Dean Housley Predicts Joy and Accomplishment 

Susquehanna University's 
opening convocation was held 
Sunday evening, September 1 at 
7 p.m. in Weber Chapel 
Auditorium. This marks the start 
of another academic year, Sus- 
quehanna's 128th. 

Dr. Donald Housley 

Dr. Donald D. Housley, pro- 
fessor of history and the new 
dean of S.U.'s School of Arts and 
Sciences, delivered the convoca- 
tion address. Dr. Housley re- 
placed Dr. Frank W. Fletcher, 
who chose to return to teaching 
and writing. 

Dr. Cunningham presented 23 
associate or bachelor's degrees to 
students who completed their 
academic work during the sum- 
mer. Academic prizes and 
scholarships were awarded to 14 
students, and three faculty 
members received 10 year service 
awards. Also, internationally 
renowned sculptor William C. 
Severson, noted for his public 1 
sculptor, received an honorary 
Doctor of fine Arts degree at the ' 

Following is a portion of Dr.) 
Housley's address: 

As a historian I am inclined to ! 
search for the legacies of the past | 
in any contemporary situation. It 
is difficult for me to parse out this 
legacy in our contemporary life 


Inauguration Set 

One year ago this issue, The 
Crusader headline read "SU 
Presidential Search Begins." 
Well, one year later, the Sus- 
quehanna Presidential Search has 
officially come to an end. Dr. Joel 
L. Cunningham will be in- 
augurated as the University's 
13th president on Sunday, Sept. 
29, as the highlight of Susquehan- 
na's traditional Homecoming 
Weekend. The weekend will 
feature concerts, speakers, and 
the special Joffrey II Dancers 

presentation of Hans Christian 
Anderson's classic a time ballet, 
as the first Artist Series presenta- 
tion of the year, in addition to the 
homecoming parade and football 
game. Student involvement in the 
inauguration is encouraged. 

We of the Crusader Staff, on 
behalf of the entire Susquehanna 
student body, would like to ex- 
tend a heartfelt congratulations 
to Dr. Cunningham on his ap- 
pointment and wish him much 
success in his new position. 

because I am within it and lack 
perspective and because the in- 
stitution has been changing 
radically for a quarter of a cen- 
tury and novelty rather than 
tradition seems our normal state. 
So, I would offer this hypothesis 
that at least four threads from 
our past are woven into the tex- 
ture of our college community. 

First, the college seems to have 
had a practical cast to its pur- 
poses from the beginning. Ben- 
jamin Kurtz, the institutions's 
founder, wanted to quickly and 
cheaply supply Pastors for vacant 
Lutheran parishes. While his pur- 
poses were compromised from 
the beginning, an expectation 
that education would carry the 

student directly to a task was sus- 
tained, particularly after 1900 
when the business program at the 
college began to flourish. So, 
along the spectrum of thought 
from aesthetic reflection to con- 
crete application, we have tended 
toward the latter and there has 
been a healthy tension on the 
campus because of this. Secondly, 
the Selinsgrove community and 
the many faculty and students 

coming to the campus from this 
region have been of German ex- 
traction. This ethnic group has 
been noted, perhaps superficially, 
for the sobriety and diligence 
with which it pursues its labors. 

We have, I would speculate, in- 
herited a strong commitment to a 
purposeful, perhaps even 
ponderous, pursuit of our in- 
quiry. The work ethic is alive and 
well here. Thirdly, we are related 
to the Lutheran Church— a rela- 
tionship which has influenced us 
in at least two ways. The First 
Article of Luther's creed, "I 
believe in God the Father 
Almighty, Maker of heaven and 
earth," leads to the conclusion 
that the world is good and the 
study of it, by all types of people 
using varied methodologies, is 
good. This emphasis liberates the 
intellect and requires a pluralistic 
community. The second in- 
fluence we have inherited from 
this Lutheran relationship is an 
international orientation. The 
dispersion of European 
Lutherans and their missionary 
work dug channels to the varied 
peoples of the world with which 
we are increasingly concerned. 

The final historic thread I see 
operating in our life today is the 
product of almost a quarter cen- 
tury of volcanic change. The Sus- 
quehanna of the 1950's was a 
third of its contemporary size 
and, as was true of many small 
liberal arts colleges, advertised 
itself as a Christian College— as 
an institution with somewhat 
narrowly construed sacred pur- 
poses that were suffused through 

the classroom, in the dormitory 
and the dining hall. Two power- 
ful forces in the 1960's per- 
manently changed the college: 
the opportunities presented by 
the baby boom and the cultural 
revolution which followed in the 
wake of this infusion of new 
students. Students of many 
backgrounds wanted an educa- 
tion in the 1960's and the college 
expanded its facilities and staff to 
accommodate them. The vision 
of faculty and students became 
more secular than it had been and 
the cultural revolution of the late 
1960's complemented this 
changed vision by stressing in- 
dividual rights and a professional 
development but unlike that 
available at large public institu- 
tions. The growth and rapid 
changes of the 1960's and early 
1970's shook the college from its 
traditional moorings and drew it 
into the competitive environment 
we now have in higher education. 
In conclusion, let me say that 
Susquehanna is a community of 
inquiry which has as its center 
people mutually bound in the 
play of the imagination. These 
people will have an experience 
together which, though occa- 
sionally painful, is also one of joy 
and accomplishment. I trust that 
you will so find it during this, the 
128th academic year at Sus- 

Interim Chaplain Named 

Along with the new school 
year, come many new faces on 
campus. Among them are incom- 
ing freshman, transfer students, 
and new faculty and staff 
members. This year we also have 
a Interim Chaplain, the Rev. E. 
Raymond Shaheen, D.D., of 
Silver Spring, Md. 

Chaplain Shaheen will serve 
the university during the search 
for a successor to the Rev. Glenn 
E. Ludwig, who held the universi- 
ty chaplaincy since 1980. Mr. 
Ludwig recently accepted the 
post of senior pastor of the First 
Evangelical Lutheran Church, 
Ellicott City, Md. 

Dr. Shaheen comes to us from 
St. Luke's Lutheran Church in 
Silver Spring. He recently retired 
from his position there as senior 
pastor. He is a native of 
Williamsport, Pa., and former 
pastor of Messiah Lutheran 
Church in South Williamsport. 

He attended Montoursville, 
Pa., public school and received 
his bachelor's degree in history 
from Susquehanna University in 
1937. He received his divinity 
degree from the Lutheran 
Theological Seminary at Get- 
tysburg, Pa., and an honorary 
Doctor of Divinity degree from 
Gettysburg College. 

Dr. Shaheen's 45-year parish 
career has included numerous 
retreat sessions for pastors, young 
people, adults, overseas mis- 
sionaries, and military chaplains. 
He has also conducted a number 
of study tours in Europe and the 
near east, and has traveled exten- 
sively on special assignments for 
the Lutheran Church in 
American (LCA) in Africa, Asia, 
Europe, and South America. 

Prior to his retirement he was 
active on several LCA boards and 
committees, including the Board 
of Deaconess Work, the Commis- 

sion on Evangelism, the LCA Ex- 
ecutive Council, and the Board of 
World Missions. He is also a 
former member of the Sus- 
quehanna Board of Directors. 

A search committee has been 
formed at Susquehanna Universi- 
ty to formally elect a new 
chaplain. It is chaired by Dr. Neil 
H. Potter, professor of chemistry 
and a Susquehanna University 
faculty member since 1966. 

"The search committee will 
have its first meeting early in 
September," Dr. Potter said. "We 
anticipate starting advertising for 
the post shortly thereafter. We 
already have a number of 

Until a new chaplain is found, 
Dr. Shaheen is filling the gap. His 
office is in Weber Chapel 
Auditorium, so if you have a free 
minute, stop over and say, "hi!"

Campus Notes 

Look Alive for Arts Alive 


Congratulations to Joseph H. 
Boileau who received a 700 dollar 
scholarship award from the Penn- 
sylvania Institute of Certified 
Public Accountants over the 
summer. Boileau is a senior 
Dean's List student majoring in 
accounting and minoring in com- 
puter science. 


You see them walking by, 
secretly scanning those ivy- 
covered walls for some tiny 
change. "It doesn't look any dif- 
ferent," you hear them mutter 
under their breath as they stroll 
away, trying to look as if they 
really do know what went on in- 
side those walls. 

Only when you venture inside, 
however, can you truly see the 
dramatic effects of the long- 
awaited renovation of Hassinger 
Hall. The most noticeable im- 
provements can be seen in the 
corridors, and of course, in the 
bathrooms, whose reputation has 
terrified freshmen for years. 

The corridors have a new floor, 
new paint, and new lighting... to 
help alleviate that "dungeon" 
look. The bathrooms are com- 
pletely new and have been en- 
larged. Over-all occupancy of the 
building has been reduced, and 
the extra room has been used to 
provide a study room for each 
floor, as well as a larger study 
lounge in the basement. 

Another major difference is 
the presence of women students 
living on the first floor, and a 
historic first woman head resi- 
dent for the dorm. In addition, 
the physical plant has repaired 
and matched up the furniture in 
each room. Work is still being 
done throughout the building, 
but this change on campus is cer- 
tainly for the better.

Meeting Rooms #2-4, 

Campus Center 

See YOU there! 




Has the following question 
entered your mind this past week 
— what is a bulldozer doing be- 
tween Steele and Fisher halls? It 
sure seems like a bizarre way to 
welcome us back to campus! Is it 
really for Seibert's new cable 
lines? new telephones? or maybe 
they are putting a new goldfish 
pond in. 

Sorry — none of the above. 

This area is being developed in- 
to a new park in memory of Rich 
Soder, a TKE brother who died 
in 1983. Most of the funds used 
in building the park were donated 
by TKE and the Class of 1983. 

The park will be triangular in 
shape. At each of the three cor- 
ners there will be brick planters 
and benches. The center of the 
park, or kiosk, will hold a bulletin 
board and a campus map. New 
outdoor lighting, similar to 
Seibert's, will be added, and the 
old asphalt sidewalks replaced 
with cement. 

All of the masonry work 
should be completed in 
November. New trees and shrubs 
will be added next spring. All in 
all, we can look forward to this 
pleasant addition to campus.

ACTS 29 

Have you ever read the 29th 
Chapter of Acts? If so, you must 
have a unique Bible, because 
Acts ends at Chapter 28. "Acts 
29" is a ministry where teams of 
students go to area churches and 
do some form of ministry. Teams 
have used singing, drama, dance, 
clowning, puppetry, preaching, 
and instrumental music to reach 
over 200 congregations in the 
past five years. No experience is 
needed to be on a team, just a 
desire to meet people and serve 
God. If this sounds interesting to 
you, come to the "Acts 29" "In- 
formational Meeting" on Sept. 22 
at 7 p.m. in Horn Meditation 
Chapel, or talk to Brenda Tice or 
Pastor Shaheen.

Lecture - "Ecuador and Peru", Degenstein Campus Center 
Meeting Rooms 1-4, $1 admission, 10:00 a.m. 

Classes have begun and the 
doldrums are about to set in any 
time now. As the weekend ap- 
proaches, students all over this 
campus begin to ask the burning 
question, "What is there to do in 
Selinsgrove?" Selinsgrove in this 
sense meaning the town, that 
place down the street that boasts 
about its two banks and laundry- 
mat. Sure there are lots of things 
to do downtown if you enjoy 
watching people putting their dir- 
ty clothing in a machine that 
grunts and belches or if you like 
spending entire evenings hanging 
out on the street corner. But, if 
these things don't turn you on, 
look for something to do right 
here on the campus of Sus- 
quehanna University. 


No, it is true. There are so 
many events happening on this 
campus that if all the students 
were aware of what was going on 
they would have a hard time try- 
ing to decide which events to go 
to. That's where "Arts Alive" 
comes in. We are the project that 

is responsible for bringing you, 
that bored student with nothing 
to do but hang out on the street 
corners of downtown Selins- 
grove, all the news of the upcom- 
ing artistic events, concerts, 
plays, musicals, and exhibits. 

We make posters, we stuff 
mailboxes, we send out a bi- 
weekly newsletter letting you 
know when the arts are going to 
come alive on the SU campus. 
And still, week after week, I hear 
people talking like Doug Whiner 
saying, "I'm sooo bored, Wendy. 
What is there to do tonight?" 
You know, I just hate it when 
that happens, because there is 
much to be offered and such a 
small percentage of this campus 
takes advantage of it. 

Imagine this guys: You meet a 
really cute freshman girl and you 
finally ask her out during bio lab. 
She says yes, (you knew all along 
she would) and then comes the 
problem.... You've been sitting 
on the street corner every night 
for two weeks and now, all of a 
sudden you have a date. You lean 
over to her and say in your GQ 
voice, "Why don't we sit on the 

Orientation '85 

Perhaps no other time 
throughout one's four years at 
college is as hectic as Freshman 
Orientation. No matter how 
much fun it is... no matter how 
great it is to meet so many new 
people... "I couldn't wait 'til it 
was over!" still sums up the relief 
most freshmen feel at finally be- 
ing able to put aside the freshman 
label and settle into a normal 
routine. Now that the Orienta- 
tion Team has retired their 
orange t-shirts, and everyone 
seems to be finally unpacked (and 
to think just one week ago you 
would have sworn all junk you 


Auditions for the SU Singers 
show choir will be held at 1 :00 on 
Sunday, Sept. 8 in Heilman 
Rehearsal Hall. 

SU Singers is a student-directed 
singing and dancing group that 
presents two campus concerts 
each year. In addition, SU 
Singers has performed at local 
high schools as well as the Sus- 
quehanna Valley Mall. Member- 
ship is limited to 12 singers and 
two accompianists, and is based 
solely on audition. There are posi- 
tions available in all voice parts 
and for an accom pianist. Please 
prepare a pop or show tune and 
come prepared to dance. An ac- 
compianist will be provided. No 
prior experience is needed. If you 
have any questions, contact Lori 
Krug (x367) or Brenda Tice 


American Collegiate Poets An- 
thology is sponsoring a national 
college poetry contest open to all 
university students interested in 
having their works printed. Cash 
prizes will be offered to the top 
five poems. The contest deadline 
is Oct. 31. Please see the English 
department for more details. 

brought would never fit into your 
room!) the exhaustion of orienta- 
tion seems to be slowly catching 
up with everyone. Even though 
the many new names don't seem 
to stick in your mind, everyone 
has been seeing familiar faces. A 
welcome greeting in an unknown 
crowd seems to be, "Hey, didn't 
we dance back to back at 
Playfair?!" And I doubt there 
were too many people there who 
couldn't have used a "standing 
ovation" in the face of such 
newness. No matter how hectic 
orientation seems, however, most 
freshmen enjoy the opportunity 
to meet new classmates, and 
more than one has asked about 
just how you get those orange 
t-shirts for next year, anyhow? 

street corner of Selinsgrove for 
awhile, then we could grab some 
pizza at D.J.'s." You figure it's 
got to be a cheap date since 
you've spent all your money on 
those over-priced books in the 
bookstore. She figures you are a 
real waste product and she dumps 
formaldehyde all over your lab 

But, imagine what she would 
say if you leaned over and in your 
best GQ voice said, "Why don't 
we catch the Artist Series 
tonight, go out for a pizza and 
then go for a moonlight stoll 
along the Susquehanna River." 

"Oh, that sounds romantic," 
she replies. You begin to think, 
"Romantic and expensive. But 
no, I get one ticket to every Artist 
Series event free with my student 
ID and that won't cost me a 
thing. Then I can get ID's from 
the guys who don't want to go 
and scalp their tickets downtown 
for half price. By that time 111 
have enough money for pizza." 
Then you begin to sweat, your 
heart beats faster, you are clam- 
my all over as you think, "Uh oh. 
I don't know where the next Ar- 
tist Series is held, or what time it 
begins, or even what it is." And 
that is where we come in. Every 
time an artistic event is about to 
take place on campus "Arts 
Alive" is there. We will let you 
know through posters, mailbox 
stuffings, and our bi-weekly 
newsletter what the event is, 
where ticktes can be obtained 
with student IDs), and where and 
when the event is to be held. The 
Arts are definitely on the campus 
of Susquehanna University and 
free is certainly a price anyone 
can pay for admission. 

So look alive for "Arts Alive" 
information and we guarantee 
that you will never spend another 
evening standing on the corner of 
Snyder County Trust watching 
pick-up trucks drive away into 
the sunset.

Friday, September 6, 1985— THE CRUSADER— Page 3 

A New Crusade 

Approximately 60 years ago, 
Luther Grossman, the Sus- 
quehanna athletic director at that 
time, proclaimed a "crusade" for 
the athletic policy. His motto was 
"sports for all and sports for 
sports' sake." During the summer 
break I realized it was time for a 
"new crusade." A crusade by the 
students, faculty, administration, 
and alumni to renew the crusader 
spirit that has been fading away 
with time. 

I was truly not aware of this 
until after talking with an alum- 
nus, who could still sing the 
school fight song after 30 years. 
He told me about the football 
games and the bonfires on Friday 
nights before a game which got 
every student ready and psyched 
for the next day's game. This en- 
thusiasm was not only for the 
football games but lasted the en- 
tire year. It would be great to see 
this same attitude today. 

Every year someone writes an 
editorial in The Crusader about 
how disgusting our school colors 
are or how we should change 
from the Crusaders to the lions, 
tigers, bulldogs, or anything else. 
It is true our colors are not the 
most common but they are ours, 
and it makes us different and 
allows us to stand out. That is all 

Our Corner 

the more reason to let them fly 
high. It's the same with the 
nickname, it may not be the 
easiest word to incorporate into a 
cheer, nor can I think of any 
other school with the crusader as 
its mascot, but face it Susquehan- 
na, we are Crusaders and there is 
no reason why we shouldn't be 
proud of it. 

We are at the threshold of a 
new year and I cannot think of a 
better time to start a new crusade 
then now. We have changed to a 
new calendar and on Sept. 29 we 
will witness the inauguration of a 
new president. On that weekend 
we should show the world, or at 
least Selinsgrove, that we are the 
Crusaders and that we are 
number one! Instead of just get- 
ting rowdy and enthusiastic over 
the social activities of the 
weekend, let's also devote our 
energies and enthusiasm to our 
school by flying the orange and 
maroon, and cheering the name 
Crusaders on to a victory on the 

I challenge you to get involved 
in the activities, clubs, and 
organizations throughout the 
year to better both yourself and 
the school! 

Jim Faust, SGA President 

I suppose the first order of 
business should be to say hello to 
all the returning students and to 
welcome the freshmen to our lit- 
tle corner of the world. As the re- 
turning students can see, The 
Crusader has a new look. It also 
has a new staff and some new 
features. In fact, SU itself has 
gone through many changes and 
we will try to keep you, our 
readers, updated. 

Some of these changes can be 
found elsewhere in this issue and 
others will be covered in the 
weeks to come. These include the 
new phone system and the many 
recent faculty changes. Also up- 
coming will be a cartoon series 
and several weekly columns. 

We at The Crusader wish to in- 
vite all students to participate in 
the production of this paper. 
Anyone interested in assisting in 
areas such as writing, typing, 
gathering ideas, and the actual, 
physical production should con- 
tact the paper through campus 
mail, box 772. 

We also invite students to ex- 
press their opinions and views 
through letters to the editor. Let- 
ters must be typed, double 
spaced, and signed, although we 
will withhold the name upon re- 
quest. Also, anyone interested in 
taking out a classified ad or, on a 
trial basis, personal ads, may do 
so free of charge. This is a new 
feature and we hope to receive a 
positive response. 

A final note concerning a word 
that, henceforth, will not appear 
in print— apathy. This was a big 
topic last year and an entire issue 
was devoted to it. This years staff 
has decided that ignoring this 
problem will make it go away. All 
the attention given it last year 
turned it into a self -fulfilling pro- 

New Projects on Campus 

phecy. Help us by ignoring this 
topic in letters and taking a 
positive outlook. We got involved 
in this paper because we had an 
opportunity to save it. I think 
others will get involved when 
they see they have a chance to be 
a part of the action. This issue is 
short due to time and manpower, 
but we plan to expand and you 
can help. 

As we are an inexperienced 
staff, we welcome your support 
and criticism. Please feel free to 
drop us a note through campus 
mail or stop by The Crusader of- 
fice, located downstairs in the 
Campus Center.

OSCAR by Wayne Pyle 

Susquehanna University has 
an advantage over many other 
colleges of its type in the project 
system. The system allows 
students to offer a wide variety of 
services to other students and to 
the community. 

"Arts Alive" under the able 
leadership of Adam Bates helps 
to stimulate interest in artistic 
events and exhibits that are hap- 
pening on campus and in sur- 
rounding communities. 

"Arboretum" led by Mark 
Robinson informs students, facul- 
ty, and visitors of the plants and 
animals located on campus. They 
feel that by looking at thexampus 
as a place for environmental 
study, much may be learned. 

"Computer Consultants" 
wishes to increase campus 
awareness of computers and their 
usefulness through installation 
and maintenance of microcom- 
puters, and additional documen- 
tation in specific functions of the 
computer. Tutorial services are 
offered. Connie Eckhart leads the 

"Career Crusaders" under 
Laurie Turns' leadership, is 
designed to aid S.U. students in 
identifying for themselves the 
kind of career planning assistance 
they need and have available to 
them through the career 
Development Office. 

"Doctor's Convalescent" ex- 
amines issues which concern the 
lifestyles and living conditions of 
the elderly and brings these issues 
to the attention of the campus 
community. This group, led by 
Carol Kepner plans group ac- 
tivities at Selinsgrove center as 
well as establishing a relationship 
with Dee, a 21 year old comatose 

"Honors Program" using 
seminars and other activities ex- 

amines issues which concern not 
only the campus community, but 
also society as a whole. Honors is 
led by Kat Kissinger. 

"International" promotes 
cultural awareness on campus 
under the leadership of the 
language department. 

"Big Brothers" Brad Sahler 
leads this group providing their 
little brother with guidance and 
direction toward a positive moral 
well being. 

"Crossroads" with Dawne 
Fritz leading enhances the 
ministries of area churches 
primarily through establishment 
of relationships with junior and 
senior high youth. 

"Cub Scouts" with John Gart 
ner in charge provides needed 
assistance to the local cub scout 
pack, enhances their existing pro- 
gram with their ideas and past ex- 
perience, and emphasizes 
scouting values through atten-

Preview of the Five Fall Sports 

The five Susquehanna Univer- 
sity fall sports teams swing into 
action in September, aiming to 
better the records of their 1984 
predecessors. All five units posted 
winning marks last season and 
combined to capture almost 71 
percent of their contests. 

The Crusaders cross country 
squad, under the direction of 
Coach Stan Seiple, is the de- 
fending Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference (MAC) champion. The 
harriers also placed third in the 

National Collegiate Athletic 
Association (NCAA) Division HI 
Mideast Regional and qualified 
for the Division III national 
meet. Seiple has guided his teams 
to a 59-14-1 record in five years 
at Susquehanna. 

Leading returnees from 1984s 
14-2 team are a trio of 
sophomores. Michael Burton of 
West Orange, N.J.; John Connel- 
ly of Holmdel, N.J.; and Todd 
Quackenboss of Whitehouse Sta- 
tion, N.J., were consistent top 10 
finishers during their rookie 

After its most successful 
season in history, the Susquehan- 
na field hockey team hopes to 
lengthen the good times under 
coach Connie Delbaugh. The 
1984 stickers finished 9-3, the 
most wins ever in a season for a 
S.U. field hockey squad. 

Susquehanna made the MAC 
playoffs with a second-place 
finish in the conference's North- 
west League but was eliminated 
by Gettysburg College 1-0 in the 

quarterfinals. The goal was one 
of only five allowed by the 
Crusaders, a school record for the 
least number of goals given up in 
a season. 

Several members of that solid 
defense return to the 1985 team. 
They include junior Ruth Jones 
of Baltimore, MD, and 
sophomore Joanne McNamara of 
Ridgefield, CT. 

Coach Delbaugh plans to field 
a potent offense led by Sus- 
quehanna's all-time leading 
scorer, Jean Flaherty of Olney, 
MD. The senior registered five 
goals and one assist to tie for the 
last year's team scoring lead with 
juniors Felicia McClymont of 
Tunkhannock, PA and Megan 
Moyer of Landisburg, PA. 

On the soccer field, Susquehan- 

na will aim to better 1984's 7-4-4 
mark and improve its fourth- 
place finish in the MAC- 

Coach David Hahn enters his 
third year at the Crusader helm 
with 10 returning letterwinners 
that carry a heavy toad of offen- 
sive firepower. Last year's leading 
scorers, junior Paul Brady of 
Holmdel, N.J. and seniors Tim 
Kinsella of Linden, N.J. and Kirk 
Yoggy of Mountainside, N.J., 
return to lead the Orange and 
Maroon attack. The trio of for- 
wards each had six goals and 
three assists. 

In addition, five-goal scorer 
Erik Rank of Boiceville, N.Y., is 
back to wear the Susquehanna 
uniform. Rank is a sophomore. 

Debora Fore replaces former 

S.U. volleyball coach Donna 
Papa. Fore inherits a team that 
was 23-11 pn 1984, the first win- 
ning season in Crusader 
volleyball history. 

Much like the field hockey and 
soccer teams, the volleyball unit 
returns a strong nucleus of 
players from last year. Among 
the standouts are seniors Kat 
Kissinger of Klingerstown, PA; 
Kris Hauhuth of Westport, CT; 
and junior Anne Davey of 
Broomall, PA. The top three 
returnees combined to lead the 
team in serving percentage, ser- 
vice aces, reception percentage, 
and block assists. 

This concludes a took at four 
of the five fall sports. See next 
week's issue for the 1985 football

Debora Fore and William 
"Rocky" Rees have joined the 
coaching staff at Susquehanna 
University, according to Dr. Joel 
L. Cunningham, president of the 

Fore was named to replace 
Donna Papa as head softball and 
volleyball coach. She was former- 
ly head softball coach at Lynch- 
burg (VA) College and had also 
been an assistance coach for both 
the women's basketball and 
volleyball teams during her two 
years at the school. 

"I am very excited to move to a 
new area and come to a school 
that has winning programs," 
Fore said. "It will be a challenge 
to maintain the winning tradition 
that Coach Papa has 

The 26-year-old Fore received 
the bachelor of science degree in 
health, physical education, and 
recreation from Longwood in 
1980. This year she received the 
master of education degree in 
sports administration from 
Lynchburg. Fore is a member of 
the American and Virginia 
Alliances of Health, Physical 
Education, and Recreation Direc- 
tors. She chaired the student sec 
tion of the Virginia chapter at 
Longwood in 1979. 

Rees replaces Bill Moll as head 
football coach of the Crusaders. 
For the past two years, he was an 
assistant coach at Colgate 

University, in charge of the offen- 
sive backs and tight ends. 

"It is a great opportunity to 
become a head coach, especially 
at Susquehanna," Rees said. "I 
have great respect for the 
winning tradition Coach Moll 
established. We are similar in 
coaching philosophies, so this in- 
creases our chances for success 
this season." 

Prior to his work at Colgate, 
Rees served as an assistant coach 
at Bucknell University from 
1977-83. He was the* offensive 
coordinator at the Lewisburg 
school. His first head coaching 
job was at Newark (DE) High 
School from 1974-77, where his 
teams combined for a 28-5-1 
record. The 1976 club went 12-0 
and won the Flight A state title. 
Rees received bachelor of 
science and master of education 
degrees in health and physical 
education from West Chester in 
1971 and 1979, respectively. The 
new S.U. gridiron coach is a 
member of the American Foot- 

Coach Rocky Rees 

ball Coaches Association and is a 
former president of the Blue Hen 
Coaches Association. He is also a 
member of Phi Epsilon Kappa, 
the professional physical educa- 
tion service fraternity. 

Fore and Rees will both serve 
as instructors in physical educa- 
tion at Susquehanna in addition 
to their coaching duties.

For Class of '89 

New Core Course 

Do some of you notice the ob- 
vious lunch rush at 11:35 on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays? It may 
interest you to know that there 
are no scheduled classes at this 
time. Would you like to know 
why? Every Tuesday and Thurs- 
day from 11:35-12:35 has been 
set aside for Orientation to 
Academe. This new lecture 
series, required of all freshman, is 
a part of the new core section 
called "Personal Development." 
These are courses designed to 
help freshmen make the adjust- 
ment to college life, both 
academically and socially. 

Orientation to Academe has 
already begun. The first lecture, 
"On Being a Reasonable Adven- 
turer," was given by Dr. Joel 
Cunningham during the first 
week of classes. Dr. Cunningham 
said that we should be interested 
in everything, and use our time 
thoughtfully. He also felt that 
our own and others' 
stereotypes of ourselves are what 
prevent us from pursuing our 

Just this past Tuesday, the first 
discussion group was held, using 
Dr. Cunningham's lecture as a 
basis. The discussion sessions are 
attended by freshmen, and are led 
hv members of FORCE 
(Freshmen Orientation Residen- 
tial Community Educators.) 
Discussion groups are broken 

down by dorms, and the size of 
each group varies, depending 
upon the number of freshmen in 
each dorm. At the beginning of 
each session there are ice- 
breakers which allow group 
members a chance to get to know 
each other better. Then they 
discuss the lecture around a 
group of common questions. One 
of the questions for this weeks 
discussion was, "In what ways do 
you think college differs from 
high school?" 

This non-credit, required 
course offers an excellent oppor- 
tunity for freshmen and FORCE 
members alike. For FORCE 
members it is an excellent oppor- 
tunity for undergraduate 
students to teach a required 
course. For freshmen, despite the 
extra time, it allows a unique 
chance for orientation to college 
to last longer than just three 

The student-run discussions 
allow for a more casual and 
friendly atmosphere, resembling 
a big rap session. Still there are 
rules. First of all, all freshman 
must attend all of these lectures 
and discussions. You are also re- 
quired to participate in the discus- 
sions. You may not put down 
someone else's opinion, and you 
are asked to speak directly to the 
members of your group. Should 

Cable Service Set 


Last spring the Service Electric 

Cable TV company made a visit 
to the SU campus in which many 
illegal cables were cut in Smith, 
Reed, and Aikens. It was 
rumored that a repeat offense 
would carry a fine of $500. The 
school then chose to subscribe

staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assingments of articles for the

Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus 

the cable contract was not yet 
settled, with the possibility of the 
cable service being stopped. That 
story was proven unfounded this 
week during a brief interview 
with Joel Cunningham. In fact, 
the contract was signed on Aug. 

The terms of the contract pro- 
vide the basic package of 12 
channels. This varies slightly 
from last year's system in that the 
USA, ESPN, and TBS television 
networks have been removed. 
Also, at this time the cable com- 
pany will not permit students to 
subscribe to a pay TV channel, 
although it may be possible in the

Other classes required under 
the heading of "Personal 
Development" include Introduc- 
tion to Library Research and 
Career Planning. Also, in the lat- 
ter half of this term a second 
course begins called The Im- 
provement of College Reading. 
This is for those incoming 
freshmen who did not pass the 
Nelson Denny Reading Test. 

Lectures in the Orientation to 
Academe series are open to all 
students. The next lecture will be 
held Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 11:35 
a.m. in Weber Chapel Audi- 
torium. The speaker will be the 
Rev. Glenn E. Ludwig, forme 
Chaplain to the University. Hi} 
topic is "Foundations for the 
Future: Values and Decision 
Making." Other speakers include 
James F. Mullen, instructor. 
Center for Academic Advance- 
ment, Bloomsburg University 
(Successful Study Habits) and Dr. 
Susan Rae Belle Bowers, assistant 
professor of English, Susquehan- 
na University (Communication 
Skills). Do not hesitate to attend 
all of these interesting lectures, 
especially since you can not use 
class as an excuse!

Vaccination Warning 

Despite repeated warnings 
from the Health Center, health 
forms on file indicate that one- 
quarter of the student body still 
does not have the required im- 
munizations for admission to the 
University. It has been a Sus- 
quehanna admission requirement 
of all students to have been im- 
munized with either a M.R. (Ger- 
man and regular measles) or 
M.M.R. (mumps, measles, and 
rubella) shot before entering SU. 

Sept. 20-22 

Tennis Tourney 

The fifth annual Susquehanna 
Open Tennis Tournament will be 
held Sept. 20-22 on the SU 
courts. All tennis players in the 
Susquehanna Valley are invited 
to participate, according to tour- 
nament director Gary Fincke, 
who is also the men's tennis 
coach at the university. 

There are several divisions in 
the tourney, including men's A 
and men's B, along with singles 
play for women, boys and girls 
(16-and-under), and youngsters 
(14 and under, and 12-and- 
under). There is also competition 
slated for men's, women's, boy's 
(16-and-under), and mixed 

Dr. Fincke noted that entry 
fees are $4 for adult singles, $3 
for junior singles, $6 for adult 
doubles, and $5 for junior 
doubles. Trophies will be 
awarded to first and second-place 
finishers in each division. There 

will be additional awards for the 
12 and 14-and-under participants. 
Players may register for the 
tournament by picking up an en- 
try form from Gary Fincke, at 
the academic skills center in the 
basement of the library. The 
deadline for entries is Sept. 17 
and all participants are responsi- 
ble for calling Dr. Fincke at 
374-4598 Sept. 18 for their start- 
ing times. Proceeds from the 
event will benefit the SU men's 
tennis program. 



Some documentation is needed 
to prove one has been immu- 
nized, but many students have 
not indicated, on health forms or 
otherwise, of having either of 
these shots. If the student cannot 
prove that he/she has had the im- 
munization or the disease, that 
student faces one of several alter- 
natives. There is a blood test 
which can detect the presence of 
antibodies in the bloodstream, 
proving that immunization has 
already taken place. This test is 
fairly expensive. Without proof 
from this test, however, students 
must obtain the needed im- 
munizations, or they will be 
placed at the discretion of the 
Dean of Students. These shots 
can be obtained during Health 
Center hours at a fee of $12 for 
the M.R. shot or $17 for the 
M.M.R. shots. 

The concern about these par- 
ticular immunizations lies both in 
the fear of a possible epidemic, as 
was experienced by several other 
schools in the state in the past 
few winters, and in the possible 
risks involved if rubella sets in 
during pregnancy. Its presence is 
associated with birth defects and 
deafness in the newborn. 

Health Center officials have re- 
quested that students requiring 
these immunizations obtain the 
shots by the end of October.

Friday, September 13, 1985— THE CRUSADER— Page 3 

The Phenolumn 

We had just finished stuffing 
the mailboxes. We stood around 
patting each other on the back 
and reveling in the satisfaction of 
a job well done, or, at least, done. 
Then someone seeded by Cloud 9 
and rained on my parade. 

"Oh, this is a great newspaper," 
she said sarcastically. 

"What's in it?" another asked. 


A week's blood, sweat, and 
tears shot to hell. I was angry at 
first, then sat down and thought 
about it. I realized that just six 
months ago, I probably said the 
same thing. But why? Now I 
know why. When all we see is the 
finished product, we tend to 
forget that someone had to put in 
a good bit of time. We may know 
a few names or recognize a few 
faces, but we often don't see them 
as people like us. 

The cafeteria provides a good 
example. We see Polly every

I Have Three 

I have three of everything, at 
least! I have three cars, all costing 
over thirty thousand. All of them 
are foreign of course! I have 
watches, three Rolex, three 
Cartier and three Swatch's of 
each color and design. I have 
three store cards, Sach's, Bloom- 
ingdale's and Fortunofs. I have 
three charge cards, American Ex- 
press Gold card, Master Card and 
Visa. I've been everywhere in the 
world people would possibly 
want to go to. I go on three shop- 
ping sprees in Paris every vear. 
30 in Beverly Hills and 300 in 
New York. I have three tur coats, 
a mink, a fox and a sable. 
Parents, you got it, I've even had 
three of them. Two fathers and 
only one mother. Ill have to see 
if I can change that. I have three 
condos in Florida, three on the 
Long Island beaches and three 
that I've never been to. I have 
three classes in school, lunch, 
gym, and study hall. Of course I 
have a note to be excused from 
gym even though I'm not hurt. 

Do you know what the best 

I'm only seventeen! 

I've had three of everything... 
at least! 

But now what!

Welcome to Susquehanna 
University. Trying to get to know 
a campus is not easy, and learn- 
ing the history behind it is even 
tougher. So to help you 
remember exactly what what is, 
here is the Phenolum Unofficial 
Guided Tour of our campus 

The big red and white 
columned building along Univer- 
sity Avenue that looks like a 
"Gone With The Wind" prop re- 
ject is our famous Slidert Hall. 
Being one of the oldest structures 
on campus today, Slidert was 
built in the early 1900s as the 
basic seat of the growing Sus- 
quehanna College. It was 
originally planned in 1902 to 
house the entire female popula- 
tion, offices of professors and ad- 
ministration, heating facilities for 
the entire campus, an 
auditorium, two gymnasiums, a 
couple of cafeterias, two rehear- 
sal halls, four tennis courts, three 
bowling alleys, and a small air- 
craft hanger. Plans were 
downgraded slightly in 1903 
when it was discovered that the 
college enrollment was 23 
students. After years of cutting 
costs and scraping for materials, 
Slidert Hall, following a massive 
dedication ceremony, was erected 
in January of 1908. It fell down 
in a small windstorm in August 
of 1908 and a second building 
soon replaced it at the cost of 
$650.25, a truly remarkable feat. 
This structure, the Slidert of to- 
day, was given its current name 

due to the tendency of the 
building to sway, slide, and sag 
under pressures of wind and 
weight, creating tilted floors and 
rooms. Recent renovations, 
though, have greatly lessened the 
huge building's complications: in 
1 975, an elevator was installed; in 
1978, so was a stairway. 

Across the grass quad to your 
left stands stately Bogus Hall. 
Bogus houses nearly all of those 
non-real courses in strange things 
like literature, theatre, and 
philosophy that only a liberal arts 
campus can provide so very well. 
The building was built as a huge 
dressing room and costume shop 
for Susquehanna's own Big Apple 
Theatre (originally intended for 
New York Broadway produc- 

VII The Phenolumn 
Freshman Campus Guide 

tions), but additional accomoda- 
tion was soon found for all non- 
real curricula, thus earning the 
hall its current name. 

Directly ahead of Bogus stands 
Stale Hall, home of math and 
business classes. Stale was the 
second building erected on cam- 
pus, and it hasn't changed since, 
hence it's rather pretentious 
name. Stale's major facilities con- 
sist of science labs, a computer 
center, and a coke machine. 

In front of Stale stands one of 
the newer buildings on campus, 
Fissure Science Hall. Aptly 
named due to the numerous 
trenches constantly being dug 
around it, the hall boasts 
hundreds of science classrooms 
and laboratories for student 
usage, one of notable interest be- 
ing Failure Lecture Hall, proudly 
the site of more final exam 
failures than any other single spot 
in Snyder County. 

The great majority of Sus- 
quehanna music classes and 
rehearsals are located in Heinekin 
Hall, the low building near the 
center of campus. Heinekin was 
originally built as a zoo, with 
each animal specimen allotted it's 
own stall, but when the plan 
never came into being the depart- 
ment of music seized Heinekin as 
a rehearsal hall. Heinekin has the 
distinction of being the only 
building on campus with a 24 
hour noise requirement. 

Our library, known officially 
during the summer months as the 
Roger M. Blough Burning 
Center, houses nearly 150,000 
volumes available to swimsuit- 
clad students who visit the center 

to escape the omnipresent out- 
door comfort of the warm season. 

Many dormitories abound on 
campus. One of the more colorful 
of these is Harassinger Hall, 
located next to the library. 
Harassinger was built near the 
turn of the century to house 
female students in the presumed 
event that Slidert should fall over 
a second time. When it was de- 
cided that Slidert had stabilized, a 
male population was then ad- 
mitted to the college and housed 
in Harassinger at the expense of 
the Slidert population's peace and 
quiet, hence the dorm's name. 
Harassinger residents treated the 
poor structure very carelessly, 
and it was not discovered until a 
sandblasting experiment in 1977 
that ivy was holding the entire 
building together. 

To reduce the wearing effects 
of the freshman class over many 
years on a single dorm such as 
Harassinger, the school bought 
three identical, interchangeable 
buildings from a prefab service in 
1 963 and rotates the group every 
summer. These three low struc- 
tures near the south border of the 
campus (Reed, Smith, and Aikens 
dorms) are built on wheels in the 
mobil home mode but cannot be 
moved by students without writ 
ten permission from both the 
zoning commission and the direc- 
tor of student affairs. All three 
are locked to a chain link fence 
during the academic year to deter 

Thus ends our tour of S.U. We 
hope you have enjoyed this short 
lesson and have enriched your 
college experience. Thank You.

Rees Opens Season Against Mules 

The Susquehanna University 
football team, under new head 
coach William "Rocky" Rees, 
opens its 1985 season Saturday at 
home against Muhlenberg Col- 
lege. Rees takes over the reins 
from Bill Moll, who registered a 
32-30-1 mark in seven years at 
the Crusader helm. 

The Crusaders return 29 let- 
termen as they aim to better last 
year's 6-3 record. In the Middle 
Atlantic Conference (MAC), Sus- 
quehanna finished 5-3 and in 
third place. 

As the Crusaders take aim on 
their fifth consecutive winning 
season, Rees and his coaching 
staff must find successful 
replacements for key personnel 
from last year's team who have 
since graduated. 

For example, the offensive 
backfield was hit hard by the loss 
of 1984 MAC co-Player of the 
Year Bob Shaara at halfback and 
SU career passing yardage and 
touchdown pass leader Jim 
Wisse. Shaara ran for 787 yards 
and touchdowns last year and 
Wisse finished his collegiate 
career with 3170 yards passing 
and 26 touchdown passes. 

Among those players Rees will 
be counting on to fill those impor- 
tant roles are halfback Mike 
Leitzel of Klingerstown, Pa., and 
quarterback Ken Hughes of 
Philadelphia Pa. Leitzel, a 6-foot, 
190-pound senior, started with 
Shaara and Wisse in Susque- 
quehanna'a Wing-T offense last 
year, gaining 246 yards on the 
ground and catching 16 passes 
for 279 more. He also scored five 
touchdowns. Hughes is a 
6-foot- 1, 180-pound senior who 
saw limited action last year as 
Wisse's backup, throwing 10 

Graduation also took its toll on 
the Crusader offensive line. 
Departed are center Tim Brown, 
tackle Ray Daugherty, and guard 
Kevin Walker. Each member of 
that trio was a MAC All-Star last 
season. Returning to the offen- 
sive front are 6-foot-3, 240-pound 
senior Phil Apostolico of Wil- 
mington, Del., and 6-foot, 
220-pound Joe Malick of 
Hamden, Conn. 

There is plenty of experience in 
the 1985 Susquehanna receiving 
corps. Last year's leading pass 
catcher, 6-foot-2, 190-pound 
junior Rob Sochovka of Taylor, 
PA, returns along with Clayton

Smith of Norristown, Pa., and Al 
Bucci of Claymont, Del. 
Sochovka hauled in 26 passes for 
467 yards and four touchdowns 
while Smith, a 5-foot-10, 
160-pound sophomore, caught 12 
passes for 115 yards and a 
touchdown. Bucci, a sophomore 
at 6-foot-2, and 190-pounds, 
made six catches for 106 yards. 

Defensively, the Crusaders 
return a seasoned unit that 
allowed just 134 points last year, 
the lowest of any team in the 
MAC. Leading the veterans is 
middle guard John Cataldo of 
Giraldville, Pa. The 5-foot-ll, 

195-pound senior made 61 
tackles last season, including 
three quarterback sacks. He also 
recovered two fumbles and 
blocked one extra point.

Other defensive returnees in- 
clude senior linebacker Jim 
Brown, (6', 195 lbs.) of Oaklyn, 
N.J.; junior tackle Steve Curran 
(6'3", 2 1 5 lbs.) of Minersville, Pa.; 
and junior end Dave Kells (6M M , 
185 lbs.) of Phoenixville, Pa. 
Brown made 55 tackles, grabbed 
two interceptions, and broke up 
three passes in 1984, Curran 
made 54 tackles and a fumble 
recovery, and Kells had 32 
tackles and one pass broken up. 

In the secondary, Susquehanna 
lost three starters but found three 
players who saw considerable 
playing time still on the roster. 
The departed Steve Comisac, 
Tom Lagerman, and Jerry Mc- 
Callus intercepted nine passes 
and broke up 22 more between 
them but sophomore Todd 
Coolidge of Wellsboro, Pa., who 

led the team in interceptions with 
seven, is back. Coolidge also set a 
school record for interception 
return yardage in a season with 

The other returning secondary 
members are sophomore Rich 
Cose of Wyomissing, Pa., and 
senior Ray Skursky of Harding, 
Pa. The duo split time at the 
rover position, with Close picking 
up for Skursky after the latter 
suffered an injury. Skursky made 
25 tackles, had an interception 
and a fumble recovery, and broke 
up three passes. Close registered 
36 tackles and broke up one pass. 

Another big gap that needs to 
be filled is in the kicking game. 
The Crusaders lost Todd Mc- 
Carthy, their placekicker of the 
past two years, but still have the 
services of 1984 MAC All-Star 

punter Bryan Ravitz of Vineland, 
N.J. Ravitz saw his yards-per- 
kick average slip to 36.7 last year 
after setting the single season 
school record of 38.6 yards per 
kick in 1983. 

Despite Susquehanna's third 
place MAC finish in 1894, the 
Crusaders led the conference in 
offense averaging 374.5 yards per 
game, and was second in defense, 
allowing just 259.5 yards a con- 

This is the first season since 
1974 that the Orange and 
Maroon will play 10 games, in- 
stead of the customary nine-game 
schedule. The season -opener 
against the Mules is the lone non- 
conference contest of the year. 
The Crusaders open MAC play 
Sept. 21 at Lycoming. 


Cross Country 
Off to a Great Start 

Last year the Susquehanna 
cross country team was quoted as 
saying "When Hell freezes over 
well run on the ice." This past 
Saturday, Hell showed its fury 
over the Crusaders, Susquehan- 
na's cross country team opened 
its season at the Millersville In- 
vitational. The blistering heat, 
which exceeded 95 degrees, took 
its toll on the SU harriers over 
Millersville's demanding five mile 
course. Out of the 12 runners 
who started the race only eight 
were able to finish. This still 
enabled Susquehanna to capture 

third place against highly com- 
petitive Division II teams. 

The majority of this team ~i8 
relatively young, but with the 
guidance of the senior members 
of the team and coach Sun Sieple 
they wish to achieve some im- 
pressive goals. The first is to go 
through the 1985 season 
undefeated, second is to suc- 
cessfully defend their M.A.C. ti- 
tle, third is to win the Middle- 
Atlantic Regionals, and finally to 
place in the top- 10 at the Division 
III Nationals in November.

This year's Homecoming 
Weekend promises to be much 
more than the traditional parade 
and football game. This year in- 
cludes the inauguration of Sus- 
quehanna's 13th president, Dr. 
Joel L. Cunningham. 

The beginning of this exciting 
weekend will actually be Thurs- 
day night, Sept. 26. That evening, 
Dr. Cunningham and his wife 
Trudy will attend an Inaugural 
Banquet in the Evert Dining 
Room of the Degenstein Campus 
Center. All Susquehanna 
students will be guests of the 
university at the dinner. 

Saturday morning will, of 
course, be the annual Home- 
coming Parade through the 
streets of Selinsgrove. "Inaugura- 
tion" will be the more than apt 
theme for this year's parade. Also 
on Saturday, four of the five fall 
sports teams will be competing at 
home, the feature event being the 
football game against the 
Delaware Valley Aggies at Amos 
Alonzo Stagg Field. 

Saturday evening we move to 
Weber Chapel Auditorium for 
the Joffrey II Dancers. This is the 
official opening of Susquehanna's 
artist series events. Their perfor- 
mance begins at 8 p.m. 

Inauguration 1985 

Sunday morning, there will be 
a special chapel service at 10:30 
a.m. Following the service, there 
will be an Inaugural Luncheon in 
the Evert Dining Room. The In- 
auguration beings at 3 p.m. 

The ceremony will include an 
academic procession with nearly 
100 delegrates from colleges, 
universities, and learned societies 
from across the United States. 
The student body will be 
represented by delegates from 
many of the campus organiza- 
tions. Also included will be the 
university faculty, and holders of 
honorary degrees. 

Chairman of the university's 
Board of Directors, Dr. Erie I. 
Shobert II, will preside over the 
ceremonies and administer the 
Oath of Office. Dr. Cunningham 
will be presented as President 
Designate by William C. Daven- 
port, chairman of the Presidential 
Search Committee. 

The speaker for this special oc- 
casion will be Dr. Frank 
Newman, president of the Educa- 
tion Commission of the United 
States. The title of Dr. Newman's 
address is "Leadership, Follower- 
ship, and University Survival." 

Music for the Inauguration 
will be performed by the In- 
augural Wind Ensemble, con- 

ducted by C. Scott Smith, and the 
University Concert Choir, con- 
ducted by Cyril Stretansky. 

The Inauguration committee 
has been working since June to 
make sure that everything runs 
smoothly. Chairman of the com- 
mittee is Mr. George R. F. 
Tamke, assistant to the president 
for university relations at Sus- 
quehanna. The committee con- 
sisted of students, faculty, and ad- 
ministrators from the university. 

"College and university in- 
augurations are big events," said 
Mr. Tamke. "They happen infre- 
quently so the institution always 
puts it's best foot forward." Sus- 
quehanna has only held three In- 
augurations over the last 57 

Mr. Tamke also noted the joy 
involved in preparing for and car- 
rying out this occasion. "The 
university rejoices in sharing the 
events with sister institutions. It 
allows the university to look back 
and look ahead." 

Hopefully, all of the students 
here at Susquehanna will take the 
time to join in this special event. 
Mr. Tamke said, "Inaugurations 
give an institution the chance to 
celebrate itself." As students of 
the university, we are the univer- 
sity, so come out and join in on 
all of the special Inauguration 


Susquehanna University 
Homecoming will be held Satur- 
day, Sept. 28. The annual 
celebration will open with the 
traditional Homecoming parade 
featuring the theme "Inaugura- 
tion," in honor of the induction 
of Joel L. Cunningham as Sus- 
quehanna's 13th president. The 
parade will feature many floats 
from campus dormitories and 
organizations, in addition to 
those from the greek organiza- 
tions on campus. Both The 
Selinsgrove Area High School 
Marching Band and The 
Crusader Marching Band will 
provide music. 

The parade will depart from 
the university's main gate at 
10:30 Saturday morning and 
travel down University Avenue. 
It will turn north on Market 
Street, passing through the Selins* 
grove Market Street Festival, and 
then return to Susquehanna on 
Pine Street. 

The afternoon festivities will 
begin with a pre-game presenta- 
tion of the best float award, and 
with special recognition to a Sus- 
quehanna fraternity and sorority 
for their outstanding work over 
the previous academic year. An 
Alumni band is planning special 
musical entertainment and the 

Class of 1 980 will begin their fifth 

The highlight of the day, of 
course will be the annual 
Homecoming football game pit- 
ting the Delaware Valley College 
Aggies against the Crusaders. 
The game will begin Saturday 
afternoon at 1:30 at Stagg 
Memorial Field. Half-time of the 
big game will feature both the 
crowning of the 1985 Home 
coming Queen, and the an- 
nouncement of three new 
members to the Susquehanna 
University Sports Hall of Fame. 

Other athletic events scheduled 
throughout the day include a 
field hockey game against 
Marywood College, and a soccer 
match with King's College, both 
beginning at 1 1 am, and a cross 
country tri-meet with Delaware 
Valley and York colleges at 2 pm. 

Homecoming will conclude 
with the first offering of the 
university's 1985-86 Artist Series, 
which will present the Joffrey II 
Dancers in a full-length ballet. 

Students are encouraged to 
take a part in the festivities, and 
no one will want to miss the fun.

Sadlek in the Campus Center. 

President Cunningham Loses Apples 

Photo bv the Daily Item 

Yes, that's right the president 
of our University lost a whole 
bushel of apples. Now, you might 
think that is very strange because 
you can only picture President 
Cunningham skipping through 
the forest in a red cape carrying a 
basket of apples when along 
comes a wolf and says, "My, 
what old-fashioned glasses you 

"Why they make it easier to 
watch the students with," Presi- 
dent Cunningham replies. 

The wolf, who is wearing a 
tweed jacket and a polka-dot bow 
tie then states, "What a conser- 
vative looking suit you have on." 

President Cunningham then 
calmly replies, "That is so people 
know that I am conservative and 
my glasses are not really out of 

Now you may wonder why a 
wolf would be wearing a tweed 
jacket and bow tie, but that is 
because the wolf is actually the 
President of Muhlenberg Univer- 
sity and former SU President 
Jonathan Messerli. He and 
President Cunningham each 

wagered a bushel of apples from 
their home counties, Lehigh and 
Snyder respectively, on the out- 
come of Saturday's Susquehanna 

Muhlenberg game. Unfor- 
tunately the Mules beat the 
Crusaders 30 - 7 costing our 
President his bushel of apples. So 
you can see that President Cun- 
ningham didn't lose the apples 
because he was chased by a big, 
bad wolf but because the 
Crusaders were chased by a herd 
of charging mules. And let us not 
forget how much mules love 
fresh apples.

Dear Editor 

As a sophomore, I have 
become quite familiar with the 
issue of the required Library 
Research course. Being exposed 
to it firsthand last year and listen- 
ing to comments of others brings 
me to write to "The Crusader" ex- 
pressing some ideas about the 

Susquehanna University has a 
long history of providing an ex- 
cellent liberal arts education to 
its students. To me, the idea of 
education involves learning cer- 
tain facts (reading textbooks), 
thinking about these facts 
(reading what others have felt), 
and developing and expressing 
ideas on these facts (classroom 
discussions, papers, written tests). 
In the end, the student not only 
learns facts, but learns to under- 
stand and reason based on the ex- 

Library Research, as 1 see it, in- 
volves only one segment of what 
I have discussed. That segment is 
learning facts. Library Research 
readings are assigned, and the in- 
structor teaches the exact same 
facts in the next class. There is no 
doubt that these facts are impor- 
tant, but perhaps they should be 
presented in the following man- 

As part of Freshman Orienta- 
tion, small groups should have 
tours of the library. At that time, 
they should be encouraged to buy 
the books which might be 
necessary to help them use the 
library. One does not need a pro- 
fessor to learn facts. One needs a 
professor to gain insight. Since 
this kind of insight is not needed 
in the course, why bother to try 
to teach it? 

Please understand that I do not 
intend to insult, or in any way 
question the quality of the 
library staff. Quite the contrary, 
I find them knowledgeable and 
eager to help. I only feel that the 
course offered does not properly 
fit into Susquehanna's quality 
liberal arts education mold. It 
seems to say that students cannot 
learn facts by themselves. 

The course should be offered 
to anyone who would like some 
help learning the facts, but 1 
would tend to seriously question 
an organized educational pro- 
gram at a quality university that 
teaches only facts. 

Glenn Jones 

Dear Editor: 

I have heard a rumor that The 
Crusader will soon carry an arti- 
cle which is highly critical of the 
course Introduction to Library 
Research now required of all 
students, and I am taking this op- 
portunity to explain why the 
course is required. National 
studies and our experience here 
have shown that many students 
entering college are weak in 
library skills. Even a library of 
modest size can be very com- 
plicated to use. The student who 
library cannot write good re- 
search papers. Thus, the pur- 
research papers. Thus, the pur- 
pose of the course is to enable the 
student to do the research 
necessary for a good paper. 

An exemption test is given at 
the tirst class meeting so that any 
student who already knows how 
to use a library will not have to 
take the course.

students last year, it will say 
something like the following: 

1 . Students already know how 
to use libraries. 

2. Since the course does not get 
"academic credit" it should be 
voluntary and not require outside 

3. The material covered is bor- 

To answer these point by 

1. If students already know 
how to use the library, why do so 
many fail the exemption test? 
The test in fact indicates that 
many students are unable to find 
a book in the card catalog 
because they do not know the 
filing system. 

2. Although Introduction to 
Library Research does not have a 
semester hour credit toward 
graduation, it does have 
academic credit because it ap- 
pears on transcripts and is a 
graduation requirement. There is 
-homework assigned because prac- 
tice is the best way to learn to use 
the library. 

3. Unfortunately, not every- 
thing in life is exciting. The 
material may bore some or all of 
the students in the class, but it 
happens to be useful to know. I 
thought the material covered in a 
typing course was boring, but the 
skill I acquired has served me 

I and other members of the 
library staff are open to com-

The Phenolumn 

VIII. Dealing With V. W. Crises 

by Doug Chamberlin 

Good day and welcome to 
issue number three, in true 
McKenzie style. Our topic today 
is cafeterias. Ok, so like in our 
cafeteria, the tables are, like, 
moving. What they're doing is, 
see, they're migrating south for 
the, you know warmer weather. 
They used to be in the Great 
White North, you know, Canada, 
but it got cold there about a 
month ago. So, now they're 
moving down to, like, Miami and 
now the University of Miami 
and, you know, the other Florida 
colleges are, like, just packed with 
all these cafeteria tables. 

Thanks, boys, for the introduc- 
Take off, this is our show. 

You take off, this is our 
column. Sorry about that. Bob 
and Doug do have a point. Where 
did those tables go? As if our 
cafeteria wasn't small enough, 
now they're taking tables and 
stacking chairs. Parties of five 
and six have been observed look- 
ing for a table like the Jews 
wandering the desert. From what 
we understood, the cafeteria was 
supposed to be redone. It was to 
be bigger and better than ever, 
with maybe even a second floor, 
but certainly more space. What 
happened? Couldn't they decide 
on the color scheme? 

In an effort to add ignorance to 
injury, someone came up with 

TIME: 1 1:35 Monday morning. 
PLACE: Room 13, Bogar Hall. 
CLASS: American Literature. 
INCIDENT: You're sitting in the 
third row listening to the pro- 
fessor lecture about a significant 
incident on page 22 of the 
Preface to The Catcher In The 
Rye, when your eyes begin to 
droop and your head slowly nods. 
You tell yourself that class is half 
over already and that, since it's 
going to be a long, dull lecture, a 
20 minute snooze on the desktop 
will be safe enough. You sleep. 
At ten to noon you wake up ex- 
pecting to find the professor 
droning on about the same 
significant incident and check to 
find the class eagerly reviewing 
another significant incident on 
page 426 of the novel. You shake 
your head to wake up and the 
professor asks you, "Mr. 
Johnson, are you agreeing that 
the character of Jake was 
justified when he ran off with his 
sister and began his year-long 
search for the innocence of youth 
in New York City, or are you try- 
ing to say that you agree with Sal- 
inger's stunning observation con- 
cerning the catching of children 
from their obvious fall from grace 
that we reviewed ,from page 

You've just suffered a V.W. 

INCIDENT: Today marks 
your fourth day of Russian 001 
class. It's so simple! In the past 
three days you've had to learn 
seven Russian words that make 
one sentence. Yesterday the pro- 
fessor devoted an entire class 
period to learning how to say 
"Naztrovia". You wake up a little 

the brainstorm of setting a 
schedule so that over 1000 people 
would try to each lunch in an 800 
person capacity building. As 
anyone who greased his body to 
fit in knows, I'm talking about 
the Tuesday/Thursday hysteria 
festival at 11:45. The freshman 
have orientation on Tuesday or 
have a discussion group on 
Thursday, leaving them one day 
a week to join in the fun. 
Couldn't have the time slot been 
after lunch? Maybe it couldnt, 
but this system will not do. If it 
continues, someone will be in- 
jured in a stampede for seconds. 

Fortunately, the cafeteria staff 
is doing their best to cope with 
the problem. They scheduled the 
pizza bar for last Tuesday to add 
to the bottleneck. At press time 
12 casualties were reported. To 
be fair, the cafeteria people are 
doing a good job in all areas to 
keep traffic flowing— just please 
save the specials for Mon/Wed- 

I don't know of an easy solu- 
tion, how about you boys? 

Well, like, I think you should 
all just have beer and donuts for 
lunch like me and my brother. 
Take a look at where it got us to- 
day, eh. 

Yeah, thanks for the beauty 
idea, hoseheads. I guess you folks 
are on your own on this one. See 
you next week and good day. 


late of schedule and decide to 
take the long way to class. The 
class has been in session for seven 
minutes already when you open 
the door. As you take your seat 
the Russian professor points sar- 
castically at you and tells 
the class out loud, 
"Zwoishkansticova xacch va 
shzdivwidoswiskye bkosh klid 
dostckyzchwy borschtkopf no 
szischsjoprvostyklakos!" They all 
laugh hysterically and answer in 
Russian. Then he passes out 
original copies of Chekov's 
Unabridged Works and gives a 
half hour essay test. You hand in 
five pages filled with "Naztro- 

You've just suffered a V.W. 

With classes finally in full 
swing now is the perfect time to 
explore what experts have come 
to label "Van Winkle's Syn- 
drome", a common but startling 
phenomenon afflicting nearly all 
college students. The syndrome 
consists of what seems to be a 
sudden time/knowledge warm/- 
jump of an entire group of 
students surrounding the victim 
during a class, lab, or any "team 
ing experience", resulting in com- 
plete disorientation and subse- 
quent panic for the unsuspecting 
victim. Named for the extreme 
lapse experienced by Washington 
Irving's Rip Van Winkle, the 
disease may also produce huge 
gaps in social or emotional learn- 
ing, but for our purpose, Van 
Winkle's Syndrome is a college- 
linked horror involving what cer- 
tain students tend to call "an in- 
stantaneous being left behind". 

Case studies abound...INCI- 
DENT: You go to the bathroom 
for three minutes during physics 
and return to find a graph on the 
blackboard so foreignly com- 
plicated that you'd swear Pic- 
casso drew it. 

INCIDENT: While you doodle 
on your paper for ten minutes 
during linear algebra, a miracle 
is thrust upon the rest of the class 
and they instantaneously master 
E-Mc2. You don't. 

You need not consciously 
remove yourself from concentra- 
tion on the lecture to experience 
a moment of Van Winkle's Syn- 
drome, or a "V.W. Crisis" as we 
often call it; occasionally, a "Con- 
centration Splice" may occur, 
often wreaking complete disbelief 
upon its victim. A splice takes 
the appearance of the lesson 
simply jumping ahead about two 
to three hours in an instant, as if 
the entire class (with the excep- 
tion of the victim) had been 
thrust forward into hyperspace 
and not known it. I, myself, ex- 
perienced a tragic concentration 
splice during "History of Europe" 
in high school. One moment the 
teacher was finishing up his talk 
on the Roman Empire, and the 
next he was pulling down a map 
of Paris during World War Two 
and trying to connect the two 
periods. I said, "whaaaaaaaa?" It 
took me weeks to discover that I 
had not taken a prerequisite 
course which would have filled 
the void.

Bucknell Holds Debate 

Bucknell will be hosting a 
public debate between Conser- 
vative Caucus Chairman Howard 
Phillips, and Randall Robinson, 
head of the Black American Lob- 
by for Africa. The two outspoken 
political figures will discuss U.S. 
policy towards the apartheid 
government of South Africa. The 
debate will be held in Bucknell's 
Davis Gym on Wednesday, Sept. 
25, at 8 p.m. The event will be 
free to the public. 

Arts Alive 

ROADTRIP! That guttural 
cry that screams from the throats 
of all college students at some 
point during the term is often 
quelled by an equally loud scream 
of GAS PRICES! But there is 
hope for those of us on a tight 
budget who want to travel for 
some high quality entertainment. 

Our nearest neighboring col- 
lege town is Lewisburg, home of 
Bucknell University. It is just a 
hop, skip and jump down 1 1 and 
15, around the traffic circle and 
straight driving on 15 till you 
come to the signs saying, 
They are offering a diversified 
performing arts series this year 
that everyone should know 
about. First on the agenda is 
"Ain't Misbehavin'." The Fats 
Waller show that sold out Broad- 
way for three years and took 
three Tony awards, including 
"Best Musical". "Newsday" says 
of the show, "A brassy, sassy 
show with a low-down appeal 
that's irresistible. For sheer fun, 
there's nothing to touch this 
show." You can catch this show 
at the Davis Gym, 8 pm on 
Thursday, October 17. The next 
exciting event will be the "Na- 
tional Folk Ballet of Yugoslavia." 
This company of 45 dancers and 
musicians returns after two sold- 
out tours of the USA and 
Canada. Whether it is love, court- 
ship, weddings, military spec- 
tacles, feasts festivals, or religious 
celebrations, Yugoslavian music 
and dance range from the softly 
lyrical and humorous to those of 
fierce abandon. Extravagant 
praise has been lavished on this 
group in the 34 countries they 
have toured. "This is the best 


dance event of the season, and is 
one of the best folk ensembles in 
the world." '"L'Aurore" (Paris) 
This feast of folk dancing can be 
seen Friday, November 15 at 
8:00 pm in the Davis Gym. The 
final show before Christmas 
break is "Alice Artzt," guitarist. 
"America's best player and a 
model for any guitarist" is the 
assesment of George Clinton, 
editor of England's "Guitar" 
magazine. Alice Artzt well may 
be the coup of this series. 
Although a Princeton, NJ native 
and resident of New York City, 
most of her acclaimed LP's have 
been released by British record 
companies, and she is a frequent 
guest in BBC guitar recitals. Her 
main teachers have been Ida 
Presti, Alexandre Lagoya, and 
Julian Bream. You can listen to 
her delightful strummings on 
Thursday, November 21 at 8 pm 
in the Rooke Chapel. 

For more information about 
ticket prices, group rates, etc.,

and extension to Box number

any questions you have about 
any of the area's artistic events.

campus that the Susquehanna 
community should know about, 
please let us know by sending a 
note with your name and exten-

On August 31, 1985, Phi Mu 
Delta brothers Kevin McCaffery 
and William Calvert presented a 
check of $801 .00 to an emcee for 
the Jerry Lewis Muscular 
Dystrophy Telethon. The dona- 
tion was collected by the fraterni- 
ty, and the presentation was aired 
on WHP, TV-21 of Harrisburg. 
The money was raised through a 
"Tag Day," in which the fraterni 
ty brothers requested donations 
from the patrons of malls and 
large department stores in the 
area. The brothers are planning 
further service projects to be 
completed in the 1985-86 school 

Cast Set 

On November 1st, 2nd and 
3rd, Parent's Weekend, Sus- 
quehanna will present the 
musical "Camelot" in the Weber 
Chapel Auditorium. "Camelot"

favorite castle which was sup- 
posedly located in southern 
England. It is based on the 
legends of King Arthur and his 
adventures as he seeks to rid his 
kingdom of evil. 

Those receiving leading roles 
in the play are:

Ms. Jones and Ms. Rumbaugh 

have received a just reward, 
For their patience and their care 

to study more than their share. 
Some Pi's have moved real far-

It's called ol Selinsgrove, 

we hope they like their cove.

So glad you could attend, 

Until next time, let's amend.

Frankie P. of Poultry 


Well hello fellow Susquehan- 
nians! Finally the Greek News 
has arrived and here we are again 
at SU for another fun filled year. 
Kappa Delta extends their 
warmest welcome to the class of 
1989; we hope Susquehanna has 
been all you wanted college to be 
so far, remember, it's what you 
make of it! 

We would like to congratulate 
our two new sisters, Sue Cannone 
and Christina Rigby! CON- 
WELCOME, We Love You! A 
Theta Chi for helping us 
celebrate their initiation. I 
KNOW everyone had a good 
time and Sue and Christina, you 
guys really showed your real 
colors, no pun intended! 

Kappa Delta hopes that all of 
the girls who came to our Luau 
had a good time; It was nice to 
get to know all of you and get 
psyched for Formal Rush in 

Thanks to Sigma Phi Epsilon 
for the "beachy" pre-party last 
Friday night, the lifeguard stand 
was definitely the highlight, 
THANKS GUYS; hope the sand 
wasn't too hard to clean up! Also, 
thanks Lia for the great Senior 
get together before Sig Ep. 

Lastly, KD would like to wish 
happy belated birthday wishes to 
sisters Maureen Hassett and Barb 
Flynn, also an early happy birth- 
day wish to sister Roberta Bian- 
chi; Bert, be careful, that's all I 
have to say! 

Before I go; the mystery has 
been solved! The reason why the 
girls at the KD house have not 
been getting any phone calls is 
due to the fact that the wrong 
number is listed in the 1985-86 
school calendar. The correct 
number is 357, so please call to 
keep up company, HINT, 

On a special note, Steph, 
"things can only get better!" 

"Excuse me sir, is this the 
Delta House....?" 

Until next week — KD 


Hello, SU. It's been a busy 
three weeks for the guys down on 
the avenue. Plenty of stories 
already! I would like to extend 
my thanks to the brothers who 
spent much time and labor on our 
two houses this summer. They 
look great and we deeply ap- 
preciate the gesture. Many things 
will be happening soon for us, so

friends of the fraternity keep 
your ear to the ground for 
rumblings down at 401 this year. 
Also, any upperclass guy in- 
terested in the Phi Sig way of life, 
get in touch with me or Flock 
soon. Don't miss out on the fun 
of pledging. Also, a note to all old 
little sisters: contact Mike, or he 
will be contacting you soon about 
some serious partying. 

Now, that business is done, I 
would like to say that our leader 
did a remarkable job of holding 
walls up all over campus on 
Saturday. Dante proved to 
everyone he can make change for 
a dollar and gets the award for 
last week. Flock, your clothes 
look good, especially on everyone 
else. Wanted: Dribb's sunglasses. 
Manson stoooed bv again and we 
should thank the Ryan's. To all 

freshmen who did not understand 
this paragraph, come on down to 
401 and 403 anytime and get to 
know us. Who knows maybe you 
to can be immortalized in print if 
you do something stupid enough. 
Talk to ya later and remember, 
401 ROCKS! 


"It's Greek to us" appears in 
The Crusader for the benefit of 
all people on campus at Sus- 
quehanna. As organizations 
directly involving over one third 
of the campus, greek news gives 
each fraternity and sorority a 
chance to inform everyone of the 
activites they are involved in, as 
well as giving people something 
to laugh or smile about. The 
greek organizations as a whole 
are on campus to benefit others 
as well as themselves. We hope 
you enjoy what we have to offer 


Welcome back to the wonder- 
ful world of Selinsgrove, Pa. Here 
we are, in the hot spot of the 
world, and ready for another fan- 
tastic year. Phi Mu Delta would 
like to welcome the class of '89 to 
the beginning of their college 
career. If some of you don't know 
it yet, we're located at 600 Univ. 
Ave., right across the street from 
the health center (which brother 
WAD will take complete advan- 
tage of). Come up and visit the 
Mudhouse and check out some of 
the improvements the brothers 
have made. 

The brothers would like to ex- 
tend a belated but happy 19th to 
brother Tim McCaffery. Next 
year well get a woman to jump 
out of the cake. Congratulations 
go to Scott on becoming the first 
AOW of the year. Although 
Lackawitz was a close second 
Litey stole the most votes. Don't 
worry Brucey I'm sure your time 
will come. Smoothly moving into 
week 2, Brother Dooey took the 
AOW award uncontested with, 
"something to do with science." 

Congratulations and Welcome 
to all our new little sisters who 
became inducted last week. We 
guarantee a very ballsy time for 
all. P.S. The D does not really 
mean Dooey. To the veteran little 
sisters— we haven't forgotten 
you, stop by. 

If you didn't see it, the Sunday 
before classes started Bill Calvert 
and Kevin "Y.T." McCaffery 
went down to Harrisburg and 
were on T.V. They presented a 
check from Phi Mu Delta to the 

M.S. Foundation for $801 .00 and 
we have it on tape (audio, 
though). This money was raised 
last spring during a tag day and 
we're damn proud of how it 
turned out! If anyone would like 
to know what a tag day is I'm 
sure Whitey will kindly tell you. 
The Luck of the Irish to ya, 

We're looking forward to our 
bar-b-que with Alpha Delta Pi 
tomorrow. Come prepared girls 
because "THE CHAIR" is still in 
good shape and is awaiting your 
faces. Also, even though we don't 
have a white truck with bells, 
well still be around Tuesday 
nights with our cool treats. After 
all we do have such delicious 
treats as ice cream sangies, fudge 
bars, and the world reknown 
brown cow. 

That's it for now except for 
any men interested in Phi Mu 
Delta should come up to the 
house and show the brothers that 
you are interested in us. 

We are looking forward to get 
together with our little sisters on 
Friday night. Be ready for an ex- 
citing and titilating time. On a 
more serious note, the GIANTS 
are now 1-1 after two weeks. 
They are going to the bowl. 

Dooey & Pumpkin 


Welcome back!! It's been a 
hard three weeks of partying, and 
this weekend will be no excep- 
tion. The Bunders will be road- 
tripping to Lycoming to watch 
SU get its first win. We would 
also like to welcome back Pete 
Stoma who took his summer 
vacation at the Coast Guard 

This past weekend began with 
the return of King Sausage at the 
inaugural 8 am pre-football game 
party. The festivities included 
Marino's motocross and ended 
with a party with Sigma Kappa. 
Next week's party will include a 
roast beef dinner with the out of - 
house brothers (on them). In 
spite of all this fun, Brother Bentz 
has decided to enroll in weekend 
classes at Penn State. 

We are happy to announce 
that Dave Roe is recovering nice- 
ly from the shark bite he received 
while trying to save a drowning 
boy off the coast of Rhode Island. 

Finally, we would like to thank 
Theta Chi for the gift they 
donated for our party this 
weekend. Seriously guys, the 
check is in the mail. 
P.S. Ray, the bathroom is three 
doors down on the left. 



EVERYONE! The Sisters of 
Sigma Kappa would also like to 
welcome the Class of '89 to SU! 
We wish everyone the best year 
yet! While we're doing the 
welcoming scene, it's great to see 
Liz Heim and Sharon Anderson 
back with us for the semester. 

We would like to thank the 
brothers of Sig Ep for sharing the 
outrageous pre-party with us a 
couple of weekends ago and 
thanks to Lambda for our party 
together this past Friday. Leave it 
to Dana to break the ice with bar- 
top dancing - that's the spirit! The 
Sigmas have a lot of plans in the 

making so you can be sure you'll 
be seeing our pride shining 

A special congratulations goes 
out to sister Diana Nolle who was 
pinned this summer to Sigma Phi 
Epsilon graduate brother Scott 
Deitch. We are all very happy for 
you, Di! More congratulations go 
out to those sisters who earned a 
3.0 or above last term: 16 of us. 
Of course we all know that Sue 
Franchi is a very modest girl, so I 
would like to do the honor of an- 
nouncing that, yes, she not only 
has a 4.0 GPA but she is also 
academically ranked #1 in the en- 
tire junior class. Sister Linda 
Lamberti is right up there too at 
#18. We are very proud of you 
both! How 'bout that solid gold 
"1" sitting on your desk Sue?! 

Sue Stanitski you look like 
you're having the time of your 
life these days, always smiling!! 
Sue is our pledge and she's doing 
a fantastic job of showing what it 
means to be part of Sigma Kappa. 
Having 50 of your friends get up 
to have breakfast with you is 
great, right Sue?! 

Birthday wishes go out to Pat- 
ty House who finally reached 
that magical age on the 1st of 
September and Gretchen Lincoln 
who celebrated hers this past 
Wednesday. Best of luck to our 
field hockey, volleyball and soc- 
cer players in their seasons. 

Much more to follow in the 
weeks ahead, and until your eyes 
meet Sigma print again RR _ 


Welcome back upperclassmen 
and welcome to the freshman 
class, we hope to make your stay 
a pleasant one; so this is college. 
The first few weekends sent the 
parties outside, and once again 
Theta Chi's outdoor wonderland 
and balcony proved to be the 
place to be. Now with the cooler 
weather, we will be your gracious 
hosts for many more wild 
weekends in our brand spankin' 
new, space age designed bar 
room! (many thanks to Darren, 
Hawkins, Clay, Shep, and 

We'd like to congratulate Phi 
Mu on their great little sister 
turnout, but we believe in quality 
not necessarily quantity. We'd 
also like to thank KD for asking 
us to have their initiation party 
and thanks for cleaning up, it was 
a great time and we look forward 
to more such festivals! This 
weekend SU can expect more ac- 
tion at the chalet de Theta. We'd 
also like to announce that we will 
be on the road to support the SU 
football team as they hopefully 
waffle Lyco. While on the note of 
football, the Cowboys are 
chunkers, need I say more. Next 
Monday night we are looking for- 
ward to a Monday night informal 
rush football gathering. 

On a final and serious note, we 
are extremely excited and happy 
to announce that brother Pete 
McQuaid has won his battle 
against cancer. Thats all for this 
week, be sure to understand what 
you should have learned. Bombs 
away, and remember the night 
time is the right time. 

WQSU - SU's Own 

Friday, September 20, 1985-THE CRUSADER-Page 5 

It looks as though music has 
found a home here at SU. Not 
only in Heilman Hall but also at 
WQSU, SU's AM/FM radio sta- 

To the average person in the 
Susquehanna Valley, WQSU is 
synonymous with album rock. 
Perhaps rightly so, since album 
rock receives the most air time of 
all the music played at WQSU. 
There are, however, other kinds 
of music played at WQSU. In 
fact, probably no other college 
* station in Pennsylvania can 
match the variety that we offer. 

The station is operated by 25 
FM disc-jockeys under the ad- 
ministrative direction of Larry 


Welcome back, it's good to be 
in print again. Many activities 
have occurred at the old Sig Ep 

"slum." We had a bang-up open- 
ing weekend thanks to all the in- 
terested Freshman men and 

f women. 

Opening congratulatory 
remarks must go out to Herb for 
his deep sea acquisition the first 
day, or should we say "night," 
back. Also a heart felt welcome 
goes out to our three new transfer 
brothers from down under, Alick, 
Elmo, and Otis. 

Also congratulations must go 
out to all our little sisters. 
Welcome aboard, ladies. These 
next few weeks will be... in- 
We are also proud of Brothers 

> Smith and Chamberlin who suc- 
cessfully graduated from the 
Steve Cook bus diving school 
with "flying colors." Some of us 
would like to voice our dissap- 
pointment to the Lucky Whip 
company. Eric and Craig are still 
upset about not thumbing it to 

1 Philly to see Neil. 

In closing, the Brothers would 

like to thank the sisters of Kappa 

Delta for a great pre-beach party. 

Until next week... 

The Slummers 


Hello everyone! I hope 
everyones' summer went as well 
as mine. The Zeta's are looking 
forward to a great year. 

Congratulations to ZETA for 
getting the highest GPA for last 
term. Keep up the good work, 
^ girls! 

Last week the Zeta's had Infor- 
mal Rush. We had a great time 
and we hope you did also. We 
picked up five new pledges. Con- 
gratulations to: Karen "Buff 
Walters, Lisa Grover, Bonnie 
Herb, Sharon Ward and, Susan 

* Porter. Get psyched and 
remember to wear your pledge 

This past weekend we had our 
first retreat. We would like to 
thank Dr. Futhey for the use of 
his farm. The Zeta's are now 

* closer than ever, and we are 
preparing for our initiation and 
installment- sometime this 
semester. We had a great time 
getting rid of our worries thanks 
to Denise and her balloons. 
Maybe next time they'll float 
without some extra effort! 

Well girls keep practicing your 
songs for our lock-in that's 
coming up soon! See you next 

In ZETA love, 


Augustine (general manager) and 
Joe Muscato (station manager). 
Students play a key role in the 
operations of the station. 

Deb Wiley, FM music director, 
is responsible for all music-related 
decisions. Yolanda Robbins, who 
kept the station alive this sum- 
mer, serves as operations 
manager in charge of all person- 
nel. Andy Zimmerman is the 
news director, and Steve Paradies 
is production manager. These 
people insure the smooth opera- 
tion of PA's second ranked col- 
lege station (behind Penn State). 

So, now you know who does 
what. WQSU is the most power- 
ful station in Pennsylvania (in the 
top ten power stations on the east 
coast for colleges). Its 12,000 
watts approaches that of many 
major city stations. 

The variety of experiences 
possible for the 35 students now 
in FM training along with the 25 
veterans gives them a noticeable 
edge in job placement. Former 
WQSU people are now in large 
market areas such as Baltimore, 
Scranton, and Philadelphia. 

Some of the shows that you, 
the discerning connoisseur of 
music, may want to hear are 
Album Rock (nightly), Chart 
Rock (afternoons), classical 
(mornings), Christian rock (Sun- 
days), and country music (Satur- 
days). There is also a morning 
talk show, "The Morning 
Magazine," which is on every 
weekday morning. 

One way that you can get in- 
volved (such a dreaded word) is 

Worship Service 

first, just listen! Your support is 
very valuable and besides, if you 
make a request, they will, within 
reason, play it. 

If you're interested in doing 
some radio related things, just 
contact Joe Muscato at his sta- 
tion office. In the meantime, if 
you're already a listener, thanks 
and keep on listening. If not, try 
out WQSU, it's truly something 
SU can be proud of.

As part of the Inauguration 
weekend, a special University 
Chapel Service will be held on 
Sunday, Sept. 29. The service 
begins at 10:30 a.m. in Weber 
Chapel Auditorium. The service 
will be shared with Sharon 
Lutheran Church of Selinsgrove, 
Dr. Cunningham's home con- 

The service will be presided 
over bv the Rev. Dr. E. Raymond 

Shaheen, our very own interim 
• chaplain. The homilist is the Rev. 
Dr. Herman G. Stuempfle Jr., 
president of the Lutheran 
Theological Seminary at Get- 
tysburg. Lastly, The Rev. Albert 
H. Heusmann, pastor of the 
Sharon Lutheran Church, will be 
the celebrant. 

Immediately following the ser 
vice, there will be an Inaugural 
Luncheon held in the Evert Din- 
ing Room. 

Study African Style 

Upon returning for my senior 
year here at Susquehanna, I was 
asked how my experience in 
Africa was. If I were to use one 
word, which is entirely too con- 
fining to fully capture the ex- 
perience, it would be 

Ironically enough, one can ex- 
perience culture shock without 
knowing it. Although overt 
Western materialism does stick 
out in the minds of everyone who 
went on the program as an ob- 
vious result of the experience, it is 
the intangible feelings of 
loneliness that nobody will ever 
truly understand what you ex- 
perienced, except those who have 
had the insight to study in the 
third world, that results in this 
subtle culture shock I am speak-

ing of. Explaining the African ex- 
perience is like asking a tradi- 
tional African to critique his 
culture in comparison to Western 
culture. My point is that it's im- 
possible to describe or critique 
unless the party you are speaking 
to is in close contact with the 
ideas you are attempting to ex- 

Because I could easily fill this 
newspaper from cover to cover of 
descriptions of "African ex- 
periences" I will hold off for now. 
The intent of this article is to en- 
courage students at Susquehanna 
to study abroad in an environ- 
ment that will provide stimulus 

for education without having to 
force it on them. I would en- 
courage anyone with even the 
smallest amount of interest in the 
"Semester in Liberia Program" to 
come to Mellon Lounge in the 
Campus Center on Sunday, 
September 22 at 1 1 a.m. for an in-

The Phenolumn 

Joffrey II Dancers 

(Continued from page 2) 

What causes Van Winkle's 
Syndrome? In most cases, a crisis 
is caused by the victim's removal 
of himself from the stream of 
consciousness of a class. In other 
words, if you let yourself forget 
how to follow the "flow" of a 
class, even for just a minute, you 
will kick yourself out of the direc- 
tion that the teacher is going and 
will probably become disoriented, 
confused, and lost. The situation 
is the same as in a downhill bicy- 
cle race. If you are coasting along 
with the rest of the class at thirty 
miles an hour, then everything is 
fine and it is easy to keep moving 
ahead. But if you let yourself go 
astray at the wrong time (i.e. 
when a new topic is being 
presented) you will wind up hit- 
ting a tree, getting a flat, or get- 
ting stuck in mud and likewise 
stopping. Wave goodbye to the 
class! Getting yourself back into 
the momentum of coasting 
downhill at their speed (or learn- 
ing at their rate) takes a good deal 
of extra work. A crisis is 
synonymous with getting 
sidetracked, losing control of the 
wheel, and crashing. But a crisis 
is not simply "getting behind"; if 
momentum is defined as "the 

ability to stay on top of class", 
then simply getting behind over a 
period of days is like letting your 
momentum rot, while a V.W. 
Crisis is like having it suddenly 

There is no cure. Only you can 
prevent Van Winkle's Syndrome 
by not allowing your mentality 
to slip from the track that the rest 
of the class is following. You 
may go to the bathroom. You 
may be late. You may even fall 
asleep. But you can't forget how 
to recoup. 

There is help. To finance 
research against this colossal 
phenomena, send your donation 
in unmarked bills to "The Help 
In Eliminating VanWinkles 
Eventually Society" (THIEVES) 
c/o Doug Chamberlin Box 431 
Susqu. Univ. The national 
counselling group "Van Winkle 
Burdened Unification Society" 
(V.W.BUS) intends to move into 
the area also. 

You cannot escape the syn- 
drome. You can only try to avoid 
a crisis by remaining alert... 
Either that or you can abstain 
from sleeping, doodling, being 
late, talking in class, and using 
the bathroom when you want to. 

Talk about a crisis! 

The presentation of 'Tales 
from Hans Christian Andersen" 
by the Joffrey II Dancers will be 
held in the Weber Chapel 
Auditorium on Saturday, 
September 28 at 8 pm. The com- 
pany's first full-length production 
includes "The Little Mermaid," 
in two acts, and "The 
Nightingale." The Susquehanna 
University Artist Series Commit- 
tee, made-up of four faculty 
members and six students, de- 
cided that the ballet company, 
would be greatly enjoyed by the 

The tender love story of "The 
Nightingale" tells of a dis- 
illusioned emperor drawn to the 
nightingale by her sweet song. 
The enchanting tale of "The Lit- 
tle Mermaid" is about a lonely 
mermaid who saves a handsome 
prince and then trys to win his 
love. Both stsories are set to the 
music of Edward Elger. 
Choreography was created by 
Donald Mahler, director of the 
Metropolitan Opera Ballet.

Communications Improve 

Do you want to have a 
telephone in your room? What 
about a personal computer that 
can communicate with any other 
personal computer, either on 
campus, or for that matter, 
anywhere in the outside world? 
All of these things will be possible 
within the next year. 

Frank Richards, Director of 
the Computer Center, is directing 
the system installation. Mr. 
Richards led the two year study 
of integrated voice and data net- 
works that culminated with the 
purchase of the AT&T system. 
Mr. Richard states, "We 
recognized that our telephone 
costs were going to rise 
dramatically and we were in an 
untenable position where we 
couldn't expand our existing 
leased system." 

In the past two years, over 75 
personal computers for faculty, 
staff, and student use have been 
installed. Students are already 
beginning to buy their own per- 

sonal computers for use in their 
dorm rooms. The next step is to 
interconnect all of these com- 
puters and enable our users to 
communicate with each other. 

The telecommunications 
systems will consist of two 
AT&T System 75, Private 
Automated Branch Exchange 
(ABX), voice switches, and an In- 
formation System Network (ISN) 
packet data switch. One System 
75 will serve the faculty and ad- 
ministrative staff, and the other 
will be dedicated to student ser- 
vice. The ISN will interconnect 
all data users with each other and 
with all centralized university 
computer equipment. 

The network will allow 
students who pay a network 
subscription fee, faculty, and 
staff members to simultaneously 
communicate by voice and 
transmit or receive data on any 
AT&T or IBM compatible per- 
sonal computer without using a 
modem — a coupling device that 
is used with a telephone to 
transmit information over con-

of Market and Mill Streets. 

ventional telephone lines. 

Every office, selected 
classrooms, and all university 
owned student residence rooms 
will be equipped with a modular 
double jack, one position for 
voice and one for data. 

The phases of the installation 

of the new phone and Computer 
Network are beginning now. 
Phase I will be completed in 
January 1986, and the other 
phase will be completed as more 
funds becomes available. Phase I 
includes things such as, data and 
telephone jacks in all rooms and 
office; the beginning of a campus- 
wide computer network with 
Seibert Hall, Selinsgrove Hall, 
and the Micro Lab in the Blough 
Learning Center; ability to pass 
files between personal computers, 
share printers among PC users; 
and have access to electronic mail 
system. Also, student residence 
phone service for students who 
provide their own phone and pay 
$24 per term (per room). This fee 
will permit on-campus and local 
calls at no charge, and long 
distance collect and credit calls. 
Phase II, planned for the fall of 
1986, will enable student to have 
direct long distance dialing at the 
cheapest available external rate. 
Students will be able to dial direct 
long distance and receive a 
monthly bill from the university. 
Sound interesting? If you want 
to order a phone or com- 
municating personal computer in 
your room, the Telecommunica- 
tions System Administrator 
(TSA) will be taking orders at 
registration for Term II. When 
you pay the subscription fee of 
$24, the TSA will assign an ex- 
tension number and activate the 
room jack from the System Ad- 
ministrator Terminal. The stu- 
dent will then be able to receive 
phone calls off campus by direct 
in-dial. Personal computer users 
who will want to connect to the 
computer network will require an 
interface unit called the Asyn- 
cronous Data Unit (ADU). 

$4800. SU can present these four- 
teen, seven men and seven 
women, dancers along with their 
administrative and technical staff 
of five. Although all are from the 
United States, they, like their 
predecessors, may eventually join 
one of the 35 professional dance 
companies claiming Joffrey II 
Dancers or the Joffrey Ballet. 
The dancers, who range in age 
from 16 to 22, are based in New 
York and Los Angelos under the 
direction of Richard Englund.

New Faces 

Anyone looking around cam- 
pus this fall will see plenty of new 
faces. But this time, freshman, 
we're not talking about you. 
Most of us have noticed, 
however, many unfamiliar faces 
among the faculty of Susquehan- 
na. All together, twenty new 
faculty members have joined the 
Susquehanna community, both 
in teaching and administration. 
In addition to these twenty newly 
filled positions, there have been 
several promotions among the 
existing staff. 

With the departure of L.D. 
Newman, Gary Smith has been 
promoted to Director of 
Residence Life, with Carol A. 
Courtney appointed as his assis- 
tant. Pamela White has been pro- 
moted from director of Admis- 
sions to Dean of Academic Ser- 
vices. Her position has been filled 
by J. Richard Ziegler, a 10- year 
admissions veteran from Phillips 
University in Oklahoma. The 
new admissions counselor is Jen- 
nifer C. Schoen. Alex Smith has 
also been promoted from director 
of continuing education to new 

Among the new staff, in addi- 
tion to the interim Chaplain, 
Rev. Shaheen, is Alan F. 
Kreisler, the new director of 
counseling, who will be arriving 
by Oct. 1. 

Susquehanna also welcomes 
back several alumni to its staff. 
Pamela G. Reiser, class of 83, has 
been appointed Assistant Direc- 
tor of Career Development. 
From the class of 85, John H. 
Thalheimer is the Chapel 
Auditorium Manager, and Scott 
Deitch is the new Sports Informa- 
tion Coordinator. 

The Physical Education De- 
partment is joined by both 
William Rees, the new head foot- 
ball coach, and Debora K. Fore, 
the new head softball and 
volleyball coach. 

The teaching faculty itself 
welcomes ten new members, 
spanning several departments. 
Dr. Beverly V. Romberger is a 
new assistant professor of speech 
and communications. Ms. Lynne 
Porter is an instructor of com- 

pany to SU, feels it will be "one of 
the better performances of the 
year." For better quality, the Ar- 
tist Series Committee has 
trimmed its series down from 
eight to six different perfor- 
mances this year. If you would 
like to buy tickets for this big 
event on homecoming weekend, 
you may order by calling the Sus- 
quehanna University Campus 
box office at 474-0101 between 
noon and 6 pm. during the 
weekdays. Tickets are $9 for 
adults and $4 for non-SU

munications and theatre arts 
specializing in scene design and 
scene and prop construction. 

Dr. Jack Kolbert, an interna 
tionally renowned scholar of 
French literary criticism and 
French modern literature, takes 
over as a professor of modern 
languages and head of the depart- 
ment. He is joined in the foreign 
languages by Dr. Marco-Antonio 
Loera as a Viliting Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Spanish. Loera holds a 
doctorate in romance languages 
and literature from Harvard, and 
is studying the Mexican contribu- 
tion to our Western Culture. Lin- 
da Rader Slocum also joins the 
faculty as a lecturer in German. 
Dr. Charlotte Gross is a new 
assistant professor of English. 
Gross specializes in medieval 

The mathematics department 
is joined by Rebecca Meiser, a 
visiting instructor of 
Mathematical Sciences. 

Lecturer C. Scott Smith joins 
the School of Music. Smith will 
also lead the marching band here 
at Susquehanna. 

The School of Business 
welcomes Edward S. Schwan as 
professor of Accounting, and 
Willy Sellekaerts as professor of 
economics. Dr. Sellekaerts comes 
to us from Central Michigan 

So what makes people like this 
come to Susquehanna? Dr. 
Charlotte Gross finds the 
"country" a nice change from 
New York City, where she had 
been residing. Dr. Edward 
Schwan was attracted to the 
quality liberal arts education Sus 
quehanna offers and is "pleased 
with the opportunity to combine 
the technical aspects of accoun- 
ting with the liberal arts educa 

A general satisfaction with 
their choice of Susquehanna 
seems to be expressed by many of 
the new faculty, as stated by Dr. 
Loera: "I look upon Selinsgrove 
as a worthwhile experience. I ex- 
pect it to be a pleasant one. So 
far, the students have not disap 
pointed me, and my colleagues 
have been gracious." 


Good question- 
Now how would you like it if everywhere you went you were 
constantly identified by your brother's name — as though you 
could never quite stand alone? Good question, really, since any 
number of us may stand in somebody else's shadow. How does 
one handle this sort of thing? A chap by the name of Andrew 
had to contend with this. And you know what?, never once did 
it drive him to a psychiatrist's couch. Our Chaplain will be talk 
ing about Andrew this Sunday at eleven in Weber Chapel; it will 
be the second in a series of Chapel Talks on 
WHATABUNCHOFCHARACTERS. There's plenty of room 
for you to come — here's hoping you can make it. OK?

Trimesters vs. Semesters 

Carolanne Rogers - The 
change to semesters allows more 
time for extra activities such as 
clubs and sports. 

Doug Yago - The semesters 
will give everyone more time to 
get into their major. 

Kim Gormley - The change 
to semesters has allowed a lot of 
students to take extra classes of 
interest, and possibly pick up a' 
double emphasis. 

Dave Stanton - I like the 
i semester schedule better than 
trimesters although it takes get- 
ting used to. With semesters, it 
seems as if there is less work to 

Mark Thorsheim - So far I 
like having semesters. I have 
more time in between classes to 
get my work finished and play 


As any upperclassman can 
relate, Susquehanna's change 
from the trimester system to the 
semester system has made a great 
difference. Not only has the en- 
tire system of classes changed, 
with more classes scheduled in 
seemingly odd time slot, but also 
the system has introduced several 
new terms and ideas as well. 

One of the newly used terms, 
semester hour, is not all that new. 
Although in the past students 
usually added up their credits in 
terms of courses taken, semester 
hours had been assigned to each 

course. All courses, however, 
were assigned the same number 
of semester hours - 3.5 semester 
hours, no matter the level of the 
academic course. Thus, the 

number of semester hours 
cancelled out in the figuring of a 
cumulative grade point average. 

Kevin Finch - The new 
schedule takes getting used to. It 
seems as if there is more work to 
do in a shorter time period. 

Under the new semester 
system, courses are, in effect, 
weighted. Each course in a given 
subject has been assigned a cer- 
tain number of semester hours by 
the department head. The value 
ranges from one to eight semester 
hours depending on the intensity 
of the course. 

This system of differing 
semester hours also results in a 
change in the appearance of the 
cumulative grade point average. 
Although it will be figured in the 
same manner, the weighting of 
certain classes could result in a 
grade point average that would 
be different than in previous 


The best way to illustrate this 
change is in an example using 
three classes to show the dif- 

Steve Ajello and Bob 
McGuire - There is more time in 
between tests, so everything isn't 
crammed into 1 or 2 weeks. 

Mr. Pamental - I like 
semesters. I have worked on 
semesters before, and they seem 
less frantic. There is more time 
for extra class activities.

Thus the new system results in 
a difference in the grade point 
average. This will first be 
demonstrated when the mid-term 
grades are sent out this semester. 
Grades will be reported only to 
the student and to Student Life 
unless parents specifically request 
a report. 

Teachers say that there is more 
time in the semesters so more 
work can be covered in class, yet 
the work load is the same. 

Who's That? 

You see that man wearing the 
hood and carrying a stick, but 
who is he, really? And what role 
does he play in inauguration? 


The man is actually Dr. Neil 
Potter, professor of chemistry, 
and his real title is the 
"Marshall." He is the leading 
escort of the president of SU and 
the platform party at events such 
as convocation, and the upcom- 
ing inauguration. But his job does 
not end there. He is the one who 
makes sure that people in the pro- 
cession get in and out in an order- 
ly fashion, he puts the program 
together, and tells the procession 
where to sit. He also tries to solve 
any problems which might arise 
during the ceremony. 

The Marshall's attire also has 
some significance. He, like the 
President, wears a maroon 
University gown. His hood, 
which is blue and white, signifies 
what degree was attained, in 
what discipline, and where he 
graduated. The marshall also car- 
ries the University Mace, made of 
gold and silver, which has the 
University seal on it. 

So if you were ever wondering 
who that strangely dressed man 
was at SU formal ceremonies, 
now you know! 



"... and wasn't it Archbishop 
William Temple who brought 
a lot of people up short by his 
simple statement: *God has 
other things in which He is in- 
terested beside religion' ..."

Dr. Eberhard Zgraja from the 
University of Konstanz in Ger- 
many will be on campus next 
week, on September 24 and 25. 

Since 1981, Susquehanna has 
had an exchange agreement with 
Konstanz whereby the two in- 
stitutions send students to each 
other's campus for a semester or 
year. Susquehanna students need 
to have a good command of Ger- 
man before starting classes at 
Konstanz. Likewise, the German 
students who come here need a 
command of English sufficient to 
take courses at Susquehanna. 

In the 1984-85 academic year, 
Susquehanna students who 
studied at Konstanz and are now 
back on campus, include Diann 
Doelp, Caroline Cueman, 
Elizabeth Heim, Howard Letts, 
and Tom von Hillebrandt. SU 
students going to Konstanz in 
1985-86 include Paul Cooper, 
John Snyder, and Tracy Won- 

Two Konstanz students study- 
ing here at Susquehanna this year 
are Ann Katherine Weber and 
Baerbel Schwartzer. 

If you wish to speak with Dr. 
Zgraja about study opportunities 
at Konstanz during his campus 
visit here next Tuesday and 
Wednesday, please call Dr. 
Reuning at ext. 1 55 or stop by his 
office in 204D Bogar Hall.

Last year, the Susquehanna 
University field hockey team had 
quite a successful season, 
finishing out 9 - 3, and breaking 
many school records. Well, the 
sticklers are at it again. To start 
off, there are nine returning let- 
terwinners, who are anxious to 
get under way. "I feel that we 
have a team that will be strong 
contenders for a leading spot in 
league standings" reports the 
very optimistic Coach Connie 

Offensively, Megan Moyer, 
Felicia McClymont, Jean Flaher- 
ty and Liz Kelly are working 
together to set up the goals. 
Moyer, McClymont and Flaher- 
ty were tied in total points for the 
season showing a balanced for- 
ward line. Liz Kelly, sophomore, 
has been working hard in the 
preseason and is adjusting well to 
the style of the upperclassmen. 
Coach Delbaugh also feels that 
Diane Meyers, sophomore, has 
made a good switch to the right 
wing position. 

Returning in the mid-field are 
sophomore, Sarah Reynolds and 
junior, M.J. McLaughlin. Back- 
ing up the mid-field are letter win- 
ners Michelle Bardman, senior 
captain, and Sue "Tater" Bailey, 
sophomore. Defensively, they 
have their work cut out for them. 
Replacing graduate Lynn 
Reinhagen is sophomore, Candy 
Lain. All three halfbacks can rely 
on sweeper, Ruth Jones for direc- 
tion. In the goal, a most crucial 
position, Brenda Dersham and 
Tammy Hamad have been train- 
ing diligently to keep the op- 
ponents scoreless. 

Other members of the Lady 
Crusaders field hockey team are 
sophomores Joanie Book and 
Wendy Goodspeed. The new 
faces are freshmen Kathy Ander- 
son, Tammy Harnad, Heidi 
Perry, Beth Roland, Karen 
Scotchlas, Donna DeGennero, 
Liz Dawson, Sue Dobzanski and 
last but not least Holly "LD" 

All in all, the Lady Crusaders 
are ready and waiting to open up 
at home this Saturday (11 am) 
against Lycoming. So, why don't 
you check it out!?! And in the 
words of Builla, "The kids are 
lookin' good!" 


SU Tromps 

Susquehanna men's soccer 
team defeated Lebanon Valley 
6-0 on Saturday, Sept. 14 in their 
season opener. The game was 
scoreless until 28:30 into the first 
period when Paul Brady, assisted 
by Chris Boehm, scored Sus- 
quehanna's first goal. Three and 
a half minutes later, Tim Kinsella 
scored the last goal in the first 
period, with Boehm picking up 
his second assist. After 7:30 Erik 
Rank started the second period 
scoring with a goal, unassisted. 
Then, after 17 and a half minutes 
of scoreless action the Crusders 
scored three goals in just two 
minutes. Kirk Yoggy scored first, 
assisted by Jay Copeland, at the 
25:00 mark, then just a minute 
later Mark Thorsheim netted the 
fifth goal of the game. At 27:00 
Bill Muellar, who was assisted by 
Paul Joslyn, scored the final goal 
of the game. Susquehanna's 
goalies, Rob Ancipiuk and Paul 
Rybecky, had plenty of time to 
rest as Lebanon Valley only had 
four shots on goal. In contrast, 
the Crusader offense kept 
Lebanon Valley's goalie busy 
with 25 shots on goal. Sus- 
quehanna also out-numbered 
Lebanon Valley in corners 13-1. 
Come out to the next game and 
support the team! 

Cunningham and Messerli Leaving Game 

Thrown For a Loss 

The Susquehanna Crusaders 
suffered a 30-7 loss to 
Muhlenberg College last Satur- 
day in its season opener. The 
defeat was Susquehanna's worst 
since a 42-6 loss to Franklin and 
Marshall college in 1980. It was 
the Crusader's biggest opening 
day defeat since 1978 when 
Johns Hopkins shut out SU 30-0. 

Lady Crusader Debut 

The 1985 Susquehanna 
woman's volleyball season began 
on the weekend of Sept. 13-14 at 
Mansfield University. The Lady 
Crusaders were participating in 
the Mansfield Tournament 
against bigger schools such as: St. 
Bonnaventure, Buffalo, Gannon, 
and division HI nationally ranked 
Juniata. In game one of the first 
match, Susquehanna faced St. 
Bonnaventure and won easily: 
15-5. In game two, the Lady 
Crusaders came close to winning 
both the game and match, but 
dropped a 16-14 decision. This 
took some air out of the Lady 
Netter's sails as they dropped the 
last game, 15-2. Standing out for 
Susquehanna in this match were 
Barb Weigle, Allison Shepard, 
and Alice Brown. The trio com- 
bined for 25 service points and a 
97.7% success ratio. Shepard, 
Brown, and Kris Hawhuth were 
the top hitters, combining for 13 
kills. Susquehanna's next op- 
ponent was Buffalo. The Lady 
Crusaders dropped the match in

Poster Policy 

Because of the recent problem 
concerning poster hanging in the 
campus center, posting policy 
rules should be observed more 
carefully. The incident involved 
want ad posters hung with glue. 
This was done in obvious places 
where paint could have been 
taken off. 

The posting policies of SU state 
that all posting must be done on 
bulletin boards or any perforated 
surfaces rather than on hard 
painted surface walls, such as the 
doors whWi lead into the Cam- 
pus Center. Try to avoid posting 
on glass or the wood of the 
cafeteria doors. On plaster, tape is 

Crusader head coach William 
"Rocky" Rees was stunned by 
the loss to Muhlenberg. 'The 
players and staff took the defeat 
very hard," Rees said after his 
collegiate head coaching debut. 
"We thought we were better 
prepared to play a much better 

"Offensively we never got it 
together. We did not execute as 
well as we did in our scrimmage 
against Johns Hopkins," added 
Rees. Susquehanna gained just 
85 yards rushing and 240 yards 
total offense. The Crusaders were 
held to 69 yards in the second 

Defensively, SU held the 
Mules to just 1 points in the first 
three quarters, but surrendered 
three fourth-quarter touchdowns. 

The Crusader defense was led 
by junior end David Kells of 
Phoenixville, PA, with 1 1 tackles 
and sophomore Brian Quiggle of 
Towanda, PA, with 10 tackles.

fine, but tacks and glue are pro- 
hibited. Posting on game room or 
snack bar walls also causes 
problems since these walls were 
painted by a designer, and they 
are hard to get repainted. Fur- 
thermore, words such as "beer," 
"brew," "draft," and "alcoholic 
beverages" are prohibited to be 
used on campus solicitation. 

These rules concerning poster 
hanging should be observed by 
all. Also take note that certain 
buildings on campus require a 
stamp of approval on written 
publications before posting. Con- 
tact the Campus Center office for 
more details.

Acts 29 

Have you ever read the 29th 
chapter of Acts in the New Testa 
ment? If so, you must have a 
unique Bible, because the book of 
Acts ends at Chapter 28. Or does 

Acts 29 is an on-going ministry 
idea that started with a Sus- 
quehanna student six years ago. 
This student, Bill Weiser, saw all 
the financial and personal sup- 
port that the Lutheran church 
had given Susquehanna, and he 

thought it would be nice to show 
the school's gratitude in a special 
way. Thus Acts 29 was born. Dif- 
ferent groups of students got 
together and formed teams, each 
with a different type of ministry. 
These teams then traveled to 
Lutheran churches in the area to 
give them a very unique and per- 
sonal thank-you for all their sup- 

Acts 29 has grown since that 
time. Last year, over a dozen 
teams traveled to almost 60 
churches. This year, the demand 
for teams has increased even 
more. Calls are already coming 
from churches that are asking to 
host teams. 

But what exactly is a team? 
What does it do? A team is a 
group of people who share the 
desire to minister to others, meet 
new people, and travel to new 
places. Some teams sing, other 
teams act, or do puppetry, or per 
form mime, or do supply 

preaching. Some do a combina 
tion of these things. When a team 
forms, they usually go out a max 
imum of four times: on 
November 10, November 17, 
February 2, and April 6, to places 
as close as Sunbury or as far 
away as Johnstown. 

When talking to people who 
have been on Acts 29 teams, the 
things they like best seem to be 
the fellowship with other 
students and the opportunity to 
reach out beyond the walls of 
Susquehanna University. That 

sentiment is summed up in the 
name of the program. In the book 
of Acts, the disciples of Christ are 
reaching out to share their good 
news with others, and at the same 
time, becoming closer to one 
another by working together. 
The book of Acts has not ended. 
We are writing the next chapter 
of our deeds for the Lord: ACTS 

There will be an informational 
meeting about ACTS 29 on Sun 
day, September 22, at 7 pm in the 
Horn Meditation Chapel. If 
you're interested, please stop by.

may have, call Brenda Tice

Inauguration 1985 

The Tragedy of 
South Africa 

ARA Busy 

Students and faculty are not 
the only people busy in prepara- 
tion for this weekend's Inaugural 
festivities. Working behind the 
scenes, and seldom appreciated, 
are the people who are trying to 
clean up the campus, and prepare 
for and feed the thousands of 
people who will inundate the 
campus this weekend. Everyone 
wants the school to look good as 
it faces one of the most important 
and special Homecomings ever. 

The ARA has quite a busy 
weekend planned, beginning with 
yesterday's dinner with the Presi- 
dent for all students in the 
cafeteria. Several of the meals to 
be served this weekend will be 
held outside under tents. On Sun- 
day, two different meals, each for 

800 to 1 000 people, will be served 
simultaneously. Everts such as 
these require much careful plan- 
ning, extra help, and lots of food. 
Indeed, ARA has called in extra 
help from other units, and even 
from a local high school band. 
They have also had to borrow 
such necessities ranging from 
tables, chairs, china, and silver- 
ware, to creamers, sugar bowls, 
and salt and pepper shakers. A 
potentially bigger problem for the 
ARA personnel will be decipher- 
ing the ownership of each bor- 
rowed item.

auguration, the physical plant 
will be extremely busy caring for 
the grounds and the buildings. 
Their participation in the 
weekend is an important one and 
will give the crew plenty to do. 

David Henry, head of the 
physical plant, said that the 
repitious chore of setting up and 
taking down of chairs, as well as 
tents, will play a major role for 
his crew this weekend. He will 
have one employee from each 
area of the plant's services, on du- 
ty at all times, so that all unex- 
pected business will be attended 
to, or repaired, immediately. In 
the last meeting tomorrow, the 
final arrangements will be made. 
Usually on Homecoming week- 
end, the complete staff works 
Saturday and returns Monday to 
finish clean-up. However, the In- 
auguration compounds their 
work time. The appearance of the 
campus center and Weber Chapel 
Auditorium are most important, 
but the physical plant's concen- 
tration will be on the grounds. 

Take notice of the 
maintenance of the buildings and 
grounds as you enjoy a fun-filled 
weekend. Remember many hours 
went into making the University 
look great. 

Over the past year, racial 
disturbances in South Africa 
claiming over 700 lives have oc- 
cupied world headlines and 
focused even President Reagan's 
personal attention on the "apart- 
heid system" where distinction 
and segregation are based solely 
on race. In no country of the 
world has skin pigmentation been 
elevated to such heights of na- 
tional preoccupation. It has 
become the basis for the political 
system, for economic organiza- 
tion, and for all social policy. 
Race is a national obsession in 
South Africa which, in the name 
of an ultra-fundamentalistic 
brand of Calvinism, denies the 
common humanity of approx- 
imately 25 million Blacks, 4 l A 
million persons of European 
origin (mostly Dutch and 
English), 2 million Cape Coloreds 
of mixed racial descent, and 1 
million Asians (mostly Indian). 

While the vast majority of 
exiles who have left South Africa 
have been Black, the Susquehan- 
na community will be privileged 
next week to hear a speaker from 
the Indian community. He is Mr. 
Pat Naidoo who until last month 
was a young medical doctor on 

Changing Majors? 

Applications for a change of 
major to Accounting or Business 
Administration will be considered 
twice a year, during Fall and 
Spring Semesters. The decision 
on these applications will be 
made by the Internal Transfer 
Committee of the Sigmund Weis 
School of Business, in consulta- 
tion with the appropriate Depart- 
ment Head, and with the ap- 
proval of the Dean of Faculty. 

The criteria on which these 
decisions will be based are the 

1. The number of current Sus 
quehanna students allowed to 
transfer to majors in the Sigmund 
Weis School of Business is based 
on the number of students 
already enrolled as Business Ad- 
ministration and Accounting 
majors, the number of faculty 
members in these Departments, 
and the facilities available. 

2. Priority will be determined 
by cumulative grade point 

3. Any student with a 
cumulative grade point average 
of 3.0 or higher will be allowed to 
change to a major in Business 
Administration or Accounting 
subject only to Items 1 and 2 

4. A student with a cumulative 
grade point average below 3.0 
musuhave successfully completed 
at least two of the following 
courses prior to requesting a 
change to a major in the Sigmund 
Weis School of Business:

Application forms may be 
picked up from and returned to 
Mrs. Eleanor Heckman, Seibert 
Hall, Room 001, between 8:30

the staff of King Edward VIII 
hospital in Durban. He is 
associated with two banned 
political organizations, the 
African National Congress and 
the United Democratic Front. He 
will visit our campus on Thurs- 
day and Friday, October 3-4, and 
will be accompanied by his 
younger brother, Rajen, a senior 
engineering student at Swarth- 
more College. The two brothers 
will talk on the most recent tragic 
events in South Africa at an open 
forum to which the entire cam- 
pus is invited. This forum, under 
the sponsorship of the Interna- 
tional Club, will be held at 8 p.m. 
on Thursday evening, October 
3rd in Meeting Rooms 1 and 2 of 
the Campus Center. The two 
men will then talk in considerable 
detail about individual dual 
aspects of the apartheid system in 
various classes on Friday, Oc- 
tober 4th. Anyone is invited to at- 
tend these classes, as well. They 
are each being held in classrooms 
which have extra seating capaci- 
ty, so feel free to attend any ses- 
sion where the topic is of par- 
ticular interest to you. 

By way of presenting 
background information, the 
Media Center will show a 
number of its South Africa- 
related films for anyone wishing 
to become familiar with the 
fundamentals of apartheid. 

The schedule of events is as 
Tuesday, October 1 

Showing of the film "Last 
Grave at Dimbaza" which 
systematically and critically 
reviews all aspects of apartheid, 
including white South Africa's 
determination to preserve its 
basic system while making a few 
cosmetic changes. The film was 
made secretly in South Africa 
and smuggled out of the country 
in 1974. Bogar Hall 205 Media 
room, 4:15 to 5:15. 
Wednesday, October 2 

Showing of the Richard Atten- 
borough (videotape) "Gandhi." 
This epic film of a few years ago 
depicts Gandhi's 21 -year-long ef- 
fort in South Africa as a young 
lawyer (1893-1914) to organize 
the Indian community in the 
Durban area so as to more effec- 
tively pressure British colonial of- 
ficials for greater human rights.

Dear Editor: 

We, the Brothers of Phi Mu 
Delta, would like to address a 
comment made in the Theta Chi 
Fraternity Greek News article 
last week; specifically: "We'd like 
to congratulate Phi Mu on their 
great little sister turnout, but we 
believe in quality not necessarily 

We find this extremely low- 
class statement to be totally un- 
called for. This type of childish, 
immature remark is precisely 
what led to the temporary demise 
of Greek News last year. Frater- 
nities are supposed to be above 
this type of slander, which is why 
we have chosen to reply in this 
manner rather than in a foolish 
fashion through Greek News. 

Theta Chi's remark is not only 
an attack on Phi Mu Delta (Not 
Phi Mu, which any half-decently 
educated Greek would know is a 
national sorority unassociated 
with Phi Mu Delta), it is an at- 
tack on our Little Sister 
Organization. Their column is an 
insult to the prestigious Sus- 
quehanna Greek System as well. 

Last year, we at Phi Mu Delta 
revitalized our Little Sister Pro- 
gram with twenty-three Quality 
Little Sisters with whom we were 
extremely happy. This year, 
Theta Chi seems to be unhappy 
with the tables being turned and 
has come out fighting against our 
sixty-eight High Quality new Lit- 
tle Sisters. Perhaps it did not oc- 
cur to their brothers that there 
just might be more than twenty 
quality girls on campus. 

Theta Chi's obvious defense to 
this rebuttal is to claim that their 
Greek News is written by only 
one brother and his views may 

not always reflect the views of 
their entire brotherhood. The 
problem is: they must. Just as 
their Greek News writer reflects 
Theta Chi's pride in their new 
barroom, he reflects their jealous 
and immature view of Phi Mu 
Delta and our lovely Little 

Perhaps in the future the 
brothers of Theta Chi will get to 
know one another a little bit bet- 
ter; and therefore, keep any 
future mudslinging and ill feel- 
ings to a minimum.

What Avenue? 

A large majority of the Sus- 
quehanna students presently 
reside in a university residence 
building. These buildings often 
have maintenance problems and 
this is where the Physical Plant, 
commonly known by the 
students as the SU "Green 
Army," plays their utmost im- 
portant role. 

At this time, I'm not complete- 
ly informed on their performance 
in the dorms, but I am 
knowledgeable on their perfor- 
mance, or the lack of it, on the 
Avenue. You may wonder, 
"What Avenue? I know that is 
what goes through the minds of 
our physical plant employees. 

To inform you and the 
physical plant, there are 17 
houses along University Avenue 
that students live in. These 
houses are occupied by a com- 
bination of greek organizations 
and projects. These students 
share a very unique experience 
while living in a house, and I en-

joy living in a house very much. 
On the contrary, the Avenue 
residents also learn how to do 
most of their own maintenance 
work because it is very rare if you 
find a physical plant worker in 
your house. This is the second 
year I've lived in a university 
house and I have yet to see a per- 
son from the physical plant in my 
house, except Ella, our cleaning 
lady. The University did fix our 
bathroom floor over the summer, 
but only after work request upon 
work request and the loss of a 
couple brothers who fell through 
the hole in the floor when they 
stepped out of the shower. The 
amazing thing about the situation 
is that I pay the exact same 
amount of room and board as 
other students; especially those in 
Seibert, who when snap their 
fingers, have a physical plant 
employee in their room in five 

Last year I was a member of 
the Residence Life Staff and 
served as House Coordinator and 
I know how long it takes for a 
work request to be answered on 
the Avenue. And, I hope the 
physical plant does not get 
furious over this letter, but that 
they realize that we do pay room 
and board and we do deserve 
equal treatment. And while I 
have their attention, I would like 
to tell them that there is still a 
swarm of bees in our house and 
their can of Raid did not get rid 
of them. Please find the Avenue 
and give us equal attention and, if 
not, decrease our room and

Many local businesses support

Honeywell Contest 

Honeywell will launch its 
fourth annual Futurist Awards 
Competition Oct. 1 with an in- 
creased incentive for college 
students to enter— a $10,000 
grand prize. 

This year's contest, which asks 
college students to write essays 
about technological ad- 
vancements they foresee by the 
year 2010, will offer ten winners 
$2,000 and the chance to work 
for Honeywell next summer. For 
the first time, one of these will be 
chosen top winner and will 
receive an additional $8,000 for a 
total prize of $10,000. Last year 
600 students, representing 255 
colleges and universities nation- 
wide, entered the competition. 

The contest is open to all full- 
time students at any accredited 
college in the United States. 
Students are asked to leap ahead 
25 years and write essays pre- 
dicting developments in two of 
six technological areas: electronic 
communications, energy, 
aerospace, computer science, 
manufacturing automation or of

McGrath Takes Over Aid 

Friday, September 27, 1985— THE CRUSADER— Page 3 

Effective September 6, 1985, 
was the resignation of Mr. 
Robert Watson as Director of 
Financial Aid at Susquehanna. 
This was a sorry loss for the 
University, as Mr. Watson had 
done such a fine job in his posi- 
tion. v 

What now? With so many 
students receiving financial aid, 
what is the deal? Well, welcome 
to the office, Dr. Thomas 
McGrath, Professor of 
Chemistry. Dr. McGrath has 
served on the financial aid com- 
mittee since it was reactivated. 
More importantly, maybe, from 
the students point of view, is that 
Dr. McGrath has been the parent 
of students receiving financial aid

for college. This should make him 
extra understanding of the time- 
consuming paperwork. 

Dr. McGrath will hold this 
position for the entire academic 
year. Meanwhile the search for a 
new Director of Financial Aid 
will begin. 

They are looking for a com- 
petent new director who will be 
able to meet the needs of Sus- 
quehanna's financial aid pro- 
grams. They also would like to 
find someone committed and per- 
sonable. The transition from Dr. 
McGrath to a new Director of 
Financial Aid will be as smooth 
as possible. This is why Dr. 
McGrath will be serving until Ju- 
ly or August 1986. This will pro- 
vide "stability and consistency" 

Joffrey Ballet 

Celebrating its sixteenth year, 
this vibrant young company con- 
tinues to dazzle audiences 
wherever they go. In cities large 
and small, from opera houses to 
outdoor festivals, The Joffery II 
Dancers electrify the stage with 
their own Joffrey-band of 
classical ballet. 

The repertory spans the dance 
vocabulary with the solidity and 
beauty of Sir Frederick Ashton 
and Anthony Tudor to the brash, 
contemporary exuberance of 
Choo San Goh and Lance 
Westergard. True to the Joffrey 
philosophy the company remains 
committed to preserving the 
work of 20th century artists; 
while providing an important 
showcase for emerging chor- 
eographers, composers, and 

You do not have to travel to 
New York and Los Angeles to 
catch the Joffrey spirit. The Jof- 
frey II Dancers will be in Weber 
Chapel Auditorium on Saturday, 
September 28 at 8 pm, just one of 
their many destinations as they 
travel around the country and 
beyond, bringing vitality, beauty, 
youth, and artistic excellence for 
everyone to share. 

Come shine with our galaxy of 
rising young stars! Tickets are 
available at the Weber Chapel 
box office until 6 pm tonight and 
at the performance tomorrow

beginning October 14 by 


This disorder consists of compulsive eating followed by 
vomiting, taking laxatives or fasting. The goal of this group will 
be to assist its members to overcome this disorder by: 

— teaching techniques in self-control. 

— seeking insight into individual causes of this problem. 

— understanding the dilemmas created by this problem. 

— seeking ways to better deal with expression of inner feel- 
ings and personal conflicts.

phone Dr. Brink at 202 S. Second St., Lewisburg,

for financial aid students, 
according to Dean of Admissions, 
Pamela White. 

Presently, Dr. McGrath is 
making the transition from 
chemistry professor, a job he's 
had since 1963, to Financial Aid 
Director. He wishes to retain his 
advisees, although he will be 
giving up all of his classes. This 
was, in fact, his last week of 
chemistry classes until next fall. 

We all wish Dr. McGrath luck 
over this next year. I'm sure that 
he will serve the students well as 
Interim Director of Financial 
Aid, and hope that he will con- 
tinue to keep things running

Looking for a Win 

The Susquehanna University 
football team will aim for its first 
win of the season Saturday 
against Delaware Valley in the 
Homecoming/Inauguration game 
at Amos Alonzo Stagg Field. The 
Aggies are 1-1 overall, and 1-0 in 
the MAC. The team from 
Doylestown, Pa., "did everything 
well against Albright," empha- 
sized Coach "Rocky" Rees, who 
attended the game. They passed 
the ball effectively and ran inside 
and outside with equal ability." 

The Crusaders are 0-2 overall, 
0-1 in the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference (MAC). Susquehanna 
dropped its MAC opener last 
Saturday 20-14 to Lycoming, a 
projected conference title con- 

"If Lycoming is as good as 
everyone says they are, we found 

out that we are also a good foot- 
ball team," said Rees. The first- 
year mentor was also pleased by 
his team's turnover-free perfor- 
mance against the Warriors. 

Although the Orange and 
Maroon rushing game was held 
to 91 yards by Lycoming, the 
Crusaders passing attack was in 
full swing. Senior quarterback 
Ken Hughes of Philadelphia, Pa., 
completed 16 of 25 passes for 1 96 
yards and two touchdowns. "Ken 
made things happen on the field 
and really became a leader of the 
offense," according to Rees. 
Hughes is the MAC's leading 
passer with an average of 16 com- 
pletions per game. 

Both of Hughes' touchdown 
throws were to sophomore split 
end Al Bucci of Claymont, Del. 
Bucci made five catches, tying 

him for third spot on the MAC 
receiving list. He is also tied for 
third in scoring in the conference. 

"Our defense played tentative- 
ly at the start against Lycoming," 
stated Rees, "but the unit did 
come back with a tough and ag- 
gressive second half. The leading 
Crusader tackier for the first two 
games is junior end David Kells 
of Phoenixville, Pa. Kells made 
13 tackles and was involved in 
one quarterback sack against 
Lycoming. In two games, he has 
made 24 tackles. 

Kickoff Saturday is set for 1 :30 
p.m. Halftime ceremonies in con- 
junction with Homecoming will 
include the crowning of the 
Homecoming Queen and the in- 
duction of three members into 
the Susquehanna University 
Sports Hall of Fame. 

Volleyballers Pull Even 

The Women's Volleyball team 
upped its record from 0-4 to 4-4 
this past week with sweeps in two 
tri-matches. Led by strong hitting 
and serving, the ladies defeated 
Scranton and Moravian on Tues- 
day, and York and Marywood on 

Traveling to Scranton slowed 
the Crusaders a bit, as they lost 
the first game 8-15. The ladies 
rallied, however, and defeated 
Scranton soundly in the next two 
games, 15-11 and 15-8. Seniors 
Alice Brown and Kat Kissinger 
combined for 12 kills to lead SUk. 
After a fifteen minute break, 
the team faced Moravian and 
won in two games, 15-8 and 
15-11. Again, Brown led the team 
with five kills and five service 
aces. Kris Hauhuth contributed 
four kills to the Crusader attack 

C.C. Crushes 

The Susquehanna Cross Coun- 
try Team tasted its first Middle 
Atlantic Conference competition 
at Elizabethtown College. Sus- 
quehanna's harriers delt crushing 
blows to three M.A.C. teams, 
two weeks ago. The Cross Coun- 
try Team shut out Elizabethtown 
and Kings colleges by a score of 
15 to 50; and had a decisive vic- 
tory over Wilkes College with a 
score of 21 to 40, starting off the 
season with a 3-0 record. 

Last Saturday the Crusaders 
traveled to New York to compete 
in a highly competitive invita- 
tional. The team placed a re- 
spectable third behind Ithaca & 
Cortland colleges, two nationally 
ranked colleges in cross country. 

This weekend, the team will 
hold its first home meet against 
Delaware Valley & York col- 
leges. The Cross Country Team 
invites you to come out and sup- 
port us during the Homecoming 
festivities. Finally, we would like 
to wish the other SU teams 
"Good Luck" this weekend and 
for the rest of the season.

Ringmaster Takes Office 

The Man 
Behind The Glasses 

The following interview was 
conducted on the Thursday 
beginning Inauguration 
Weekend. President Cun- 
ningham candidly responded to 
my questions, offered his insights 
to campus dealings, and even en- 
joyed our poking fun at him in a 
previous issue. 1 think you'll find 
his remarks interesting and infor- 

Editor: We understand that the 
student's participation in the in- 
auguration was mainly your idea. 
Do you believe that student par- 
ticipation is an important part of 
our University? 

President Cunningham: Yes, I 
do believe that. I've been to a 
number of inaugurations where 
presidents were invited to other 
president's inaugurations; as an 
acting president I went to several 
last year. In most cases, the 
number of students who were ac- 
tive and involved was fairly small 
and that discouraged the people 
who were being inaugurated and 
some of the guests. So, as the 
group began to plan for Sus- 
quehanna's inauguration, I was 
particularly pleased to see them 
come up with some ways to get 
students involved. I'm delighted 
with the students who responded, 
they were, or seemed to be, en- 
thusiastic about being able to par- 
ticipate. Inaugurations are events 
that are state occasions, occa- 
sions for the celebration of an in- 
stitution. I think it would be a 
real shame to have one without 
the main focus of the institution 
without students being actively 

Ed.: How do you feel about the 
students, in general, at Sus- 

P. C: Well, I don't know all 
the students, obviously, but I 
know a great many and have 
taught a fairly large number of 
them, and I enjoy these students. 

They are bright people, they're 
friendly, they care a lot about one 
another to a much higher degree 
than is true at most institutions. 
They're involved in service to 
others, and there's a lot of sup- 
port of students, one for another 
here— which is fairly unusual. I 
enjoyed teaching students at Sus- 
quehanna, and I regret, at least 
for the time being, I'm not able to 
be doing that. I would like very 
much to find some way to team 
teach or to teach a section of a 
course, or even if I could achieve

The Inauguration of Joel 
Luther Cunningham as Thir- 
teenth President of Susquehanna 
University was held on Sunday, 
September 29, in Weber Chapel 
Auditorium, and what an event it 

To the strains of "The Royal 
Fireworks" by George Frederick 
Handel, the processional began. 
It included representatives from 
nearly 150 different universities, 
as close to home as Bucknell, and 
as distant as the University of Ox- 
ford in London, England, and the 
California Lutheran College. Stu- 
dent representatives from nearly 
35 campus organizations were 
present, as well as much of Sus- 
quehanna's faculty and staff 

Chairman Shobert welcomed 
us all to the event, and then in- 
troduced Mrs. Anne Shepherd 
who brought to President Cun- 
ningham special greetings from 
the governor. 

Jim Faust, President of SGA, 
was the first speaker of the day. 
He represented the students well, 
and introduced Dr. Cunningham 

as both a "leader and a good 
friend." Jim also spoke of the 
goals of SGA, to begin a feeling 
of belonging to the student body 
at SU, and to get students in- 
volved in campus life. 

The greeting from the Alumni 
was presented by Maria Wer- 
nikowski Macfarlan, President of 
the Alumni Association. Then, 
Dr. Richard Kamber, Acting 
Dean of Faculty, spoke for the 

faculty. "An Inauguration," he 
said, "evokes feelings of renewal, 
uncertainty, and hopeful an- 
ticipation." Anticipation and 
renewal seem to be the prevalent 
feelings now. 

Arts for Africa 

Was there ever a time you've 
left the cafeteria still feeling 
hungry? Every day millions of 
people in Africa feel this way. 

Some haven't eaten for days. But 
what does this have to do with 
you - the average college student? 
Now we have the opportunity to 
contribute a small portion to help 
those starving human beings. 

"Arts For Africa" is challenging 
every student, faculty member, 
administrators, fraternity, sorori- 
ty, and campus organization to 
help by donating to this worthy 
cause. Our goal is 100% par- 
ticipation of all people in the Sus- 

quehanna Community. All 
monies will be given to the 
African Relief Fund. By donating 
$20.00, you may receive a season 
ticket to nine concerts provided 

by university organizations. Ad- 
mission to individual concerts is 
available through a donation of 
$3.00. Donations may be given 
by purchasing tickets at the SU 
Box Office or at the time of each 

performance. Please help by 
giving just a little to those 
millions of starving people. We 
need your help, but more impor- 
tantly, they need you! Let's make 
it "SU For Africa!" Contribute 

Representing the Lutheran 
Church was the Reverend 
Frederick G. Wedemeyer, Assis- 
tant to the Bishop, Central Penn- 
sylvania Synod, Lutheran 
Church in America. The key 
point in his speech was that the 
Lutheran Church has always had 
a long standing commitment to 
education. Rev. Wedmeyer 

seemed pleased with Susquehan- 
na University, and how it has 
upheld these standards. Lastly, 
The Honorable George W. 
Gekas, Member of U.S. Con- 
gress, the 17th District of Penn- 
sylvania spoke of the nation's 
hunger for education, and the 
responsibility of the learning in- 
stitutions to fill this hunger, and 
to fulfill the hopes and dreams of 
the people. 

Well, now it was time for a 
break, and the University Con- 
cert Choir, under the direction of 
Cyril M. Stretansky provided us 
with a refreshing one as they per- 
formed the Exultate Deo by 
Alessandro Scarlatti. Thank you, 

Finally, William Davenport, 
Chairman of the Presidential 
Search Committee presented Dr. 
Joel Cunningham as the Presi- 
dent Designate. Dr. Cunningham 
was chosen on May 20, 1985 as, 

the 13th President of this Univer- 
sity. Four months later, he was 
installed by Chairman Shobert in 
his new position. At the final 
words of the oath of office, "I 
will, with God's help," Dr. Joel 
Cunningham received his stand- 
ing ovation. 

The address was given by Dr. 
Frank Newman, President of the 
Education Commission of the 
States. He compared the job of 
the average presidential search 
committee to that of "looking for 

God on one of his good days." 
The title of his speech was 
"Leadership, Followership, and 
University Survival." Dr. 
Newman praised Susquehanna 
University's devotion to develop- 

ing students as members of socie 
ty by encouraging creativity, 
willingness to take risks, and 
community involvement. He 
pointed out that everybody is 
both leading and following at the 
same time, and that to be a good 
leader you must also be a good 

Finally, President Cunning 
ham got his big chance to stand 
at the podium. He freely admit- 
ted the difficulty in reading his 
new book, an inauguration gift 

from Drs. Ron and Chris Dot 
terer. It is entitled "If I Ran the 
Circus", and was written by none 
other than Dr. Suess. Quite the 
analogy for what it really is like 
to run this university. On whom 
is the joke? 

On a more serious note, Presi 
dent Cunningham stressed 
"gathering, shaking, and 
spreading a vision of what Sus- 
quehanna University was, is, and 
will become" He underlined his 

goals for the University, in- 
cluding that the Sigmund Weis 
Business School become know 
nationally, and that the music 
program will continue in its 
finesse. He is also looking for a 
means of teaching that stimulates 
a student's learning ability most 

There seems to be much in 
store for SU under its new leader. 
President Cunningham. Not only 
does he have visions for SU, but 
he also has love for it. How many 

students haven't seen, or even 
talked to President Cunningham 
as he walks across campus. Just 
looking around, you can see how 
personal his concern is for the 

students. So, I end in the words of 
Jim Faust, but I speak for just 
about everyone. President Cun- 
ningham, "We love the man 
behind the old fashioned glasses." 
Thank you for your concern and 
love that you so visibly give to us!

Our Comer 

Even though we run the risk of 
overkill, we here at The Crusader 
would like to throw in a few 
words of our own regarding Joel 
L. Cunningham and Inaugura- 
tion Weekend as a whole. Per- 
sonally, I was impressed. On Sun- 
day, I ushered the Inauguration 
Ceremony. My illustrious duties 
mostly consisted of handing out 

programs to the guests. Maybe 
it's just my imagination, but some 
wonderful people walked through 
those doors. I recognized many 
alumni, community supporters, 
and of course, students, there to 
join in on what can honestly be 
called a celebration. 

I'm one of the few students on 
campus who had not really 
talked to President Cunningham 
before his Inauguration 
Ceremony, and it was there that I 
got my first glimpse at what 
makes him so special in so many 
people's eyes. I could not help but 
be impressed, however, as I held 

the doors open for the proces- 
sional and the soon-to-be- 
inaugurated, shouldn't-he-be- 
terribly-nervous Joel Cun- 
ningham asked me how I was 
holding up as he entered the 
chapel doors. Like I said, I was 

It's not just the President that 
makes this University so special, 
though— after all, he is a mere 
mortal! I remember when I was 

still in the process of selecting 
Susquehanna as my home away 
from home. I think what finally 
made me choose SU was not the 
terrific faculty, the beautiful cam- 
pus, or even (sorry folks) the fine, 
then-acting President Cun- 
ningham. Instead, I remembered 
the friendliness of the people and 
how amazed I was that everyone 
said "hello." I heard several com- 
ments along the same lines over 
the weekend from new prospec- 
tive students. 

This weekend I got the chance 
to stand and greet the guests of 
Susquehanna as they strolled 
around campus and filed in for 
Inauguration. I couldn't stop 
smiling as students, honored 
guests, and a whole procession of 
faculty members pulled together 
in honor of the new President. 

The Crusader would like to ex- 
press our appreciation to 
everyone who helps make Sus- 
quehanna the great place it is, 
and offer our sincerest con- 
gratulations to President Cun- 
ningham. It takes a special man 
to successfully run the Sus- 
quehanna circus and Joel Luther 
Cunningham, with God's help, 
you will.

The Phenolumn 

by Doug Chamberlin 

IX. Homegoing 

As October approaches and 
everything begins to settle down 
for the winter months, we all find 
reasons to make at least one 
pilgrimage to that sacred place 
known as HOME. We have dif- 
ferent reasons; a change of 
scenery, a chance to visit with 
friends, bringing home empty 
boxes or bringing back more full 
ones, but nearly everyone here 
retreats for one weekend. This 
particular trip gave me a chance 
to appreciate the reality that 
there are some people in this 
world who are not currently at 
Susquehanna University. Often 
we seem to get so wrapped up in 
our own world that we forget 
what life outside the SU 
pleasuredome is.... 

"But you know how well 
you're doing, don't you?" 

"I always do excellent by my 
standards. Unfortunately some 
professors just don't match up to 
my standards, so I have to let 
them flunk me." 

"Well why don't you study 
more on the weekends!?" she asks 

"I need to relax on the 
weekends! Sometimes you just 
have to blow off steam and let 
yourself go crazy." 

"OK. Why don't you study 
more on the weekdays, then." 

"Because I need to relax from 
blowing off so much steam and 
going crazy on the weekends." 

I arrive home, greeted by two 
adults with outstretched arms. 
My father takes my suitcases up 
the stairs as Mom and I struggle 
with a hopeless conversation... 

"Well, has anything interesting 
happened since we last saw you?" 
she asks. "How is school?" 

"Fine." The word "fine" is a 
saving grace in describing college 
life to parents. 

"How are classes in uh... ah, 
what major are you this week, 
dear? Are you still declared as an 
Indecisive Major?" 


"Undecided, yes. Well, as long 
as you're making straight A's this 
semester then that's what's im- 
portant. How are your grades 
shaping up?" 

I tell her that I haven't had any 
tests yet. 

We spend the whole day talk- 
ing on completely different levels, 
each with a different attitude and 
a separate goal. Mom is so con- 
cerned over the nitty-gritty; 
sometimes it becomes tiring; 
sometimes, amusing. I talk of 
Susquehanna, she talks about it... 

"How is English? Do you use 
those word processors often?" 

I answer. "Actually, I missed a 
report deadline because they 
kicked me out of the library com- 
puter room at 1 1 o'clock." 

"So why didn't you go to the 
other computer room?" 

"I did. They kicked me out at 

"It sounds to me like you've 
got a really bad reputation among 
computer-room proctors. Did you 
break something?" 

It's the rules they're concerned 
with. Neglecting something will 
not be tolerated. Unless there's a 
great reason... 

Sorry Loss? 

This letter is in response to an 
article from the September 27th 
issue of the Crusader: "McGrath 
Takes Over Aid." I am not ques- 
tioning the validity of the infor- 
mation about Dr. McGrath or 
how qualified he is. Instead I 
would like to point out that the 
resignation of Mr. Watson was 
not a "sorry loss for the universi- 
ty." Based on personal experience 
and what I have been told, not 
heard, from reliable sources Wat- 
son did little to no good as 
Director of Financial Aid and 
was asked to leave on his own or 
be fired. In more than one case 
Watson reduced aid to students 

Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus 

who had or whose parents had a 
bank account that earned more 
than $300 interest. The reason 
for this deduction was based on 
the idea that if a person had 
earned more than $300 interest 
that individual had a large 
amount of capital and was earn- 
ing approximately 11.5% in- 
terest. Watson also reduced the 
number of students who were 
qualified to receive aid. This not 
only caused hardships and, in 
some cases, panic among students 
and their families, but also re- 
duced the amount of aid the 

school will get from the state and 
federal governments. The univer- 
sity gets so much aid in propor- 
tion to the number of students re- 
ceiving aid. So all in all, the cuts 
in financial aid this year hurt the 
students as well as the school. No 
one benefited and fortunately 
Mr. Watson is no longer here. As 
far as the statement that there is 
hope that Dr. McGrath "will con- 
tinue to keep things running 
smoothly," things have to run 
smoothly before they can con- 
tinue to run smoothly.

classes, Son."

that they put up a chain so cars

"A chain." 

They are concerned when I am 
not healthy. Perhaps they worry 
that it's their fault. Perhaps they 
worry that it's mine. Having 
taken the right steps of preven- 
tion is all that matters. If you're 
sick but you tried to fight it and 
lost, then it's acceptable...

Did you catch a cold this term?" 


"Too bad. Have you been able 
to shake it?" 


"That's what comes from not

You need more fruit! Do you eat

"I have Crunch-Berries every

went to the Health Center last 
week. I told them that I was 
weak, I had chills, fever, cough, 
stuffy nose, and backache. The 
nurse asked me if I also had a 
headache and I told her no." 

"And what happened?" 

"She said she could give me 
something to cure the problem." 

"And did it work?" 

"Oh yes, I got a headache as 
soon as I took it." 

They drive me back to school.

again, because that is all that is 
left over to talk about now... - 

"How is your roommate?" 

"He's OK now. We had a lot of

tell you we stole a Stop-Sign for a 
wall decoration?" 

"You shouldn't do that. That 
costs money." 

"Yeah, it cost him $1500.00" 

"What happened?" 

"He ran through the intersec- 
tion in his car the next day and 
totalled it." 

"That's a shame. Call us and 
let us know how he is. Why don't 
you call more often?"

For those of you who are too 
lazy to leave your dorm for those 
evening study break snacks, but 
desire something other than pizza 
by Pappa's, there is now a new 
alternative! A food truck makes 
the rounds from dorm to dorm 
each evening. Run by a local 
restaurant, and under the super- 
vision of Bob Hoover ,the vehicle 
circles the campus and supplies 
students with all the eats they 
desire. They serve just about 
anything, from hot dogs and 
hamburgers to meatball sand- 
wiches. For the sweeter tooth, 
there is ice cream, and they also 
offer a whole array of items to 
quench your thirst — everything 
from soft drinks to V-8. All the 
hot foods are cooked right on the 
truck, so you can be sure they are 
served fresh. Schedules are up 
around campus telling when and 
where the truck is stopping. If 
you want to place a specific order 
you can call them at 374-1194. 
And don't worry University

take advantage of this new

It's Greek to Us 


Hello! I hope everyone has 
recovered from Homecoming 
weekend. Too bad that SU lost 
against Delaware Valley. Well 
get them next year! But besides 
the game it was great to see our 
old senior buddies from last year. 

Well, thanks to the help of Phi 
Sig we combined to win the 
trophy for best float in the 
parade! We had a great time mak- 
ing the float with you. Thanks 
again especially for the people 
who put on the finishing touches. 
We would like to congratulate 
Sigma Kappa and Theta Chi for 
winning second prize and Alpha 
Delta Pi for winning third. You 
all did an excellent job. 

This is just a reminder that 
starting this past Wednesday is 
"grey week" for Zetas. I hope 
each of you will remember your 
secret pal this week and give her 
something special! If you forgot 
your turquoise you can still give 
it to her, but hurry up! 

Wasn't it great to see Denise 
Reading again? Denise is one of 
our field consultants from the 
south. She was here to help us 
become more organized and we 
are finally there. Hope for in- 
stallation before Thanksgiving?? 
We can do it! 

In Zeta Love, 


How's it goin'! I hope everyone 
enjoyed fifth week and all the 
associated tests that came to be 
today. I know that I'll enjoy the 
weekend. Last weekend we had a 
blast down at the avenue. Phi Sig 
would like to extend its thanks to 
the girls of ZTA who helped us 
win first place in the Home- 
coming Parade. I would also like 
to thank the guys who worked 
until the wee hours of the night 
building, it is definitely ap- 

With the return of many of our 
brothers, many stories became 
history. Dart definitely grabbed 
the headlines again. You look 
good in white, especially shaving 
cream. We never should have 
awakened you. Even if it was on- 
ly eight o'clock. Opie finally 
made a weekend with us. D.B. 
was back in action and being very 
handy and made his famous 
nuclear chicken which still has 
everyones' eyes watering and 
tongues burned. E.T. was back 
again while Conan was pardoned 
for the weekend and the 
Destroyer was back up to his old 
form. Well that's all from the 
avenue. Talk to ya soon!! 


Hi everyone!! I hope 
Homecoming weekend proved to 
be festive. We all had a great time 
seeing all our old friends again 
and reliving some great 
memories. Also, it was a lot of 
fun to create and work on our 
float from Wednesday to Satur- 
day; every stuffed chicken wire 
hole, broken nail, cut hand and 
all our effort was worth it just to 
ride in the parade! But everything 
paid off when our own Caroline 
Hackel was crowned Home- 
coming Queen! Congratulations 
Caroline!! After the game we had 
a wild reunion with our Alumni. 
Thanks to everyone that helped 
us celebrate. Since our weekend 
was so uncivilized, the Kappa 
Delta Holiday Inn will be closed 
for the next few weeks for major 

Kappa Delta is looking for- 
ward to our first, but not the last, 
bash with Phi Mu Delta tonight. 
What do you say guys, let's do it 

Well, that's all the news that's 
fit to print! Until next week, 111 
leave everyone with this little 

September is over 

October has arrived 

The place is here 

The time is now 

Let's start a brand new year! 
"Excuse me sir, is this 
The Delta House....?" 


The Sigma saga continues, 
despite the fact that I just got out 
of the hospital. I had heart failure 
(as anyone who saw me last Fri- 
day knows) when I saw that "It's 
Greek To Us" was cut out of last 
week's newspaper. They also 
know why...? 

Who was it? It was sister Tam- 
my Krommis who was lavaliered 
by Theta brother Randy Hughes. 
Good luck you two! And while 
we're on the subject of Theta 
Brothers, hard work and getting 
up earlier than noon on a Satur- 
day paid off. Our combined ef- 
forts earned us 2nd place for our 
float! We thank the brothers for a 
more than fun experience and 
look forward to doing more in the 
future. Will your chapter room 
ever be the same? A special 
thanks to Deb. B. for such a 
relaxing time and enjoyable Fri- 
day afternoon drive in the coun- 
try. Rabbit and Mick and I want 
to do this again real soon. (Glad 
to see you and Mick have time on 
your side once again.)

The Bunders would like to 
thank the alumni for all their 
generous contributions. Mui 
donated his wallet and Capt. Ray 
left us a tuna hoagie. Ray said the 
hoagie was for Lew because of all 
the help he gave during the house 
cleanup. We do have to mention 
some casualties from last 
weekend. Mur was injured in the 
alumni rugby game and Redbone 
was so happy to be back that he 
was seen kissing the barroom 
floor. Howie left early to go 
house hunting with the wife and 
we don't know if Gary enjoyed 
himself because he wasn't awake 
long enough for us to tell. All in 
all it was a good weekend and we 
are looking forward to seeing all 
the guys next year. (Except 

We would also like to an- 
nounce that the weight-in for this 
week's- party will be at 140 
pounds. Please take the necessary 
precautions! This week's main 
event will be tag team match with 
Rottet and Finch vs. Buls and 
Schuabby. Both teams won their 
respective matches last weekend 
with only Buls receiving a bloody 
nose. Let's face it, he had a 
tougher opponent. 

Finally we would like to con- 
gratulate Caroline and Donna as 
the senior representatives for this 
year's homecoming Junior girls. 
Lew will be back next year as an 
escort so don't worry. 


Welcome to the end of fifth 
week. Too bad it isn't the fif- 
teenth. Last weekend for us was 
very ballsy. We had a great alum- 
ni turn out, some of whom shared 
alot of things. Dooey was the 
winner of the fifth AOW award, 
it was a close one and he can't 
even understand why. Maybe 
because he doesn't know what 
happened to him. Dooey— How's 
your head? A new award had to 
be presented as a result of last 
weekend and it goes to alumni 
brother Tarl for an engaging per- 
formance all Saturday night. For 
that he gets the first and only 
AOL. Congrats. Dave— where- 
ever you are. And by the way, a 
round of applause goes to Lisa 
Balboa for sticking up for family. 
You can back us up anyday little 
Tarl. Really! 

Congratulations goes out to 
our newly initiated little sisters. 
Way to go girls. It was a little 
sticky Weds, night, though huh? 

Looking to the weekend we 
can't wait for the party with Kap- 
pa Delta. Then on Sat. we're 
looking forward to our first ever 
Boxer party. I'm sure everyone 
will be left short at this one. 

Of course as always good luck 
Toph in the soccer game tomor- 
row. And to Dooey— "When you 
hit that hole, move those stubby 
little legs. 

Two short notes to close- 
Remember, Tues. night for ice 
cream, so no Papa's and don't 
buy anything from that little 
truck. Also, the Giants are 3-1 
and are on their way to playing in 
late Jan. We predict a good game 
Sunday night. 

Til Tuesday 
Next Week, 
Dooey and Shadow 

Due to limited space in our 
September 27 issue, "It's Greek to 
Us" could not be printed. We pre- 
sent this week's "It's Greek to 
Us" on page 4, with last week's 
on page 5. 



We'd like to start this week off 
by congratulating Pres. Cun- 
ningham on his inauguration, 
and Brother Faust on a wonder- 
fully delivered speech which was 
quoted in the Daily Item. For 
whom it may concern, Jim is run- 
ning for University President in 
about seven years. 

We'd also like to thank all our 
alums for stopping by for the en- 
tire weekend to initiate our new 
bar. The Brothers worked quite 
hard in all facets of construction, 
but Tim V. must be given credit 
for all the hard work he put into 
the bar Friday night. We hope 
that Mr. Destruction (who is still 
at large) keeps his distance. 

We are quite thankful to the 
sisters of Sigma Kappa who 
"dropped by" last Saturday night. 
Everyone had a great time. 

We are very proud of the job 
our little sisters have been doing. 
Keep up the good work girls, and 
don't let Jeff D. get at you just 
cause he's in a bad mood. Well 
be having a little cookout at the 
Overlook Sunday. We are all 
looking forward to it. Hey, Jamie 
who gave you those really nice 

Birthday wishes must go out to 
Eric and Dave who will be 10 and 
1 1 respectively. The Cook School 
has now accepted them as 
undergrads. All they have to do is 
pass all their courses. Speaking of 
the Cook School, Lee and Dan 
were given honorary degrees 
from the institute as they took 
"early" courses the first few 
weeks back. 

Just a few words before I go: 
No more of those flamethrowers, 
Mike! Whoa! Slam on those 
brakes! Get him out of there! 
Robbing the cradle again, Dave? 
Hey, Roy, I told you that the 
Bengals would win! Hey Trade, 
any more visitors during the early 
morning hours? Sharon, we've 
got to see those pictures! 
Until next week

It's Greek to Us 

Friday, October 4, 1985-THE CRUSADER-Page 5 


We'd like to start off this week 
by sending a very belated thank 
you to the sisters of Sigma Kappa 
for joining us for the Second 
weekend for more than a good 

Also belated birthday wishes 
go out to Brothers Lieb and Vile. 
Speaking of B'days, Brother Herb 
is now the third graduate of the 
Cook School. He completed all 
his courses on his birthday, this 
past Saturday. Happy 20, Jimmy. 

The Brothers would like to 
voice our rage at Mr. De- 
struction, who, in the past four 
weeks has broken: lamps, beds, 
bicycles, legs, and hearts. He also 
tracked sand through Seibert and 
assisted Chris N. in breaking the 
window at 310. Our sincere 
apologies go out to the girls in 
312 who have to put up with 
those clowns. 

Our Rush committee would 
like to announce that our Mon- 
day Night Football functions 
have been very successful, and 
any interested Freshmen may 
stop up at 593 Monday, or any 

Brother Dodsworth would like 
to thank Matt L. for making the 
100 Club. Armand now has the 
capital to buy that Ferrari he's 
always wanted. The brothers 
would like to congratulate the ex- 
ecutive committee of our little 
sisters and thank all the girls for 
making last Saturday a fun time. 
"Hey bartender, make me one of 
those peachy things" - "Sorry, 
you're cut off for the remainder 
of the evening." Also girls, you 
now have big brothers, watch 
your mail for further details. 
Scooter is recovering from his 

vounds; Dan has now taken the 
nickname "downtown" from 
Craig; and thanks go out to Tim 
0. who rescued all those suf- 
focating people out of the FM 
booth. "George" spins some 
awesome records too! 

Hey Chris, the following have 
been stung: CS, AS, SC, SS. More 
than once, I might add. They are 
coming from within! DO 

In closing, the Brothers and 
Mr. & Mrs. Scooter would like to 
congratulate Pres. Cunningham 
on his inauguration. 





The quote of the week: 

"I hate my roommate." 

Kirk out. 


O.K. We're back! We'd like to 
congratulate Dr. Joel Cun- 
ningham on his inauguration as 
SU's 13th president. 

Last weekend turned out pret- 
ty good; our little sisters had a 
good time with their control of 
the downstairs last Friday. Also, 
the killer punch struck again at 
our cookout with Alpha Delta Pi 
last Sat. How many people rode 
that bike? 

For Curt's insane behavior, he 
beat out two other nominees to 
win the third AOW Award. 
Don't worry about the shirt, just 
go charge another one. 

Pumpkin & Dooey 



I hope everyone is all revved 
up for this weekend! Home- 
coming is always fun: watching 
football players and even some of 
the game, spectacular floats, and 
all the visiting alumni— they 
make the school seem complete. 

Congratulations! We are so 
happy to have Joel Cunningham 
as our for-real president. (He 
doesn't have to act anymore!) 

Alpha Delta Pi is proud that 
Donna Hansen, Jenny Alexion, 
and Michelle Zuniga were elected 
for this year's Homecoming 
Representative! We are excited 
for all of you. 

Sister Barbie Johnson is now 
eligible to be seen on "The 
Newlywed Game." Last Saturday 
she bid a fond farewell to her 
bachelorette days— we wish them 
both the best. 

The Delta boys were our 
gracious hosts last Friday. They 
served BBQ and refresh- 
ments... they even had a chair for 
us to sit in. How courteous! Only 
problem was Robin Emerson 
wouldn't let anyone else have a 
seat. Thanks guys— it was fun! 

Sister Mother Jen. Betts will be 
available to take temperatures for 
anyone ailing. 

Please, Ms. Kimmy T. and Ms. 
Annie B. could yall stop com- 
municating in the market. You 
are keeping the poor cleaning- 
man from his duties! 

Linda P. is proud to announce 
her accomplishment.. .she finally 
made the K list, heard she had to 
import from downtown 
too— wow— what ambition! 

Gretchen Dell was picked this 
year to be on the O.P.C. (orienta- 
tion planning committee— you 
know the orange shirt guys.) Con- 
gratulations to her and the other 
pi's on the team. 

Reminder: start scoping for 
dudes— not every guy looks good 
in a ten-gallon hat. 

That's all for now! Have a fan- 
tastic Homecoming! Adios! 
F. Purdue 


Last Saturday, SU turned out 
in a mass number to support our 
team at Lycoming. Unfortunate- 
ly we were defeated but don't 
give up guys, victory is right 
around the corner! 

Thanks again to everyone who 
attended our Luau last Thursday. 
We had a GREAT time, and 
please feel free to stop by 

Also, Kappa Delta would like 
to congratulate Dr. Cunningham 
on his Inauguration Sunday. 
Good Luck to our new president. 

In closing, Happy Birthdays to 
sisters Denae Schoner and Bobbi 
Rostiac. Laura B. and Liz Kelly 
we're glad to see both of you 
back, Laura F. have you gone on 
any hikes lately? Marisa, I can't 
believe you only scored a 60! 
Jean, let's cut up some linoleum 
this weekend. Remember 
everyone to attend the inaugura- 
tion on Sunday when our own 
Gina "I have a dream" Hucke 
will take that inaugural walk with 
our new president and YES, eight 
skin graphs later Dave "Jaws" 
Roe is still walking the hallowed 
paths of SU - glad to hear you're 
feeling better! Until next week, 
take it easy. 

"Excuse me sir, is this the 

Delta House ?" 



Hi everyone! How was 
everyones' fourth week of 

We had a great time last Sun- 
day with the sisters of Sigma 
Kappa at the picnic. We would 
like to thank them, and especially 
Rhian and Kris for their great 
cooking abilities. Maybe next 
time well play duck, duck, goose? 

Another great time was our 
lock-in at Theta Chi. Thanks for 
the use of your bar room! We'll 
become regulars soon, even you 
Cheri. And, of course, Ginny 
with the "foot fetish" can always 
make it fun when kicking cups. 
Wasn't that funny, Kris? 

Hey Phyllis, we're all rooting 

for you at Homecoming. Good 

luck and just remember how 

great "your office" is. 

In Zeta love, 



Its been a busy week again but 
the key word of the week has 
been anticipation!! The reason is 
Homecoming. Over the past 
week we've been getting phone 
calls and letters from all of our 
alums and it should be a really 
good time, like always. Last 
weekend was quite memorable 
for many of us. A happy birthday 
goes out to brother Bowman. It's 
too bad that you have an aver- 
sion to Apple beverages now. 
Dart went Dark. Dribble still 
cursed; Whatman disappeared 
after five minutes at a party; 
Dorfman got his hair wet and 
freaked, a squirrel fell off a 
telephone wire; and a mass ex- 
odus flew to Lehigh and had a 
helluva time. Rumor has it that 
our pool table is for sale, so any 
interested parties please get in 
touch soon. That's all for this 
week catch you soon. 


This weekend only, the Rec Room will be 
renting canoes for $4.00, which is a $2.00 
savings from the normal price. Remember, we 
are located in the gameroom, and open daily 
from 12:30-2:30 p.m. So come on down and get 
a canoe at a special low price! 


Who was it that said Greek 
Life is a soap opera? Here we 
have yet another episode of 
Sigma Saga. Life at the 300 U.A. 
homefront is progressively 
becoming more elegant. Johnny 
Alden set up all our new fur- 
niture and our chapter room 
looks absolutely stunning! Presi- 
dent Boyle thinks we're "sitting 
pretty" but little does she know 
that her beau Mick Jagger was 
seen Dancing in the Streets out- 
side 312 with Judy. The whole 
time Judy's roommate Michele 
knew that it would all come 
down to a critical point of Emo- 
tional Rescue. Who may need to 
be rescued is sister Baily and her 
field hockey teammates as they 
face adversity in bouncing back 
from an unexpected loss to 
Lycoming. Will Suebo ever be 
able to continue her career even 
though the GoGo's are dead and 
Belinda's lips are now permanent- 
ly sealed? How long can Dana, 
Sue, and Leanne keep their pom 
poms waving as they continue to 
cheer our mighty boys in orange 
to victory? (We wish the team 
our best - Go Get 'Em!). 

If sister Skeel has been looking 
lost to you lately, she's not. She's 
just been wondering aimlessly 
around campus reminiscing 
through her entire freshman 
year. Don't get in her way - she's 
a SENIOR!! She and her "Little" 
M.J. have picked up the fad Dana 
started last week and brought it 
to 312. 

Will Felicia spend the rest of 
her life playing Duck, Duck, 
Goose at backyard cookouts?? 
The fun never ends as our get- 
together with ZTA on Sunday 
was a filling experience. More 
hotdogs anyone?! Thanks to 
Biscuit and Kris for their help. 
More outings in the future are a 

We were happy to see all our 
Sigma Alums and extend you all 
a welcome invitation to our 
house. Congratulations to our 
new President Joel Cunningham 
on his inauguration. 

With birthdays in abundance: 
Paula, Suzanne our beloved 
"Fog," and Tammy - live your 
days to their fullest and until 
your eyes meet Sigma print 
again RBG 


Homecoming weekend is here 
again and we would like to 
welcome back any alumni that 
came for this extravagant 
weekend; have fun but remember 
you have to work on Monday. 
Theta would like to announce the 
hopes for a better parade float 
than last year's, but we aren't 
guaranteeing anything. We'd also 
like to welcome in our newly in- 
augurated President Cunning- 
ham, with the hopes for many 
great years ahead. Not much of 
anything relevant to report, so 
quit reading and have a great 
weekend! Don't get caught doing 
anything you're not supposed to 
be doing!

Cunningham Discusses Future 

(Continued from page 1) 

it, teach a course. But for the 
time being, I suppose, my active 
day to day involvement with the 
students would have to be more 
with the Presidential Fellows 
who meet from time to time and 
discuss books and other activities, 
and the students who come to see 
me about one issue or another, 
like Student Government, or 
other offices, meeting with 
students from time to time in the 
cafeteria.. .my impression is, and 
my feeling is, that the students 
are a very good group of people, 
people that I enjoy working with. 
That's not to say that there are 
never instances in which 
somebody might make a bit more 
noise or do a bit more mischief 
than I would prefer, but by and 
large I think they're a fine group 
of people— people who are well 
on their way to becoming leaders 
and contributors to our society. 
Susquehanna has a good track 
record of preparing people for 
leadership, and for service...! see 
all the evidence that we will con- 
tinue to have that character.

University of Chatanooga, where 
I had become a part of the 
University of Tennessee system. I 
went back as a faculty member of 
mathematics, but also as be- 
ginning continuing education and 
spent a year working for the 
president of the university... A 
year or so later, Susquehanna 
was looking for a Vice-President 
of Academic Affairs, and wrote 
to some friends of mine at the 
American Council of Education 
in Washington, who suggested 
my name, which was nice of 
them, but not really something I 
had any notion of doing. The 
search committee wrote me and I 
very nearly didn't respond to the 
letter, wrote back and said no, 
but for some reason, some aspect 
of that letter caught my atten- 
tion. I talked to my wife about it, 
and I said, "Well, 111 write back 
and see if they might be in- 
terested." They definitely were, 
and invited me for an interview. 
Pretty soon after arriving here, I 
began to fall in love with the 
place. I was invited back, I liked 
the students, faculty, the oppor- 
tunity seemed to exist here, so 
within a few weeks after having 
no real interest in leaving the 
University of Tennessee system I 
decided to come here and I've 
been very pleased with the deci- 

Ed.: Were there any negative 
aspects between leaving Ten- 
nessee and coming here? 

P. C: Well, I think any time 
one leaves a place that's come to 
be home, one misses friends and 
has to do some adjustment. I en- 
joyed that job and those people 
very much as well. There were 
certainly a few days; early on 
when I was the new Academic 
Dean here, that things were fairly 
busy and the pressure was fairly 
great and I wondered why in the 
world I would leave an attractive 
and successful future to come 
and try this job, but by large I 
was very pleased to be here. 
People were supportive, and en- 
couraging and things that seemed 
to me that needed to be done, 
people were supportive of getting 
done, and I appreciate the oppor- 
tunity to be here. 

Ed.: Where would you rate 
Susquehanna among other col-

Garden Cheese 2.09 3.39 



50$ off small cheese or 

garden cheese steak 

$1.00* off large cheese or 

garden cheese steak 

P. C: It's hard to compare col- 
leges across the country because 
there are so many different kinds. 
One of strengths of American 
education is it's enormous diversi- 
ty. For example, we have very 
large research institutions in 
which undergraduates are taught 
often by graduate students. 
Those institutions have con- 
siderable strengths and would be 
ideal institutions for a small 
number of undergraduates who 
might be interested in proceeding 
immediately to an area of 
speciality... My view is that the 
small, undergraduate, inde- 
pendent institutions, which em- 
phasize the liberal arts for all 
their students, and also provide 
career preparation are especially 
attractive for most under- 
graduate students. I think among 
those institutions, Susquehanna 
is very strong indeed. It 
represents an excellent choice for 
students and provides excellent 
preparation for students for a 
strong liberal education and 
preparation for careers. I think 
we stand up very well in a point 
•by point comparison among 
those kinds of institutions. One of 
our jobs in the next few years is 
to make that clearer to the world 
at large. I think we have a real 
outstanding university and one of 
the challenges is to have that fact 
more widely recognized. 

Ed.: How is the transition from 
the trimester system to the 
semester system going? 

P. C: Well, you probably are 
in a position to get even better 
feedback than I am on that, but 
I've been pleased with the 
responses I've heard from 
students that I've talked to about 
the change. There were a number 
of students a year ago and a year 
and a half ago who were ill at 
ease about the prospects of the 
change ; were afraid that it might 
be inconvenient for them. I think 
as I talk to students now, many 
seem to be quite pleased, most, 
I'm not sure I can think of an ex- 
ception right now, seem to be 
quite pleased with the 
transition... they feel that the 
faculty members took care of 
them in the process, that the tran- 
sition has been a fair one, and 
that the new system is a good 
one... that is not to say that there 
is no one who is unhappy about 
the whole system, and there will 
be some. But my impression is 
that the transition is going very 
well, has gone very well, and that 
the end result is an excellent one. 
I ihink our new core curriculum 
is an outstanding core; it is 
representative of the best in cur- 
rent thinking about liberal educa- 
tion for students... the whole ar- 
ray of academic skills in liberal 
education seems to be first rate. I 
think we have a lot to be proud of 
in that and I think as we begin to 
see the effects of it and the 
polishing out of all the details fo 
that report, well be very proud of 
it, indeed. 

Ed.: Have there been any 
problems from the administrative 
side in getting all the records and 
the like changed over? 

P. C: Well, it's an enormous 
amount of work. One of the fac- 
tors that made it unattractive to 
change on the part of the faculty 
and the administration was that 
the whole process was a great 

deal of extra work for the faculty 
and the Registrar and deans and 
others; for the faculty to rework 
the curricula of each major, to 
have a new core, to come up with 
a new schedule for the Registrar, 
and the computer center had to 
make all the adjustments and 
translations, which was an enor- 
mous amount of work. But it 
seems to have gone well and even 
though it has been a very heavy 
burden on several people, that 
work seems to be paying off. I 
think we are to the place where 
we can see that the process has 
been a good one. 

Ed.: Do you have any other 
plans or new ideas for the cam- 

P. C: There are a great many 
things that need to be done over 
the next several years. We must 
build the endowment of the 
University and we must call on 
all those who care about the 
University to help do that. We 
need to continue to maintain and 
renew the physical facilities of 
the campus. We need to build on 
the strength of the three 
schools... and I believe that we 
will see, over the next several 
years, Susquehanna's character 
as a place in which students and 
faculty are very much involved 
with each other... will continue 
and will in fact become stronger. 
The next ten years will be de- 
manding times in all of higher 
education... as the number of 18 
year olds continues to decline. It 
is quite possible that Susquehan- 
na will be some smaller in 1995 
than it is now, but we've got to 
work to be sure that it is stronger. 
This will require us to concen- 
trate heavily on quality, make 
some tough decisions, be prudent 
with our resources, and also to 
move ahead, to take some risks 
and be sure that the University is 
stronger when we come to 1 995... 
Ed.: From a more physical 
standpoint, such as the cafeteria, 
we've heard plans of redoing it. 
Are they just rumor? 

P. G: Well, there are indeed 
plans. We had hoped to have new 
furnishings, tables and chairs, in 
the cafeteria this fall. Before do- 
ing that, we asked an architect to 
do an overall plan of where we 
might want to go in several 
years... So that, in buying new 
tables and chairs, we would not 
buy ones that would not fit into a 
longer range plan. However, 
when it got down to the task of 
actually choosing chairs, we look- 
ed at some samples and there 
were some problems with the first 

ones that we looked at. All kinds 
of choices (such as) should we 
choose wood or metal, should 
they be fabric or vinyl, what size 
should they be, should the tables 
be round or rectangular. We had 
a group that was working over 
the summer to try to resolve 
those questions... there were 
some pretty strong differences of 
opinion. We held up so that we 
could have full samples and have 
some experimentation. The cost 
of that will be somewhere around 
$70,000. We wanted to be sure 
that before we made that invest- 
ment, we had the choices that 
would work well in terms of the 
storage and the physical plant's 
needs, the use and attractiveness 
to students, and the usefulness 
for the cafeteria staff. 

Ed.: Is there a target date for 
these renovations? 

P. C: The Property and 
Finance Committee of the Board 
is going to look at the current 
round of samples... Well see 
what kind of reaction they have 
to those samples. I'd like to see 
the decision made within a 
month as to what well order, and 
then the actual delivery time will 
depend a great deal on how long 
it takes the manufacturers to... 
get the products to us. It could be 
in place by the start of the second 
semester, that would be great, but 
I wouldn't want to give anybody 
any assurances of that... 

Ed.: On a more personal level, 
how do you react to the article in 
The Crusader about the apples or 
other such "humorous" remarks? 

P. G: I loved it. I thought it 
was super. I even tried to figure 
out a way to give a reference to it 
in the talk 111 give on Sunday. 
Maybe raise the question as to 
whether it's possible for 
somebody with old-fashioned 
glasses and conservative suits to 
manage to be president of a 
university. No, it's fine. I think 
that kind of raising mischief with 
the president is quite appropriate 
and I enjoy it... My daughter, 
who is 12 years old, liked it 
especially well. She's not entirely 
sure that her father's choice of 
glasses and suits are ideal. So the 
fact that somebody else decided 
to tweak him about it suited her 
fine. I'd just as soon won the ap- 
ples, by the way. I was a, little 
worried that the fact that I had a 
big grin— the pictures were taken 
at halftime, the halftime score 
was 7-7. So, my smile was a little 
larger than it might have been 
had it actually been at the end of 
the game.

Friday, October 4, 1985— THE CRUSADER-Page 9 

John Auten, who died in 1981, 
was also an educator. He taught 
in the Sunbury and Shikellamy 
high schools for 39 years after 
graduating from Susquehanna in 

Athletically, he starred in both 
football and basketball. Auten 
was an end for the Crusader grid- 
ders when the Crusaders played 
teams like Penn State, Cornell, 
Army, and other major schools. 

Auten was the basketball 
coach and an assistant football 
coach at Sunbury High School 
during his career. He was also 
responsible for founding several 
sports leagues in the Sunbury 
area. He served as a basketball 
referee at the intercollegiate and 
semipro levels for many years. 

In 1979,- Auten was the reci- 
pient of the Milton Jarrett Nor- 
" man American Legion Post 201 
Citizen of the Year Award. He 
was a 50-year member of both 
the Zion Lutheran Church and 
Lodge 713 of the Free and Ac- 
cepted Masons, in Sunbury. 

Auten was represented by his 
son John M. Auten Jr. and his 
daughter Joan Auten. 

The Susquehanna University 
Sports Hall of Fame was founded 
in 1967 with 28 charter members. 
With this year's inductees, 
membership in the Hall of Fame 
has grown to 82. 

Eligibility is open to all athletes 
who competed at the inter- 
collegiate level and graduated 

from Susquehanna. Coaches who 
coached Crusaders for at least 
five years and other individuals 
who have been particularly sup- 
portive of the university's athletic 
programs are also eligible. 

The Hall of Fame is Sus- 
quehanna's way of recognizing 
those athletes, coaches, and other 
friends who have contributed 
significantly to the success of the 
university's overall athletic pro- 

The 1985 inductees to the Sus- 
quehanna University Sports Hall 
of Fame received their recogni- 
tion at halftime of last week's 
Homecoming game. The trio to 
enter this distinguished institu- 
tion are Chester G. Rowe of 
Selinsgrove; John H. Naegeli of 
Taylor; and the late John M. 
Auten of Sunbury. 

"Chet" Rowe is a 1952 alum- 
nus of Susquehanna. While a 
Crusader, he was a member of 
both the baseball and football 
teams. Rowe was known as an 
excellent third baseman and hit- 
ter and a tough player on the 

The Selinsgrove native remains 
active in the community as 
director of Guidance and Pupil 
Personnel in the local school 
district. He was also a very suc- 
cessful golf coach at Selinsgrove 
High School, where his teams 
won more than 30 straight 
matches in the mid 70s. He is also 
varsity baseball and basketball 

coach at the high school. 

Rowe is also a member of the 
Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania State, 
and National Education Associa- 
tions, and is a past president of 
the Susquehanna Valley School 
Counselors Association. 

The new inductee is also past 
commander of American Legion 
Victry Post No. 25 of Selinsgrove 
and a former church council 
member of Sharon Lutheran 

John Naegeli was an outstand- 
ing basketball player at Sus- 
quehanna. A member of the class 
of 1936, he led the Crusaders in 

scoring each of his four seasons. 
He also lettered in football and 

Naegeli holds a very unique 
distinction. He was a member of 
the Old Forge High School 
basketball team which won the 
state championship in 1932. Just 
21 years later, Naegeli coached 
the Yeadon High School to the 
Pennsylvania Interscholastic 
Athletic Association (P1AA) 
Class A title, making him one of 
few peopple to have played on 
and later coached a state cham- 
pionship club. 

At Yeadon, Naegeli coached 

Homecoming Parade 

A great way to start a beautiful 
fall day and get in the school 
spirit for Homecoming is to have 
a parade. Susquehanna's 
Homecoming parade brought 
everyone together as a whole to 
get involved in the spirit. With all 
the participation from the 
sororities, fraternities, bands, 
cheerleaders, and alumni, 
everyone was rowdy for the 
sports events. 

Despite the dreary day on Fri- 
day which delayed some of the 
float building, Saturday turned 
out to be a gorgeous day. All the 
floats came out looking proud. 
The judging of the five floats 
began at 10 a.m. As one looked 
around one could see all the in- 
volvement and anticipation of 
winning the contest. The floats 

Smith and Mayer Perform for SAC's Coffeehouse 

The acoustical guitar/singing 
duo Smith and Mayer opened up 
the 85-86 Coffeehouse season for 
the Student Activities Committee 
in the Crusader Castle last Tues- 
day. A small but enthusiastic 
crowd watched and listened while 

the two talented musician- 
songwriters played mostly 
original material, many of the 
songs being from their indepen- 
dent release, "In The Blend." 
John Smith and Hans Mayer 
showed their musical skill on the 

six and twelve string guitars, the 
mandolin, and the harmonica 
while their strong, yet melodic 
harmonies attested to their vocal 
skill. Their infectious brand of 
humor helped to lighten up the 
performance even more. SAC is 
strongly considering a repeat 
booking of what may have been 
the finest Coffeehouse act to ever 
hit the Susquehanna Campus. 

The Coffeehouse Season con- 
tinues in late October with Dave 
Rudolf, "Guilty of Entertain- 
ment." Check him out. 

Chaplain's Corner 

According to John Thalheimer — and he should know — the 
Weber Chapel Auditorium — that impressive structure tower- 
ing over the campus has something like 1504 seats. They are not 
filled every Sunday (understatement of the year) but we can 
report, and happily so, that some folks do show every Sunday 
morning at 1 1 for worship — and fellowship. Some of us would 
think it great if you perchance could be among them — and 
there is reason to believe that somewhere from heaven there 
could be a smile beaming toward you. Now that's a happy

Phi Sigma Kappa teaming up and 
doing a float of Pine Lawn, with 
President Cunningham and his 
wife sitting with a bushel of ap- 
ples, and at the other end of 
University Avenue were the 
Greek letters of both involved. 
Theta Chi and Sigma Kappa also 
teamed up to do a float repre- 
senting the Inauguration 
Ceremony. Kappa Delta was 
colorfully decorated with 
balloons and a small marching 
band, which was a mini parade. 
Sigma Phi Epsilon's float had a 
huge birthday cake and a party to 
celebrate the Inauguration with 
balloons and noisemakers. Alpha 
Delta Pi entered with an In- 
augural Ball theme with everyone 
dressed up and dancing. 

The winners of the float were:

with the Crusader Band and

playing plenty of music to get 
everyone psyched for Home-

of the alumni, the parade made a

everything. The parade started at 
the parking lot behind Weber

University Avenue while the 
crowd cheered everyone on. The 
parade turned at Keller's and pro- 
ceeded up Pine Street and finally 
ended at the Admission's office.

Homecoming Victory 

This past weekend the Sus- 
quehanna cross country team 
raced on their home course for 
the first time this year. The har- 
riers ran relentlessly against a 
long time rival, the Aggies of 
Delaware Valley. The Crusaders, 
running in front of the home 
crowd, devestated Del Val with a 
score of 15 to 49. An excellent 
performance was turned in by 
Jeff Walker, who had a strong 
finish for the team. This win 
brings the team's record up to 

Homecoming Disappointment 

The Crusaders lost yet another 
heartbreaker to the hands of the 
Delaware Valley Aggies on Sept. 
28, at Stagg Field. With the 
Homecoming crowd cheering, 
the Crusader gridders took the 
opening kickoff and marched 
down the field for an uncontested 
touchdown. The drive was 

highlighted by the running of 
Kevin Sinnot, Joseph Witt, and 
Kevin Weber, and the passing of 
quarterback Ken Hughes. 
Hughes connected with Witt on a 
fine pass play that put the 
• Crusaders at the Aggie five yard 
line. Two plays later Witt got the 
call and busted in from one yard 
out. The extra point was wide 
and the score was 6-0 in favor of 

Delaware Valley took the en- 
suing kickoff and drove the ball 
into Susquehanna territory. A 
holding penalty and an illegal 
procedure penalty against the Ag- 
gies backed them up to midfield. 
After allowing a 1 5 yard comple- 
tion, the Susquehanna defense 
tightened up. On fourth down 
and short, Aggie running back 
Jim Wilson was dropped by a 
host of fired-up* Crusaders. The 
two teams exchanged possessions 
and the first quarter ended 6-0. 

The second quarter opened 
with Ken Hughes completing a 
30 yard pass to wide receiver Rob 
Sochovka. This put Susquehanna 
in Aggie territory at the 45 yard 
line. An illegal procedure call and 
two incomplete passes forced the 
Crusaders to punt and Delaware 
Valley took over deep in their 
own territory. Led by the strong 
running of Wilson and teammate 
Joe Bello, the Aggies moved right 
down the field to the two yard 
line. With 6:41 left in the half, 

Bello took it in to give Delaware 
Valley the lead, 7-6. On Sus- 
quehanna's next series of downs, 
a Hughes pass was intercepted by 
free safety Bob D'Arpa. Several 
plays later, after fine runs by 
Wilson, Bello, and quarterback 
Walt Kobrynski, the Aggies 
scored on a one yard quarterback 
keeper. The extra point was good 
and the score at the half was 
14-6, in favor of Delaware 

The second half saw Sus- 
quehanna's defense putting the 
stopper on the Aggies' initial 
drive. After a fine punt by 
Delaware Valley's Dave Handler, 
Susquehanna took aim at tying 
the contest. Hughes began by 
completing a pass to Sinnot for a 
first down. Then, several plays 
later, Hughes found Al Bucci on 
a 70 yard touchdown strike that 
brought life into the silenced Sus- 
quehanna crowd. The two-point 
conversion try was good on a 
pass from Hughes to Sochovka, 
and the score was deadlocked at 

The score stayed tied until 
Delaware Valley took the ball 
from their own 40 yard line, 
following a Bryan Ravitz' punt, 
and drove the ball to the Sus- 
quehanna 19 yard line. From 
there Kobrynski found tight end 
Brian Breneman for a touchdown 
strike and a lead Delaware Valley 
would not relinquish. 

Susquehanna took over and 
found trouble. On a third down 
play, from their own territory, 
Hughes was intercepted for the 
third time in the game by the 
same man, D'Arpa. From the 
Susquehanna 32 yard line, Aggie 
running back Sean Cliver broke 
loose on a 1 5 yard run, to the Sus- 
quehanna 17. With 14:14 left in

the ballgame Bello ran it in from 
eight yards out. The extra point 
was no good and the Aggie lead 
was 27-14. 

Things were looking pretty dim 
until the Crusaders recovered a 
fumble at their own 40 yard line, 
with 6:21 left in the game. On a 
must play, fourth and six from 
the Aggie 39 yard line, Hughes 
found Sochovka on a 30 yard 
pass play that would make Brad 
shaw and Swann smile. Then, 
several plays later, Sochovka 
made a finger tip catch on 
another fourth down pass, this 
one for a touchdown. The extra 
point was good and Susquehanna 
was down 27-2 1 with just under a 
minute remaining. The Cru- 
saders' on side kick attempt was 
recovered by the Aggies and 
Kobrynski just wound out the 
clock for the 27-21 Delaware 
Valley victory.

kickoff slated for 1:30 p.m.

Back on Track 

The Lady Crusaders were off 
to a slow start this past week. On 
opening day, the varsity hockey 
team was surprised by the efforts 
of the Lycoming Warriors. Sus- 
quehanna could not get the old 
act together in time and lost 1-0. 
Ruth Jones and Candy Lain com- 
bined defensive efforts which en- 
titled each of them 'best defense'. 
Felicia "chip" McClymont was 
named best offensive player of 
the game. 

The sticklers gave it another 
shot against the tough opponent, 
Scranton. Skill-wise, both teams 
were matched up and the game 
was played smoothly. Sue Bailey 
led the team defensively by 
breaking up many plays in the 
defending twenty-five yards. This 
earned her the defensive player of 
the game. However, the Lady 
Crusaders could not locate their 
own goals and lost 2-0. 

All hope was not given up. The 
Crusaders faced Marywood on 
Homecoming, and as luck would 
find it the sticklers found the 
goal! Nice going! Gidget Moyer 
broke the barrier mid-way 
through the first half and from 
that point on the Crusaders 
played their brand of hockey. 
The team worked together and at 
the final whistle, they had beaten 
Marywood 5-0. Moyer had a hat- 
trick, Jean Flaherty and Felicia 
McClymont teamed up for the re- 
maining two goals. 

The Lady Crusaders appreciate 
all the support they have gotten 
this past week and hope that it 
continues throughout the season. 
Thanks to the Sports Awareness 
project for helping out in pro- 
moting the field hockey team. 

Tomorrow, the sticklers hit the 
road to match their wits against 
Juniata. Finally in the words of 
winger Liz Kelly, "Wham it!!!" 

New DUI Laws 

Whether or not you live in this 
state, all students currently 
attending Pennsylvania univer- 
sities should become familiar 
with Pennsylvania's new DUI 
law. Significant changes have 
been made, and the major points 
are as follows: 

1.) Police must have a 
reasonable suspicion of DUI and 
prior to arrest may require a 
driver to submit to a pre-arrest 
breath test (PBT) on an approved 
device to determine if a DUI ar- 
rest should be made. 

2.) It is unlawful for a driver 
to consume any alcohol or con- 
trolled substance while in the act 
of driving a motor vehicle. 

3.) Police or other qualified 
person may give one or more 
tests of blood, breath or urine. 
Refusal— 12 months suspension. 

4.) If probable cause exists to 
believe there is a violation of 
DUI, a physician, or his designee 
shall take a blood sample and sub- 
mit it for testing. 

5.) The presiding judicial of- 
ficer (district justice) at the 
preliminary hearing or pre- 
liminary arraignment may not 
reduce or modify a DUI charge. 

6.) A new "per se" section has 
been added and the Com- 
monwealth need only prove the 
defendant drove a vehicle when 
the amount of alcohol in the 
blood was .10 percent or greater. 

7.) DUI now is a misde- 
meanor 2— maximum $5,000 
and two years imprisonment. 

8.) Mandatory minimum 
sentences for DUI of- 
fenders—mandatory minimum 

Be a Fish 

The long awaited return of the 
"Commander" has come and 
soon the Susquehanna swimmers 
and divers will be back in the 
pool. The teams held a short 
meeting last week to organize 
money-making, projects for the 
season. The teams will be selling 
hoagies on Wednesday and 
Thursday nights during the first 
semester. The proceeds of these 
sales will be used to allow both 
teams to go south to train during 
semester break. 

The teams will once again be 
led by coach Ged Schweikert. 
Last year the men's team set and 
reset 10 school records 15 times, 
while the women, not to be out- 
done, set and reset 7 school 
records 11 times. The women's 
team, captained by Diann Doelp 
and Amy Summerfield, will 
return 7 varsity letter winners. 
With the addition of talented 
freshmen and transfers, the 
women hope to improve upon 
last year's record of 5-1. The 
men's team, captained by Lee 
Kipp and Tom Kauffman, lost 
four key members to graduation, 
but will be returning 6 varsity let- 
ter winners. They also will be 
hoping to improve on their record 
of 64 with the addition of some 
new faces. If anyone is interested 
in swimming or diving for either 
team, contact Coach Schweikert 
(ext. 299). The first practice is 
Oct. 9, at 4:15. So until then buy

ROGER BLOUGH Karrthl Lecture 

January 19, 1904 - 

Susquehanna University is sad- 
dened to announce the death 
yesterday of Roger M. Blough, 
truly one of its most illustrious 
alumni, in Hawley, Penn- 

A graduate with the class of 
1925, Roger Blough later earned 
a law degree from the Yale Law 
School and had a distinguished 
career with the Wall Street law 
firm of White & Case, and then 
with the United States Steel Cor- 
poration, for which he served as 
Chairman of the Board and chief 
executive officer. 

A former chairman also of the 
Council for Financial Aid to 
Education, Mr. Blough was a 
leading spokesman for both 
American industry and higher 
education. He was vice chairman 
of the Susquehanna University 
Board of Directors for a number 
of years and an active leader in 
fund campaigns and other 
endeavors of his Alma Mater. A 
generous philanthropist, he spon- 
sored the Roger M. Blough Loan 
Fund at Susquehanna, which was 
joined by the Roger M. Blough 
Scholarship Fund, established in 
his name with a $150,000 grant 

October 8, 1985 

from the U.S. Steel Foundation. 

Mr. Blough was conferred with 
Susquehanna's honorary Doctor 
of Laws degree in 1953 and won 
the Alumni Award for Achieve- 
ment in 1958. In 1974, the Board 
of Directors named the Roger M. 
Blough Learning Center in his 
honor. Three years ago, all his 
personal and business papers, as 
well as his many medals and 
prestigious awards of various 
kinds, were deposited in the 

Mr. Blough was married to the 
former Helen Decker, living in 
Hawley. Two married daughters 
and six grandchildren also sur- 

We understand that a 
memorial service is planned for 
1 1 a.m. on Saturday, October 12, 
at the First Presbyterian Church 
in Hawley. In lieu of flowers, 
donations are suggested to either 
the Heart Fund, the First 
Presbyterian Church of Hawley, 
the Roger M. Blough Learning 
Center, or the Helen Decker 
Blough Library in Hawley.

SU and Japan Sign Pact 

Something happened yesterday 
and today that is going to change 
SU. President Cunningham and 
three distinguished guests from 
Senshu University, Tokyo, 
Japan, signed an agreement 
which will enable students from 
both Universities to attend the 
other University. You might 
have seen them touring the cam- 
pus. Among the group was Dr. 
Cunningham, President of SU, 
Dr. Masayoshi Deushi, Chair- 
man of the Committee for Inter- 
national Exchange and Dean of 
the School of Business Ad- 
ministration, Professor 
Yoshiyuki Oshima, Dean of the 
School of Literature, Member of 
the Committee for International 
Exchange, and Professor Nario 
Takemura, Member of the Com- 
mittee for International Ex- 

During the spring of 1984 the 
university had a visiting professor 
of accounting from Senshu 
University. Professor Sakurai 
was here a total of six weeks. Last 
February Mr. Takemura, from 
the field of information systems, 

was here for one week. Early in 
June Dean Bellas, Dean of the 
Sigmund Weis School of 
Business, went to Japan to help 
draft the agreement which was 
reviewed and signed during the 
past couple of days. 

Senshu University is a large 
private institute of learning 
located in Tokyo, Japan. The 
23,000 students can study from 
such schools as the School of 
Literature, School of Business 
Administration, School of Com- 
merce, School of Economics, and 
the School of Law. With this new 
agreement that was signed a SU 
student who qualifies may study 
in one of these schools. 

SU and the University of 
Nebraska are the only two 
schools in the United States that 
have such an agreement with 
Senshu University. The ad- 
ministration and the faculty are 
proud to be a part of this new 
program and the student body 
will soon follow. This program 
will give those who participate a 
better understanding of Japan.

Cliff Robertson Visits SU 

Cliff Robertson will be speak- 
ing this weekend at Susquehan- 
na, in Seibert Auditorium. The 
first Karniol Arts Endowment 
Series Lecture will be held Satur- 
day evening, October 12, at 7 
p.m. The lecture will be open to 
the public, and admission is free. 
He will discuss the theatre and 
film industries and his career. 

Robertson is an actor and 
director. You may be familiar 
with him from his acting in 
"Charly" and "P.T. 109." He also 
starred, wrote, and directed 
"C.W. Coop." "Charly" will be 
shown this Friday at 4:30 in the 
campus center and at 8 p.m. in 
Faylor Lecture Hall. 

Among Mr. Robertson's acting 
awards, in addition to the 
Academy Award, are the Na- 
tional Film Review Board award 
for "Best Actor in a leading role"; 
a National Association of Televi- 
sion Arts & Sciences (Emmy) 
award for "Best Actor in a 
leading role", and the "Theatre 
World Award" for his work on 

Mr. Robertson has always 
maintained an independent 
creative posture within the film 
industry. Indeed, it was he who 
revealed major crimes at the 
highest corporate levels of the 
film industry in the infamous 
"Hollywoodgate" scandal. As a 
result of his stand against power- 
ful and corrupt forces he was 
honored with a special com- 

mendation by the Screen Actors 
Guild of America and his article 
in the New York Times concern- 
ing the scandal was published in 
the Congressional Record. 

Mr. Robertson spends a good 
deal of his spare time with 
numerous charities, particularly 
with the Juvenile Diabetes 
Foundation and the Mental 
Health Association. He was also 

the 1984 National Chairman of 
the American Cancer Society. 

Mr. Robertson will appear at 
Susquehanna through his friend- 
ship with William Karniol who 
established the Hilda Karniol En- 
dowment for the Arts in honor of 
his mother, the prominent Sun- 
bury, Pa., artist who taught 
painting at the university for 16 

Humanities Department Receives Grant 

The Humanities Department is 
proud to announce that they 
have just received a grant of 
$134,672 from the National En- 
dowment of Humanities (NEH) 
which will be used over the next 
three years toward developing a 
stronger, tighter, and more 
demanding Humanities program. 

Dr. Hans Feldmann, Professor 
of English and Head of the_, 
English Department, is the Pro- 
ject Director of the distribution 
of the grant. Assisting him will be 
Dr. Kamber, Dean of Fine Arts, 
Dr. Blessing, Vice President of 
Development, and Dr. Kirkland, 
Vice President of University 

The grant will assist the 
humanities program in two ways: 

1) In developing new and re- 
vised courses in Humanities, 
especially to meet the re- 
quirements of the University's 
new Core. 


2) To help support a new 
tenure track position in the 
Modern Languages. 

The six core courses which the 
money will be used for are: One 
course in Western Literature, 
taught by humanities faculty and 
taken by all students; one course 
in Values; two courses in Critical 
Thinking and Writing; one 
course in Alternative Futures; 
and a capstone seminar for 
seniors in Humanities. 

The Humanities program also 
proposes to add a new position in 
Foreign Language to assist in 
revitalizing the teaching of 
Modern Languages. This will 
help to meet the challenge of 
Susquehanna's new Foreign 
Language requirement while en- 
suring the continuing participa- 
tion of the Modern Language 
Department in the work of the 
Humanities as a whole. They are 
also encouraging the study of 

Classical Languages. 

This is the second major grant 
the Humanities Program of Sus- 
quehanna has received within the 
past three years. The first grant 
was received in 1983, when Sus- 
quehanna was chosen out of 37 
national colleges. The money 
from that grant has been going 
towards several goals: 1) Endow 
library for humanities holdings, 

2) Endow visiting professorship 
in the Humanities program and 

3) The installation of the 
language lab in the Blough Learn- 
ing Center, which has already 
been completed. With the com- 
bination of both grants and Sus 
quehanna's match they have 
received over $900,000. 

The Humanities department is 
looking forward to working on 
this project and getting the best 
possible use out of the grant 
toward student education.

The Phenolumn 

by Doug Chamberlin 


For over a month now, 
another "improvement" to the 
campus has been under construc- 
tion. I understand that it is a 
memorial to a TKE brother and 
that is has been donated to the 
University (hence none of our tui- 
tion money is being spent on it). 

What I would like to know is, 
why is this project taking so long 
to complete? The only work that 
I've seen completed is the installa- 
tion of three lamps, the laying of 
three foundations, and the 
delivery of stacks of cinder 
blocks. Nothing has been done 
since the delivery of the cinder 
blocks two weeks ago. 

This project is an eyesore to 
the campus at the moment. The 
foundations are being buried 
under mud during each rainfall. 
There is a "cow path" where 
students have killed the grass 
alongside the snow fence next to 
Steele Hall. It is a nuisance to the 
entire campus community. 

I would like to see this 
memorial completed as soon as 
possible (by Parents' Weekend?). 
I'm tired of looking at mud pud-

"Star Wars" 

Is "Star Wars" truly a "Uto- 
pian Dream?" In this world of 
ever expanding nuclear 
weaponry and increasing tension 
between the two super powers, is 
S.D.I, a solution? S.D.I. , 
"Strategic Defense Initiative" was 
proposed by President Ronald 
Reagan in a national telecast on 
March 23, 1983 as a solution to 
M.A.D., "Mutually Assured 

Destruction" and as a hope for 
"Mutually Assured Survival" 
with an elimination of today's 
nuclear weaponry. 

However, the Soviet Union 
sees this, not as a "Utopian 
Dream" as President Reagan 
describes it, but rather as an 
"Ominous Threat." The Kremlin 
leaders can not, in the forseeable 
future, give up their ultimate 
weapons, as military strength is 
both the symbol and substance of 
their power, and the major com- 
pensation for their many 
weaknesses. Instead, as a counter 
action to S.D.I., they will con- 
tinue to increase their vast 
military stock of nuclear 
weaponry. As Georgi Arbatov, 
director of Moscow's Institute for 
the Study of the U.S.A. and 
Canada, said, "If you start to 
build "Star Wars," we will be 
obliged to build new nuclear 
weapons and more of them, 
which can penetrate your defen- 
sive shield." Is this not what the 
A.B.M., "Anti-Ballistic Missiles" 
treaty, signed by President Nixon 
and Soviet Prime Minister 
Aleksei Kosygin in 1972, was 
meant to prevent? This treaty 
was designed to strictly restrict 
defensive weaponry which in 
turn would reduce the need for 
offensive weaponry. But now 
S.D.I, threatens to disrupt this 
delicate balance. If the U.S.A. 
does deply an A.B.M. system 
such as S.D.I., the U.S.S.R. will 
undoubtedly deploy a similar 
system. At the same time they 
will also continue to build up 
their offensive nuclear weapon in 
addition to new nuclear anti- 
satellite systems designed to

XL "All the President's Lenses 



Let's Stop Making Fun of Dr. Cunningham's Glasses 

A great deal of editorial com- 
mentary has recently surfaced 
concerning what seems to be the 
new conversational fad on cam- 
pus these days, namely Dr. Joel 
Cunningham's eyeglasses. While 
a handful of such public com- 
ments have been tastefully 
presented and were, perhaps, 
based in fact, I feel the great ma- 
jority of these all-too-abundant 
quips have been inappropriate 
and nonsensical smears on the in- 
tegrity of Susquehanna's leader- 
ship. As sincere an occasion as 
this school's inauguration 
weekend has no place whatsoever 
for snide remarks like: "This 
president presented by the glass 
of 1985," or... "J. Cunningham: 
Behind the looking-glass wall." If 
we are to be fair to ourselves, we 
are to be fair to our superiors. Let 
us, therefore, examine some of 
the points concerning "all the 
president's lenses." 

First of all why do we feel the 
need to verbally attack the man's 
glasses? Are they annoying to 
look at? I doubt this! While I 
have heard hundreds of com- 
ments humorously describing 
them, not one comment in the en- 
tire bunch suggests that he 
change to more contemporary 
eyewear. Then pehaps we 
students find them cruel and 
without liveliness? Again, pro- 
bably not, because all too often a 
heartwarming grim accompanies 
the spectacles wherever they go. 

Our Corner 

It has been said that we at The 
Crusader should stir up some 
controversy. Well, we're not 
adverse to some muck-raking, but 
unless someone responds, the 
muck will settle and look like that 
disgrace between Fisher and 
Steele. In an effort to get the ball 
rolling and the tempers flaring 
(and the cliches flying), 111 sug- 
gest a topic or two for debate. 

The first is mentioned above. 
Rumor has it that the word on 
the street and through the 
grapevine and over hill and dale 
is that the project was started 
before a contractor was found. 
Now, with no contract signed 
and puddles forming questions 
are being asked. An addition tid- 
bit is that perhaps they were look- 
ing to get the job done for free as 

The fault probably lies not in 
our star but in ourselves. Perhaps 
we envy his dedication to himself: 
many of us would probably like 
to dress in a way which is more 
suited to our style but are 
pressured into wearing annoying 
contacts, trying rimless lenses or 
blindness by our friends. I would 
bet that those old glasses, unlike 
most of what we now wear, are 
virtually maintenance-free and 
the change to newer cheap ones 
would only give our overworked 
president even more hassles. We 
wear jeans because they don't rip 
and sneakers because they never 
wear out, so why not indestructo- 
shades too? 

Or maybe some of us pick on 
them simpply because we are 
jealous! As old-fashioned as they 
may look, those style glasses are 
quickly finding their way into 
modern fashion. Thick black 
frames are suddenly selling for 
$15 to $20 in Spencer's and 
Bamberger's along with big suits, 
slightly wrinkles shirts, wider ties 
and Dippity-Doo. Hmmm... 
Perhaps we feel that fashion has 
been tricking us all along and that 
Dr. Cunningham has been quiet- 
ly sitting back waiting for us to 
catch up with him. Hmmm... 

Whatever the motives behind 
the snideness, the fact remains 
that Dr. C. has not given in to the 
demands of abandoning his 
"baby binoculars." Why? Some 

Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus 

a tax write-off for some company. 
What is the scoop, the dirt, the 
facts, the real story? 

How about TMI? That messy 
issue on an island in Middletown, 
which happens to be three miles 
long. What the hell is he talking 
about, you ask? I mean the 
restart of the nuclear power plant 
near Harrisburg (in case you've 
been hibernating for the last six 
years). The opinion among the 
staff is pretty well split. If no one 
wants to argue, I guess our little 
family will. However, we don't 
like to fight because Mom and 
Dad get mad. I can't help in- 
stigating, though: some of us say 
shut down all the plants until 
they figure out how to dispose of 
the waste, to which others of us 
reply, let's use nuclear power now 
and conserve our dwindling 
resources. What do you say? 

Enough questions, let's get 
some answers. Ill be sitting at my 
desk with my feet propped up 
waiting for a few sharply worded 
letters to the editor. By the way, 
those letters should be typed, 
double-spaced, and signed, 
although we will withhold the 
name upon request. Until then, 
don't take any wooden nickels 
(had to get one more in). 

experts say that their pragmatic 
value is their only redeeming 
quality. In addition to the point 
of their being "Indestructo 
brand" eyepieces, the fact re- 
mains that such thick lenses must 
have great magnification 
capabilities! Everyone who 
graduates summa cum laude with 
a double major (like Dr. Cun- 
ningham) has a good pair of 
reading glasses permanently at- 
tached. In addition, there is also 
the possibility that they serve as a 
protection device. (They may 
even be bullet-proof.) A president 
can never be too safe! 

Image may also be a factor. 
Most college presidents have a 
certain "look" in common that is 
almost a copyrighted trademark. 
Grey suits, greased hair, and 
black glasses are to the American 
college president what ripped 
white tee-shirts are to the 
American pizzeria worker. From 
our point of view, Dr. Cun- 
ningham dresses exactly how we 
expect our college president to 
dress. And it works, too! How 
many of you can remember what 
kind of glasses the other S.U. 
presidential candidates wore? 
Let's face it; if Joel were to wear 
Foster-Grant mirror lenses and 
sleek, tight black pin-stripe suits 
we would have Steve McGarrett 
of "Hawaii Five-O" running our 
university and we'd expect every 
presidential eech to end with... 
"Book him, Dano, Murder One!" 

At any rate, what is all the fuss 
about? The Susquehanna public 
should be fully adjusted to what 
their leader wears on his face, see- 
ing that such glasses are actually 
everywhere and commonly 
presented. Woody Allen, Dick 
Tracy, and Clark Kent (not to 
mention thousands of welders 
across the country) all share Cun- 
ningham's rather overpublicized 
shades. It's about time for us to 
stop picking on poor Dr. Cun- 
ningham and, if we must, at least 
find a pet peeve about somebody 
else to harp on, such as Murray 
Hunt's boots or Dr. Grosse's om- 
nipresent bicycle. 

In these times of cynicism and 
rumor it can become quite conve- 
nient to overlook the man and 
view our new president as just an 
exaggerated pair of black glasses 
with an optional body attached. 
We must not. By simple observa- 
tion it is evident that we are deal- 
ing with a man who is very in- 
telligent, willing to work hard, 
easy-going, and interested in be- 
ing with students. A person's 
values should be remembered 
long after their glasses. So if we 
return for 1999 homecoming and 
visit Cunningham Hall with it's 
spectacular 200 foot high fascade 
of shining glass panes and sturdy 
black marble columns, then 
maybe the little pair of old black 
plastic rims and 5 millimeter 
lenses that Joel will still be wear- 
ing won't turn quite as many

Game Playing and Artificial Intelligence 

The following article was writ- 
ten as part of The Data File, a 
monthly newsletter published by 
CEPACC. CEPACC stands for 
CEntral Pennsylvani A Computer 
Club, and is a computer project 
on campus who sponsors a week- 
ly users' group meeting at 7:30 
p.m. every Thursday night. All 
interested users' of computers are 
welcome to attend. The meetings 
are held in the seminar room 202 
in Steele Hall. 

Game playing has held a great 
fascination for artificial in- 
telligence researchers. For as long 
as there have been computers, 
there have been game playing 
programs. One of the first tic-tac- 
toe games was written in 1953. 
By the 1960's, Arthur Samuel 
had written the first significant 
game playing programs. His pro- 
gram played checkers and, 
besides merely playing the game, 
it "learned" from its mistakes and 
improved its technique. It soon 
became a better checkers player 
than Samuel, and eventually 
became the best player in the 

There are many reasons why 
game playing has been used to ex- 
amine machine intelligence: It is , 

assumed that game playing re- 
quires a degree of "cleverness"; It 
is easy to assess the success or 
failure of a program; It was 
believed that games did not re- 
quire large amounts of 
knowledge; And, more and more 
complex games could be tested as 
techniques became more and 
more sophisticated. 

The belief that games did not 
require large amounts of 
knowledge turned out, it was • 
quickly found, to be very wrong. 
Game playing programs need 
vast amounts of knowledge. 
Therefore, a way of determining 
a good tactic is needed. An 
evaluation function f(s) can be 
used to measure the "goodness" 
of moves in the game. In 
Samuel's checkers program, the 
coefficients of the function were 
allowed to change if a tactic 
proved to be good or bad. Unfor- 
tunately, this technique does not 
work for more complex games, 
such as chess. Other techniques 
have been developed, such as 
mini-max and alpha beta (which I 
will not expand upon in this arti- 
cle), to play these games. Still, the 
best chess programs cannot beat 
world class players.

Game playing techniques have 
been an important part of AI 
research. However, the impor- 
tance is greatly diminishing as the 
techniques are refined and more 

important AI questions arise. Yet 
the problems of games allow for 
the investigation of thinking of 
machines and of humans.

It's Greek to Us 


Greetings from 593! We hope 
everyone had a prosperous week 
and weekend! We'd like to start 
off this week by asking Jeff D. 
why he's been in such a good 
mood lately. 

Dave and Eric would like to 
thank all the people who made 
their birthday party a more than 
large success. 

The brothers would like to 
thank the Sisters of Sigma Kappa 
(again) for making Saturday night 
worth staying concious for. Our 
cookout with the Freshmen went 
well on Saturday, I'm sure 
everyone recovered from the 
wounds incured at the Ultimate 

Speaking of cookouts, our little 
sisters had a wonderful time at 
the Overlook. Thanks to out to 
our Chef, Cindy, who had to put 
up with all those hungry people. 
We had lots of fun throwing 
acorns around, and I still think 
we should have thrown The 
Duke over the cliff. 

In closing, the brothers would 
like to say, "Freshmen, get ready 
to test your quickness Saturday." 

Little sisters, get ready for 
what is ahead. 

Submitted carefully, 

The Slummers 

"Mr. Cook, get those things off 

your face!" 


Hey now! 6 weeks by the 
board. First off, the brothers and 
little sisters of Phi Mu Delta 
would like to congratulate and 
welcome aboard our six new up- 
perclassmen pledges. They are: 
Greg Jerrihian, Joe Wolfe, Brian 
Kahan, Pete Digiacomo, Charles 
Buckley, and Tom Moore. Enjoy 
one of the best experiences of 
your lives, guys. Also a belated 
congrats to Jennifer Miller and 
Eric Ector on becoming little 
sisters President and Vice Presi- 
dent respectively. Sorry it was so 
late ladies. Speaking of little 
sisters, we're looking forward to 
the pre-football game party and 
barbecue afterwards. Hope you 
wonderful gals are. 

Also this weekend we look for- 
ward to the party with Sigma 
Kappa and of course there's 
brothers Dooey and Topher in 
their games tomorrow. Good 
luck guys. Going back to last 

week we'd like to thank Kappa 
Delta for a ballsy party Friday. 
And of course who could forget 
Vernons quote of the week. "But 
I do believe that Shame likes it 
better on Thanksgiving." To see 
the first of a new series, "the 
quote" is hanging up in the fun 

Other random notes include a 
nice off the porch move by our 
own Curtis. It was relieving to see 
that Brucy's girl finally sprouted 
some legs. Lackowitz had an ear 
to ear smile, which was nice to 
see. To Wad, Lumber, Rux and 
Curtis, only in Pa. do we see such 
ridiculous commercials. I know 
that we don't have those laughers 
in Jersey. Maybe some day we 
can go to a tractor pull. "Ha" As 
far as the AOW award for this 
week, it went to Paul Pumpkin 
Christensen unanimously. The 
one and only reason being that, 
"This is really good for me, I'm 
serious its really good for me." 

It was a sad Sunday evening at 
the Mudhouse as the Giants fell 
victim to Russias team, the 
Cowboys. The Jints are now 3-2 
but Calve and Dooey still have 
reservations for the Super Bowl. 
On a final note we'd like to 
thank Alpha Delta Pi for letting 
us host their initiation party. 
Congratulations to the new 
sisters. You girls can party at the 
Mudhouse anytime, anywhere, 

P.S. There are a billion people 
in China who don't care what 
you are doing right now.

Dooety & Shadow 


How's it going? I hope 
everyone had a great week and 
are looking forward to a great 

Kappa Delta would like to 
thank the brothers of Phi Mu 
Delta for the party last Friday. 
As usual we had a great time, 
thanks guys! 

Last weekend I was fortunate 
enough to have had the oppor- 
tunity to visit the Kappa Deltas 
at Cornell University and they 
gave me something that was 
passed out on their campus about 
Greek and campus participation 
and I thought I would share it 
with you: 

Group Therapy for 


or the "binge-purge eating disorder" will be offered 
beginning October 14 by 


This disorder consists of compulsive eating followed by 
vomiting, taking laxatives or fasting. The goal of this group will 
be to assist its members to overcome this disorder by: 

— teaching techniques in self-control. 

— seeking insight into individual causes of this problem. 

— understanding the dilemmas created by this problem. 

— seeking ways to better deal with expression of inner feel- 
ings and personal conflicts. 

For Registration and further information write or 
phone Dr. Brink at 202 S. Second St., Lewisburg, 
Pa. 5230023

On a lighter note, happy birth- 
day to all our October babes: Lisa 
Waldeyer, Lynda Butler, 
McGints, Barb Nolan, Stephanie 
Foglia and Jill Roberts. Barb, 
McGints, and Jill will be hitting 
that magic number of 21, so 
watch out everyone. 

Lastly, Jennifer, a snap a day 
will keep the buttons away; Gail, 
next time please just come home; 
Kerry Anne we are definitely go-

But I'm so confident I'm sane

So how can you explain 
shadows in the rain?"

Time is flying by! Before you 
realize it well be graduating! 
(Don't I wish!) But for now let's 
live for the weekend and the get- 
together well be having with the 
Brothers of Phi Mu Delta. We 
look forward to a "ballsy" time to 
be had by all (Best of Luck to you 
Dooey and the rest of the team 
against Widener tomorrow!). 
Speaking of having a ballsy time, 
Saturday night's surprise party 
was definitely a surprise for Sue 
Franchi on her 21st: thanks to 
Rabbit and Company. A special 
day like that should not go by un- 
noticed, right Sue?! Gotta love 
that fan! Not that bad coming up 
here after all, huh? 

As far as birthdays go, Karen 
Buchanan and Heather "Mo" 
McRoberts will be celebrating 
theirs this coming week. If you 
see them, wish them a very ahppy 

I leave you with this serious 

A real friend is one who will re- 
main a friend forever. Being a

The Zeta's would like to thank 
the brother of Lambda for their 
party on Friday night. Next time 
well plan a little better so you 
can have a "real" rematch with 
our "cups" team. Even though 
the turnout was not so great we 
had a blast. And yes, Leslie, we 
were picking on you! 

Well, Kathy it was an 
awesome weekend for you!! 
Leslie and Kathy got really batty 
after the rugby game on Satur- 
day. Maybe next time Kathy will 
be the tackier instead of getting 
tackled? Oh, and don't forget, the 
biggest news, to wish Kathy and 
Andy a belated one year anniver- 

Speaking of Delations. . .1 
would personally like to wish Sue 
Rahal a happy, happy belated 
birthday. Everyone make a point 
of wishing her a good one. 

Thanks to the sisters of Alpha 
Delta Pi, we had some great exer- 
cise on Thursday night at the 
volleyball game. Could we have a 
rematch sometime soon? 

Don't forget that there is an 
unofficial trip to Mansfield on 
Saturday. It should be fun to see 
our future sisters again. 

Well, Phi Sig, it will be great to 
put our prize money to a good 
cause. Hopefully, the party 
planned for tonight will be a fun 
time. See ya' there.

Have you noticed the posters 
hanging around campus listing all 
the home varsity sports events? 
Or how about those banners go- 
ing down the wall by the steps in 
the campus center wishing luck 
to the individual teams? Well 
thats just a small part of what the 
Sports Awareness Project is all 

Our purpose is to make the 
campus aware of the sporting 
events going on around campus 
each week. We also to increase 
the attendance at these events by 
holding target games as a way of 
promoting the event. Our most 
recent target game was held at a 
hockey game where we offered 
free doughnuts and juice to all 
the spectators. You can also find 
Sports Awareness people selling 
refreshments at all home football 

Within the next couple of 
weeks we will be having a "Best 
Legs Contest" for the soccer 
players. You can vote for the 
player with the nicest legs and if 
your guy wins you might have a 
chance to win a twenty dollar gift 
certificate for the Susquehanna 
Inn, but you must be present at 
the soccer game in order to win. 

The Sports Awarness Project is 
located at 312 University Ave. 
Our ext. is 302. So if you or any 
of your friends have any ideas for 
us, just give us a ring or get in 
touch with our advisor, Coach 

Kriesler Appointed Counselor 

Friday, October 11, 1985— THE CRUSADER-Page 5 

Did you ever feel like things 
were really getting you down? 
Sometimes it is nice to know 
there's someone there, outside of 
your family or friends, who's 
willing to listen to your problems 
about college relationships, or 
even your future. Well, now you 
can go see Dr. Alan Kriesler, the 
new Director of Counseling. Dr. 
Kriesler, who started last Mon- 
day, has taken over the position 
of Ron Jackson, who left over the 

Dr. Kriesler received his B.S., 
M.A., and PhD. from the Univer- 
sity of California at Davis. For 
the past three years he has been 

wants to know what the students 
want out of counseling, and to 
try to get them involved in help- 
ing others. 

Dr. Kriesler also added that he 
has, "been there himself," having 
originally dropped out of college 
to sell magazines door to door 
and be in rock bands, for seven 
years before going back for his 
degrees. He feels he can ap- 
preciate the problems of college 
and the variety of experiences 
students go through. So next time 
you want to talk... his office is in 
the top floor of the campus 
center, across from the cafeteria. 
Why don't you drop in? 

working as a psychologist at 
Selinsgrove Center, as well as 
part-time counseling and therapy 
in several local clinics. 

Dr. Kriesler will be helping out 
with FORCE, as well as working 
with the RA's to help them be 
better "front-line helpers'' for the 
students in dormitories. He also 
hopes to hold workshops and 
group counseling sessions in addi- 
tion to the individual counseling 
services he offers to all students. 

"I'd like to make this position 
as un-stuffy as possible," stresses 
Dr. Kriesler. He'd like to have 
students just drop in to talk about 
projects or career ideas they 
might have... or just to talk. He

universities. Manuscripts should 
be 1 500-2000 words in length and 
focus on the topic "Quality of 
Life in the Accounting Profes-

An evening with 



The first 
Karniol Arts 

here at SU and embarked upon a 
weekend of fun-filled adventure! 
The group went on their first of 
two F.T.X. weekends (field train- 
ing exercises)- one which they 
will never forget. Activities on 
Saturday included repelling for 
freshmen cadets, while 
sophomores and juniors spent the 
day and night finding their way 
through the forest using only a 
compass for guidance and firing 
M16 rifles!! To top off the 
weekend, Sunday, this SU crew 
of brave students set out to con- 
quer a 1 Vz mile obstacle course, 
set up by the senior cadets, which 
each cadet finished successfully! 
In fact, the group completed the 
run with flying colors aquiring 
the best overall time of all the 
schools involved on the weekend. 
The weekend was tough, but it 
was definitely exciting and gave 
each student involved from SU a 
i sense of pride in themselves and 
their school. Good job guys!! By 
the way, anyone care to join us?? 
Come on and be a part of the ac- 
tion. The rewards are worth it! 
Cdt. Sgt. Sarah Corbin

Dr. Kolbert Joins SU Staff 

"The world we live in is a small 
one, and we have to expose 
ourselves to the fact that 
everything is becoming interna- 
tionalized. A person has an acute 
disadvantage if he can't compete 
because he speaks only English." 

The above statement was made 
by Dr. Jack Kolbert, who is the 
new Chairman of the Depart- 
ment- of Modern Languages and 
Professor of French at Sus- 
quehanna University. This is on- 
ly the most recent of the many 
positions he has held in his 
reputable career. He comes to us 
with too many past experiences,

destroy defensive battle stations. 
The U.S.A. will be forced to 
match any systems developed by 
the U.S.S.R. and with these the 
world will be caught in an ever 
expanding circle of increasing 
nuclear weaponry. 

Another aspect of S.D.I, is its 
high costs for research and 
development. Can the U.S.A. af- 
ford such a project in the midst of 
the worst deficit this world has 
ever seen? Scientists estimate that 
research alone will cost as much 
as 26 billion dollars in the next 5 
years and easily 200 billion 
dollars for deployment of such a 
system plus 50 billion annually 
for maintenance. How will this 
money be obtained? Is this pro- 
ject truly a cost-efficient invest- 
ment, or even feasible? 

Scientists generally believe the 
highest efficiency rate possible is 
95 percent, meaning that for 
every 20 warheads launched, 1 
will make it through. If the 
U.S.S.R. was to launch 100 
nuclear missiles toward the 
U.S.A., each releasing 10 nuclear 
warheads, a total of 1000 nuclear 
warheads, at, for example, the 
above kill rate of 95 percent, 50 
nuclear warheads would remain 
destined to reach their appointed 
targets in the U.S.A., equalling 1 
per state. The. U.S.A. would 
retaliate and here we still have a 
M.A.D. world. 

The technology of lasers is 
something which should be pur- 
sued, as it will undoubtedly 
widen the way toward future

Kolbert received his BA and 
MA degrees from the University 
of Southern California, where he

Kolbert accepted his present 
position at Susquehanna Univer- 
sity after being advised by his 
physician to return to teaching

However, is it wise, during these 
difficult times to disrupt a

from nuclear war for more than 
35 years?

previous positions were taxing to 
his health. 

According to Kolbert, the 
Department of Modern 
Languages at Susquehanna is one 
of the University's larger depart- 
ments. There are eight faculty 
members, and a new member will 
be added next year. Kolbert feels 
that "there isn't a single weak link 
in the Language Department." 

His main ambition is to 
develop Susquehanna's Language 
Department into one of the top 
two or three on the East Coast. 

Kolbert would like to see more 
students study overseas, and also 
to have foreign students study 
here. He feels that Susquehanna 
"needs more of an international

work of contacts to help students

Abroad In Denmark 

Experience a year, or a 
semester, abroad in Denmark. As 
a select group of forty American 
colleges, Susquehanna University 
provides the students the oppor- 
tunity to study in the Denmark 
International Study program. 
Since 1959, the University of 
Copenhagen has had over 7,000 
American students earn credits 
toward their undergraduate 
degree. A junior or senior with at 
least a 3.0 cumulative average 
can join the program. 

Currently, Philip Hirsh, study- 
ing sociology, and Catherine 
Svetec, studying management, 
are two participating SU 
students. Last year, as juniors, 
David Sweigard and Debbie 
Guldner enjoyed the DIS pro- 
gram. According to an en- 
thusiastic David Swiegard, the 
"experience is well worth a full 
year of studies, but if a year can't 
be forfeited, spare a semester and 
receive the experience of a 

The study program provides 
high academic education and 
maximum cross-cultural ex- 
perience. The purpose of DIS is 

to 1) promote international 
understanding among students of 
all nationalities, and 2) carry out 
social and cultural activities to 
the benefit of these students. 
Even though the students nor- 
mally don't partake in the same 
courses as the Danish students, 
they enjoy the same privileges. 

Courses are offered in 
Humanities, International 
Business, Social Sciences, Arts, 
and Architecture and Design. 
Though the program - education, 
language, and structure - is 
American, the curriculum ex- 
poses the students to European 
content. During the two-week fall 
midterm and three-week spring 
break, the students travel around 
Europe and the Soviet Union. 
The option of living with a 
Danish family is open to the 
students or they may live in a 
"Kollegium," which is dissimiliar 
to an American dormitory, as 
there is no "campus."

Crusaders Fall Short 

Trying to stage a comeback 
Susquehanna came up two points 
short of Wilkes, losing 2 1 - 1 9. The 
loss put the Crusaders at 0-3 in 
the MAC and 0-4 overall. 

The Susquehanna defense 
played "harder and with more 
abandon" against Wilkes, ac- 
cording to Head Coach William 
"Rocky" Rees, who is still look- 
ing for his first collegiate victory. 
Indeed, the Crusader defense 
forced five turnovers and also 
blocked a punt. 

Leading the way defensively 
were rover Rich Close, a 
sophomore from Wyomissmg, 
Pa., and safety Todd Coolidge, a 
sophomore from Wellsboro, Pa. 
Both were involved in 12 tackles. 
Other Crusader defenders having 
fine games were Howard Hecht 
of Port Washington, N.Y., and 
Trevor Henry of Huntington, Pa. 
Hecht, a freshman middle guard, 
had four tackles, a fumble 
recovery, and the punt block. 
Henry, a sophomore linebacker, 
made 10 tackles, intercepted a 
pass, and also broke up a pass. 

Unfortunately, the Susquehan- 
na offense was not able to take 
full advantage of the turnovers 
caused by the defense. The 
Crusaders had the ball inside the 
Colonels' 10-yard line four times 
in the first half but scored just six 

points on two field goals by 
junior Randy Pozsar of New Ci- 
ty, N.Y. "We beat ourselves," 
lamented Rees. "We did not put 
the ball in the end zone and we 
allowed a blocked punt for a 

Despite the offense's inability 
to capitalize on its early oppor- 
tunities, senior quarterback Ken 
Hughes continued to have suc- 
cess directing the Crusader 
passing attack. The Philadelphia 
native was 12 of 30 for 241 yards 
against Wilkes. He also threw 
two touchdown passes to lead the 
Susquehanna comeback. 

"The concentration is on the 
positive aspects of our season 
thus far," said first-year coach 
Rees. "One of those has been the 
offense's ability to score when we 
have been behind." 

The offense will have to con- 
tinue to produce if the Crusaders 
wish to defeat Widener. The 
Pioneers were defeated by 
Lycoming last week 18-10 to 
lower their MAC record to 2-2 
and their overall record to 3-2. 

In addition, the Crusader 
defense will need to continue its 
improvement to stop the high- 
powered Pioneer offense.

| Chaplain's Corner — 

Would you believe it? Last week's reference to John 
Thalheimer's count of 1504 seats in the Weber Chapel 
Auditorium could have had no less than 172 or maybe 173 SU 
students descending at one time or another upon trie place just 
to confirm the actual figure! Whether that be true or not, this 
can be reported: there was at least a 10% increase in Chapel at- 
tendance last Sunday! Now, there's another happy thought! 
What would be even happier — if you showed up Sunday at 
eleven — this Sunday at eleven! 

passes for 1038 yards and seven 
touchdowns. He is the MAC's 
leading passer with 17.8 comple- 
tions per game and is second in 
total offense, trailing only 
Hughes. "Bennett is a very ex- 
citing player," emphasized Rees. 
"He makes good decisions with 
the ball and his quick feet also 
make him an excellent running 
threat in their option game." 

Widener's top receiver is split 
end John Roche, a senior from 
Philadelphia. The graduate of 
East Pennsboro High School in 
Enola has grabbed 34 passes for 
456 yards and two touchdowns. 
The Pioneer rushing attack, 
which is averaging just 90 yards 

in four MAC games, is led by 
junior tailback Kim Harris of 
Palmyra, N.J. He has carried the 
ball just 1 3 times but has gained 
126 yards and has scored one 

On defense, the Pioneers' 
leading tackier is outside 
linebacker Joe Leach, a junior 
from Wenonah, N.J. Through 
four games, he made 41 tackles, 
recovered four fumbles, and in- 
tercepted one pass. Free safety 
John Quillinan, a senior from 
Ambler, Pa., is the team leader in 
interceptions with three. 

Saturday's kickoff is set for 
1:30 p.m., so everybody come out 
and cheer the Crusaders on 
towards their first victory. 

Ups and Downs for Sticklers 

\ eleve 



Lady Crusader field hockey 
season seems to be fluctuating. 
The girls combined efforts to beat 
Lebanon Valley 2-0. Sarah 
Reynolds blasted her first goal by 
in the first half. The powerful 
shot, along with consistent offen- 
sive play, earned her the offen- 
sive player of th$ game. The 
second Crusader goal was scored 
by Jean Flaherty, who took on 
the Lebanon Valley goalie in a 1 
on 1 situation. Once again, Susan 
"Tater" Bailey commanded the 

As the week went on, the 
sticklers were building up some 
confidence and headed to 
Juniata. What a day for the 
Crusaders! They played well 
together and were strong 
throughout the competition. 
Felecia McClymont deflected a 
pass from Candy Lain which 
resulted in McClymont's second 
goal of the season. Lain was 
credited with her first varsity 
assist. Late in the second half, 
Flaherty locked up the game with 
an unassisted goal off the goalie's 
pads. The Crusaders defeated 
Juniata by a score of 2-0. 

The hockey team then took a 
long (and relaxing) ride to 
Western Maryland. The Lady 
Crusaders played well together 
early in the first half but just 
could not hang on. They were 
defeated by a score of 3-0. On a 

good note the junior varsity 
squad won 2-0. Goals were 
scored by Sue Dobzansky and 
Wendy Goodspeed. Way to go! 

Tomorrow, the sticklers are go- 
ing to get their act together when 
they face the tough squad from 
Dickison College at 1 1 a.m. here 
at SU. So come on out and sup- 
port them! Finally in the words 
of M.J., the quote of the week is, 
"Oh My!" 



Juniata Tourney 

The Women's Volleyball team 
completed their preseason 
schedule by participating in the 
competitive Juniata Classic Tour- 
nament on Oct. 4-5. Facing such 
teams as nationally-ranked Divi- 
sion II Ithaca College and Liberty 
University, the ladies learned a 
great deal but brought no vic- 
tories home to SU. 

Total defeat is not a fitting 
description of the weekend, 
however, because the ladies 
showed strength by scoring 
points and working plays in these 
matches. The scores against 
Ithaca and Liberty, respectively, 
were 9-15, 6-15 and 12-15 and 
14-16. Seniors Kris Hauhuth, 
Alice Brown and Kat Kissinger 
combined for 7 kills against 
Ithaca's strong blocking, and 
Allison Shepard and Donna Neal 
scored 1 1 points on their serves. 
Against Liberty, the trio of 
seniors increased their kill total to 
13, and Deb Melvin, Kissinger 
and Shepard served 19 points. 

Saturday was a disappointing 
day for the Lady Crusaders, as 
they lost to both Western 
Maryland and Saint Catherine 
after winning the first game of 
each match. Against a slow 
Western Maryland team, Kis- 
singer, Hauhuth and Brown 
spiked for 18 kills, and Brown 
had 2 solo blocks. The scores 
were 15-12, 8-15 and 6-15. Final 
ly, against St. Catherine, Brown, 
Shepard, and Hauhuth totaled 1 1 
kills, but these were not enough 
to compensate for a slow Sus- 
quehanna defense. After winning 
game one 15-11, the ladies lost 
2-15 and 3-15. 

Since MAC league play does 
not begin until Oct. 8, the ladies 
have used these tournaments as a 
learning experience, practicing 
plays and defenses against Divi 
sion I and II teams. Look for 
them to improve upon their 7-10 
record in the coming month 
when they face such teams as 
Dickinson, F&M, Kings, 
Western Maryland, and Albright. 
Don't be afraid to visit the 
Auxiliary Gymnasium for a 
home volleyball match. The next 
one will be held on Oct. 24, at 
6:30 p.m. against F&M.

Harriers Still Running Strong 

This past weekend the Sus- 
quehanna cross country team 
faced their toughest competitors 
in dual meet competition. The SU 
team traveled to Bloomsburg to 
run against Bloomsburg, Lock 
Haven, and Clarion University; 
all Division 2 teams. The deep 
Crusader team was short four top 
runners which meant their work 
was cut out for them. As the 
team was warming up they had a 
sense of determination about 
them, because for the first time 
people doubted if the harriers 
could come away with the vic- 

The conditions were perfect for 
a cross country runner, the 
temperature was in the 50's and 
there was a light rain falling as 

the team took positions on the 
starting line. During the race the 
spectators couldn't even tell who 
was ahead; neither could the run 
ners, whose main concern was 
trying to keep their balance 
throughout the race. After it was 
all over, and only the burning 
legs and lungs remained the final 
scores were posted. Susquehanna 
had won by a slim margin against 
all of the teams, SU 27-Lock 
Haven 28, SU 27-Bloomsburg 30, 
and SU 27-Clarion 31. This now 
brings Susquehanna's record to 
7-0. Next week the team travels 
to Messiah to race Messiah and

Good luck, team!

Romberger: Sensational Dissertation 

There is a new professor on 
campus with somewhat of an un- 
fair reputation due to sensa- 
tionalized reports about her 
dissertation (a dissertation is the 
reseach you do for your doc- 
torate). Due to some fairly ex- 
plicit facts included in Dr. Bever- 
ly Romberger's dissertation, it 
was labeled x-rated by some. 
Before you all get to excited let's 
look at what the research was 
really about. 

Dr. Romberger holds her doc- 
torate in speech communication. 
The purpose of her study was to 
look at where, when, and how 
women learn to relate to men, 
and to see what similarities there 
are among women in regard to 
what they hear about men, 
especially through popular say- 

The basic questions used in her 
study were (1) what are the com- 
monplaces (memorable state- 
ments) that women have heard 
about men, (2) who are the 
sources — mother, father, boys, 
ministers, teachers, girls, and (3) 
what forms were the messages 
conveyed in — gossip, sayings, 

Dr. Romberger conducted the 
research using the oral histories 
of eight women. By oral history 
she means that women told their 
life story speaking about the 
what's and the how's of men. The 
eight subjects had very different 
backgrounds in the following 
areas: educational, religious, oc- 
cupations, ethnic and family 
status. Their age ranged from 
20-to late 60's. 

Between the eight women, Dr. 
Romberger came up with about 
200 commonplaces about men 
and relationships that could be 
divided into two major categories 
— interpersonal and sexual. 
Some examples of interpersonal 
topics include male and female 
roles in relationships, marriage 
expectations, men's vices, 
economics, and parental relation- 
ships. An example commonplace 
is "If he's good to his mother hell 
be good to you." Sexual topics in- 
clude sex drive, virtue, and 
"double standard", promiscuity 
and obligations. A surprising 
finding on this side was that 
"locker room talk", or the overall 
amount of talk about sex, is equal 
between men and women, and 
either sex is just as verbal about 
sexual topics. 

The main reason that the study 
was considered x-rated, is that 
women were asked to talk about 
their first sexual experiences. 
These accounts often brought in- 
to play "giving in" to the popular 
guy, and ending up hurt. They 
also were often very explicit. Un- 
fortunately this is the part of the 
study that has gotten the sensa- 
tionalized attention. 

The actual results of the study 
were far more interesting, and 
brought out a lot of the 
stereotypes that women find 
themselves classified in. 

One interesting discovery was 
that women dress and act in 
seductive ways for men because 
they largely feel that is what is ex- 
pected of them. A woman must 
have a man, and that is how she

Susquehanna University has 
been selected to participate iqthe 
newly established Kistiakowsky 
Visiting Scholar Program, spon- 
sored by the American Academy 
of Arts and Sciences, Cambridge, 

The visiting scholar program is 
named for the late George 
Kistiakowsky, a former professor 
of chemistry emeritus at Harvard 
University. He was also a 
member of the Manhattan Pro- 
ject and chairman of the Council 
for a Livable World. 

The program, in its first year, 
will sponsor visits of dis- 
tinguished specialists in the fields 
of international security, defense 
policy, and arms control to 11 
small colleges and universities. In 
this way the American Academy 
of Arts and Sciences believes the 
program will make a substantial 
contribution to scholarship, 
research, and teaching in these 
fields while honoring the deep 
commitment brought by Mr. 
Kistiakowsky to the search for 
ways to avoid a nuclear conflict. 
This year's scholar-in-residence 
is Dr. Abraham Chayes. He is the

an address at the annual Univer- 
sity Scholars Recognition Dinner 

Friday, Nov. 1. 

Dr. Chayes was legal advisor to 
the United States Department of 
State from 1961 to 1964. A 
specialist in international law, he 
is a trustee of the World Peace 
Foundation and for the Center 
for Law and Social Policy. He is 
also vice president of the Albert 
Einstein Peace Prize Foundation. 
Among Dr. Chayes's publica- 
tions are "The Cuban Missile 
Crisis, International Crisis and 
the Role of the Law" in 1974 and 
"International Arrangements for 
Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing" in 
1977. Additionally, Dr. Chayes is 
a member of the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences 
where he serves as a member of 
the Weapons in Space project. 
Under the auspices of the project, 
he has co-written an article titled 
"Space Weapons: The Legal Con- 
text," that appeared in the sum- 
mer 1985 issue of "Daedalus." 

During his visit to Susquehan- 
na University, Dr. Chayes will 
discuss the issues of Nicaragua, 
Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m. in 
Seibert Auditorium. This Thurs- 
day night lecture, also at 8 p.m. in 
Seibert Audtonum, will encom- 
pass many of the issues involved 
in "star wars" defense system. He 
will speak in a number of regular- 
ly scheduled classes during the 
day. Both the Wednesday and 
Thursday evening lectures are 
open to the public, free of charge. 

can catch one. Unfortunately, 
these women are all to often 
labeled as teases, because despite 
the outward promiscuity they are 
not ready to jump into bed with 

The overall impression given 
by Dr. Romberger's research is 

that women expect a lot from 
men. They want a close friend, a 
companion, someone who is at- 
tractive, a good listener and 
someone who will stand on his 
own two feet, is financially secure 
and independently strong. 
Women, of course, find their 
hopes dashed when they realize 
that the man of the romance 
novels is just not out there. This 
is, of course, only if their dreams 
weren't crushed when mother 
said "Look at your father — and 
he's one of the good ones!" 

The study seemed to indicate 
that women have their own oral 
culture. Sex is not learned about 
through formal education, 
especially since by the time sex ed 
is taught in school it is old hat to 
the students. Women's ideas 
about men have been passed 

down from great-grandmother to 
grandmother to mother to 
daughter for years and years. 
This bona fide oral culture could 
very well influence the feminist 
movement. Why? Sure, women 
speak and act as though equal 
sharing of all work is the path for 
a relationship to take. However, 

what woman doesn't feel respon- 
sible if the house is a mess, or the 
kids need a sitter, or the meals 
need to be cooked. These are 
areas where the oral culture, and 
the examples set by women 
generations before us overcome 
whatever changes todays culture 
is trying to make. 

Dr. Romberger hopes to ex- 
pand this study, so that she can 
determine the accuracy of these 
results. She hopes to have the op- 
portunity to record more oral 
histories, because they provide 
such an in depth look at a 
person's life, and also give them a 
chance to explain where these 
fundamental beliefs come from. 
Dr. Romberger's other choice is 
to do a large scale questionnaire 
which won't provide the depths, 
but will be able to survey a 
greater number and variety of 

Dr. Romberger, by the way, is 
married and has a two year old 
baby girl. She grew up not far 
from here in Klingerstown, Pa. 
on a farm. All of her degrees are 
from Penn State University, 
where she taught as a graduate 
student. This is her first year at 
Susquehanna, and from the 
Crusader staff Good Luck!!

Our Corner 

Drinking this Week? 

The time has come. A new 
movement is sweeping America's 
campuses. South African apart- 
heid and its key American issue, 
divestment, are being debated by 
all wings. Students at Yale and 
Harvard have applied the 
pressure and succeeded. Just up 
the road at Bucknell, student 
demonstrations have the ad- 
ministration scrambling. At ol' 

The battlelines have been 
drawn. The blacks have decided 
that they have waited long 
enough. They want one man, one 
vote. They ask nothing more and 
will accept nothing less. The 
whites, on the other hand, believe 
that they fought for and 
established the country, and are 
unwilling to give up their control. 
This has led to the demonstra- 
tions and rioting. At the Universi- 
ty of California at Berkly and 
the University of Pennsylvania, 
the students are doing what they 
can. At ol' SU... 

SUN Dates 

Has everybody seen the new 
addition to the Campus Center? 
Some group name "S.U.N.", 
whoever they are, put up a big 
calendar so everybody can put up 
their birthdays, party dates, and 
various messages. I bet that those 
blocks they used as days would 
make great frisbees some Satur- 
day night after I've been drink- 
ing. This is a great idea and ... 

Hold the phone folks, this is 
not what the calendar was in- 
tended for. To start, S.U.N., or 
the Susquehanna University 
Neighborhood, is a combination 
of all the projects on campus. The 

For Americans, divestment is 
the means by which people can 
get involved. The two South 
African-Indian gentlemen who 
visited the campus a few weeks 
ago urged students to push for 
divestment, possibly by giving up 
IBM PC's or other such acts. 
Others claim that divestment will 
be detrimental to the black's 
plight because the economy will 
crumble and blacks will lose jobs. 
Most students seem to favor 
divestment. At ol' SU... 

At ol' SU, perhaps people don't 
give a damn. Unfortunately, it 
appears that way to anyone who 
has read The Crusader in the last 
few weeks. Several topics, current 
controversies, have been raised, 
but no responses have been 
given. Anyone out there? I have 
a $10 bet with another staff 
member that we won't hear a 
word from anyone. Boy, would I 
love to lose. See you next week. 

calendar was constructed so the 
projects could publicize their 
events to the student body. The 
calendar took a lot of people a lot 
of time to put together, and is 
taking an unnecessary amount of 
time to maintain. So in the 
future, could the student body 
please use the calendar as a 
source of information rather than 
a graffiti board. Thanks for your 
cooperation, and a special Happy 
Birthday to Deb, Brenda, Rich, 
Harley, Lindsay, and Allison, 
whoever you are.

October 21 - 27 is National 
Collegiate Alcohol Awarness 

Surveys of campus drinking in- 
dicate that over 80% of students 
drink alcoholic beverages and 
that 15-20% of these may be 
"problem drinkers." Alcoholism 
is relatively rare among students. 
But often, drinking patterns are 
established during these years 
which persist beyond graduation. 
The issue on campuses is not 
whether to drink or not, but how 
to drink. And the answer is: 

Responsible drinking, edu- 
cators and health advocates 
agree, means drinking to enhance 
activities, not to be the focus of 
activities. It means drinking in a 
manner which does not harm 
others or one's self. It means ac- 
quiring accurate information 
about alcohol and its effects, so 
that decisions about one's 
behavior can be made well. 

- How can I tell if alcohol is 
becoming a problem for me? 

- In what ways can I change 

Career Crusader 

The Career Crusaders are now 
open for business. We are looking 
for interested students with ques- 
tions concerning their careers. A 
representative from our project 
will be available to talk with 
those interested from 9-11 p.m. 
each week night in Suite D of 
Seibert Hall. Come in to have 
your questions about resumes or 
grad-school testing answered 
now. During each week, we also 
have people in the Career 
Development Office to help 
students with resume writing. 
Our hours are Tuesday 2-4 p.m., 
Wednesday 1-3 p.m., Thursday 
2-4 p.m., and Friday 1-3 p.m. 
This week, our activities include 
a workshop on Wednesday Oct. 
30 at 7 p.m. in meeting Rm#3 on 
Internship opportunities. Sophs 
and Juniors, be aware that a 
Career Crusader will knock on 
your door to inform you of our 
new explore program dealing 
with externships. Also, on Nov. 
1, Parents Career Program Day 
will be held. Be aware of what's 
happening in your career, come 
talk to a Career Crusader. 

Editors Note: Due to the under- 
whelming flow of copy, this 
weeks paper is smaller than ex- 
pected. The article you are look- 
ing for will appear in next weeks 


Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus 

my drinking behavior without 
giving up my social Life? 

- How can parties be planned 
in accord with a more responsible 
approach to drinking? 

- If I suspect I have a drinking 
problem, what can I do about it? 

- Where can I get more infor- 
mation about these or other 
alcohol-related questions? 

The Counseling Center has a 
variety of resources to help 
answer these questions. In addi- 
tion, Fritz Kreisler, Director of 

Counseling, would be happy to 
talk to you or your group (frater- 
nity, sorority, dorm floor, etc.) 
about these issues. Programs en- 
couraging a more responsible ap- 
proach to drinking are having 
positive effects all over the 
country. Becoming more in- 
formed is the first step towards 
reducing dangerous, irresponsible 
drinking. For an appointment, 
call the Counseling Center at ex- 
tension 133, or drop by — we're 
in the Campus Center adjacent to 
the Student Life offices. 

Fissure By Steele? 

There seems to be a lot of con- 
cern on this campus surrounding 
the massive holes outside Steele 
Hall. With all the rain we've been 
having, students are wondering if 
Steele Hall will just slide in one 
day and disappear. Well, not to 
worry. Quit your sign making 
and stop the demonstration! By 
the beginning of this week the 
masonry of the three planters 
should be completed. 

Mr. Henry of the Physical 
Plant assured this worried 
reporter that all is well, and asked 
that those students threatening to 
blow up his "golf carts'' sit back 
and listen to an updated progress 

For anyone who does not 
know yet what I'm talking about, 
it is the memorial being built be- 
tween Fisher and Steele Halls. 
Popular rumor held that the pro- 

ject was taking so long because 
good old SU was trying to get the 
job done for free. Sorry Charlie! 
In reality the masonry work on 
this job is only worth a few days 
of a contractor's time. It took this 
long for the contractor to coor- 
dinate this into his schedule. To 
relieve the minds of these 
students, if Mother Nature per- 
mits, the brickwork, including 
walkways, should be completed 
by the end of next week. At very 
least there should be a real 
walkway along the route that is 
most heavily trafficked — right 
next to Steele Hall. 

Plantings and the central kiosk 
(which will hold a bulletin board) 
will not be going in until next 
spring. So now, you can all relax 
and sorry about the big issues, 
like what is the best way to drink 
club soda?

First and foremost for this 
week, the Sisters of Sigma Kappa 
extend a double congratulations 
and best wishes to Sue Stanitski!! 
Not only is today Stu's birthday, 
today is also the day Sue will 
become a very special part of our 
mystic bond. Your friendship is 
valued highly by us all Sue, and

that much better! Tonight will 
hold a time for you that you will 
never forget - live every moment! 
We are so happy to have you 
become our Sisters in Sigma K. ... 
We Live our lives One Heart, 
One Way... 

Thanks to the Brothers of Phi 
Mu Delta for sharing an extreme- 
ly ballsy time Friday night. Mom- 
ma 0. wins the prize (an all- 
expenses paid trip to anywhere 
that doesn't spin) for being the 
biggest supporter of The Chair. 
You should've seen your face! I 
think Dooey should be declared 
the Master Recruiter of The 
Chair. Guys, it's always fun par- 
* tying with you. 

Sigma's Open House will be 
coming up before you know it 
-Oct. 31! Come in costume or

a great time with the sisters! 

The spirit contest is tomorrow 
as our team takes on Moravian. 
Let's all be there with good vocal 
cords and all your sportswear. 

Our only other birthday sister 
for the week is Sue Heim. When 
you see her wish her all the best 
and help her celebrate her new- 
found legality! 

This week is my Jast week as 
editor of It's Greek to Us. ZTA's 
Linda Hagelgans will be taking 
over duties so that each gets their 
fair chance. After 6 months on 
the job I will miss it, but I still 
have the power to spread the 
word for 7 more weeks. 
Newswriters, please send your 
news to her via campus mail. 
Thanks. And until your eyes 
meet Sigma print again RBG 

A Thought..." 

A sister is a special someone 

Who shares our plans and 

A companion who listens with 

interest places 
To all our hopes and dreams 
A good friend who joins us in

Who knows our doubts and 

Someone to treasure deep down 

in the heart 
With a closeness that grows 

through the years

came to our house last Thursday 
for our movie night. We trust 
that everyone had a good time.

Toot" Jacone, Diane, "Burn Baby 
Burn" Braisted and Janice 
"Someone left the cake out in the 
Rain" Dumphy for the terrific 
Disco class Friday night.

Special orders don't upset us 

all we ask is that you let us 

serve it your way. 

It takes two hands to handle a 

Whopper, not a Big Mac!!! 

Sisters, Don't forget about the 
spirit contest tomorrow! Let's see 
our green and white shine. We 
would like to take the time out to 
congratulate Robert W. Wilson 
from Harvard University, on his 
recent engagement to our very 
own Muffy Biehl. We wish you 
both all the happiness in the 

Attention Jeff Bulick, the next 
time you try to steal our Presi-

the gym floor by a runaway 

Doty, money ain't for nothing. 
Send in the clowns: Birch, Shoe, 
Greg and McNulty. 

A warm welcome to our 
weekend foster parents Chickie 
and Gene. Gene how's the Z do- 

Until next week, 

T.H. who is temporarily sitting 

in for K.D. 


Seventh week is already gone 
and Theta is psyched for a quick 
end to the pain and misery of 
mid-terms. Last Friday, some of 
the brothers went on a little 
camping excursion to Tall 
Timbers state forest. While some 
brothers lay helplessly by the fire, 
others remained stuck in the tur- 
bulent waters of the raging 
stream and some were only kept 
from being lost on top of the 
mountain by the Mut- 
tenhead/Pinhead connection; it's 
amazing what power one holds 
with light! All in all, the trip was 
Key. Saturday night's party with 
the DJ's (Tim and Rob) was a suc- 
cess, the wall flowers do dance! 
Congratulations to our little 
sisters; let's have a big round of 
applause, they were initiated Fri- 
day night. We are very delighted 
to have them and are very proud 
of them! This weekend looks pro- 
mising in the party department. 
Look forward to a possible clash 
bash or something of that sort. 
We're looking forward to seeing 
you all here. Until next week, if 
you get faced with somethings 
sometimes that are a bit hard to 
swallow, T.P. says "Hey, Hey, 
Hey enschtuff like dat!"

"they were unstoppable". 

Special congratulations also to 
brother John and brother Paul 
for finally reaching the big 21, 
and to brother Tom for his 
special efforts to clean the sheets 
on brother Mac's bed. And to 
brother Joe, who is going to go on

Weekend festivities are now 
opening up fellow partiers. Don't 
miss another exciting episode of 
the "party animals on the 
avenue." Stop down and enjoy 
the festivities. Also, rush func- 
tions will be starting shortly. 
Dare to be different, we did. 


First let me congratulate Andy 
Bowman, Matthew Walker, and 
Joe Boileau for winning our an- 
nual scholastic achievement 
award. Each winner receives 
funds from our chapter plus 
matching funds from our na- 
tional chapter. I hope they choose 
to spend their award money wise- 

As for last weekend, if you 

weren't aware the sisters of ZTA 
and ourselves celebrated Friday 
night with the prize money from 
the Homecoming float. Not to be 
cut short, Saturday we also had 
a mixer with Phi Mu Delta at 
their place. Brother Mac en- 
countered a new experience also 
at this party. Just watch where 


I've had a helluva time trying 
to save this week's greek news on 
my disk, and I am a little more 
than livid right now, so this will 
be short and sweet. This past 
weekend was a blast for all those 
brothers remaining here. The 
Smith postulates were created 
and a new group CST, is on the 
way up! We'd like to thank all the 
people who showed up to keep 
the weekend alive. Eric almost 
died listening to "Dark Side of the 
Moon," and Craig got back from 
Mars early Sunday morning. 

Last week, our Corn and 
#@##! night went very well, with 
a very large turnout. We are still 
playing football on Sundays at 2 
p.m.; and Monday night football 
is still going strong with a good 
turnout for last Monday's slide 
show. Freshmen, get ready for 
the competition this weekend- 
everything will be taken care of, 
Geisinger is on full alert. The two 
on two basketball is also going 
strong with the first round 
already completed. My money's 
on Tourville and Cole. 

Little sisters, get ready for an 
experience this week and 
remember our slumber party is 
coming up soon! 

In closing, ADPi, get ready for 
the best pre-party you've had this

The Crusaders' Unanswered Points 

Grabbing an early 14-0 lead, 
Susquehanna looked well on their 
way to their first victory of the 
1985 football season. Instead, the 
tough Widener defense tightened 
up and their offense scored 38 
unanswered points, to eventually 
beat the Crusaders 38-21. 

From the beginning it was all 
Susquehanna. On the opening 
drive, Ken Hughes and Kevin 
Gormley led the Crusaders down 
field to the Susquehanna 40 yard 
line. On the next play, Hughes 
connected with split end Rob 
Sochovka on a 60 yard 
touchdown strike. The extra 
point by Randy Pozsar was good, 
and Susquehanna had a 7-0 lead 
on a 4 play, 80 yard drive. 

Widener, on the ensuing 
kickoff, started from their own 3 1 
yard line. After moving the ball 
to their own 43, running back 
Kim Harris fumbled a second- 
down pitch that set Widener back 
for a loss of 7 yards. On third 
down Widener quarterback 
Glenn Bennett connected with 
split end John Roche, but it was 
short of a first down and Widener 
was forced to punt. 

Following a fine 37 yard punt 
by Roche, Susquehanna took aim 
at paydirt. On first down, Hughes 
found split end Al Bucci 
downfield for 22 yards. This was 
followed by fine running by 
Gormley and freshman Joseph 
Witt. The Crusaders found 
themselves at midfield, but were 
unable to penetrate pioneer ter- 

Widener was again unable to 
move the ball and punted after 5 
plays. Susquehanna started from 
their own 23 yard line and beean 

an 8 play, 77 yard drive capped 
by a gutsy call on fourth down 
and 1. The drive started with 
runs of 5 and 17 yards by 
Gormley and Hughes, respective- 
ly. Then on first and ten from the 
Widener 45 yard line, Hughes hit 
Witt on a 23 yard pass play to the 
pioneer 22. After three successive 
running plays, Susquehanna was 
faced with fourth and one from 
the Widener 13 yard line. The 
play that followed shocked the 
home crowd. The Crusaders 
faked a running play and Hughes 
found halfback Mike Leitzel all 
alone in the end zone for the 
score. The extra point by Pozsar 
was again good, and the 
Crusaders led 14-0. 

At this point the Crusaders 
should have quit and taken the 
win, because Widener put on a 
football exhibition. On the ensu- 
ing series of downs, the pioneers 
scored on a 4 play, 62 yard drive. 
The drive was highlighted by a 49 
yard pass from Bennett to Roche. 
On the next play, the first of the 
2nd quarter, fullback Steve For- 
ward scored on a 10 yard run. 
The extra point was added by 
Mark Manera and Widener 
closed the gap to 14-7. 

On the following series Sus- 
quehanna got a five run 19 yard 
run by Gormley, but that was all 
they could get. The Crusaders 
punted away and Widener scored 
on another short drive. This one 
covered 61 yards on 3 plays 
capped by Forward's second 
touchdown of the game. 
Manera 's extra point was good 
and the score was deadlocked at 

Susquehanna, on the next

series, started to move the ball 
downfield but were hampered by 
the penalty. The Crusaders were 
on the Pioneer 40 yard line when 
an illegal motion penalty pushed 
them back 5 yards. This was 
followed by a loss of 7 yards, 
when Hughes was sacked. The 
Crusaders punted and had 
Widener inside the 15 yard line, 
but it was called back by a 
clipping penalty. The result was 
Widener starting on their own 35 
yard line. 

Widener, on their third con- 
secutive scoring drive, scored 
with 4:41 left in the second 
quarter. The drive was capped by 

a 7 yard touchdown run by slot- 
back Kevin Quinn. Manera was, 
once again, perfect and Widener 
had the lead at the half, 21-14. 

The second half opened with 
both teams moving the ball, but 
not far enough. Widener opened 
with a 38 yard drive that saw a 45 
yard field goal miss wide left. Sus- 
quehanna marched up the field to 
the pioneer 38 yard line, but 
could go no farther and punted. 
What resulted was a 17 play 90 
yard drive capped by a 18 yard 
field goal. This made the score 
24-14 late in the third quarter. 

Susquehanna failed to move 
the ball and punted away. The 

pioneers, starting from their own 
29 yard line, put together a 9 play 
71 yard drive producing a 2 yard 
touchdown run by Forward. 
Three minutes later Widener 
struck for the sixth and last time. 
This time it was Quinn on a 21 
yard touchdown pass from Ben- 
nett. The extra point was good 
and Widener led 38-14 with 9:06 
left in the ballgame. 

Susquehanna took the ensuing 
kickoff and went 71 yards on 10 
plays for a touchdown. The drive 
was highlighted by the running 
and pass receiving of John Lotti 
and Cosmo Iacavazzi, with Bucci 
getting the 18 yard scoring strike.

t Chaplain's Corner — 

Any time can be a good time to pray. One can say that again 
and again! Some students at mid-term may do one of two things: 
study harder and pray a bit. The tempo picks up. 

What if at chapel this Sunday we offered special prayers for 
those facing mid-terms — what if? Chapel is at eleven and this 
Sunday it will be a plain service - as simple as we can make it — 
in the intimate setting of the Horn Meditation Chapel — all 
paths can lead you there. Come — the door is open — .

News from St. Louis 

From October 17-20 the World 
Series celebration was not the on- 
ly event in St. Louis that was 
worth celebrating over. Members 
of the Student Government 
Association's executive commit- 
tee were there attending the 7th 
Annual National Leadership 
Conference on Student Govern- 
ment. The four SGA executives 
in attendance were Jim Faust, 
president; Darren Pellegrino, 
vice-president; Rob Miller, 
treasurer; and Doug Carlson, 
parliamentarian. Dorothy Ander- 
son, dean of students, also attend- 
ed as a facilitator for the con- 

The conference began on Oc- 
tober 17 at 7:00 with a presenta- 
tion by Dr. Pat J. Bosco, director 
for the Center for Leadership 
Development, entitled "Effective 
Student Government." The con- 
ference continued to Sunday 
afternoon and from the time it 
started to the end the SGA ex- 
ecutives were attending 
numerous meetings. Workshops 
ranged from topics such as the 
"legal rights of students" to 
"burnout prevention." The new 
ideas generated from this con- 
ference are planned on being im- 
plemented by the end of first 
semester. Jim said that too many 
times he has seen a lot of good 
ideas come out of a conference 

like this, but once the delegates 
return they soon forget and the 
conference is worthless. He said 
this would not be the case, 
because he spent many hours in 
the office Monday and wrote out 
every idea in detail, and many 
ideas are in the first stage of im- 
plementation already. Some ideas 
include budget guidelines for 
clubs, terminating the Informa- 
tion Resource Standing Commit- 
tee and replacing it with a Cam- 
pus Life Committee, developing a 
formal structure for Dorm coun- 
cils so that students will be better 
aware of SGA and will have a 
greater input, and SGA is going 
to keep a closer eye on the clubs 
so that they continue to operate 

Darren, Rob and Doug en- 
joyed the conference and also 
have tons of ideas for the student 
body. It was a great learning ex- 
perience for each delegate. The 
conference really motivated the 
four and it will be noticeable that 
the SGA is expanding to become 
most effective. The biggest eye 
opener for Jim was that SGA 
should be treated equal with ad- 
missions, student life, residence 
life, development, faculty and so 
forth. To bring out this point he 
is planning on writing a journal 
entitled, "Student Government 
Association and the Institution." 

The journal will include the 
minutes from senate meetings, 
the constitution and by-laws, and 
all the statistics concerning 
students and SGA that he can dig 
up. Jim noted that our SGA is a 
very well run organization and is 
highly respected by the ad- 
ministrators. He does see im- 
provements with the faculty and 
he says its due to the fact that 
they never hear what we do. He 
hopes that they will see how ef- 
fective SGA is when the journal 
is distributed. 

Rob said that it was an ex- 
cellent opportunity to share ideas 
and opinions with other student 
government representatives from 
schools the same size as Sus- 

The conference was high- 
lighted by the surprise visit from 
President Ronald Reagan. He 
was on his way to the World 
Series game and stopped by the 
hotel to visit the conference. He 
spread words of hope to the 
students that if they continue to 
use their leadership abilities to 
become the leaders of our cities, 
states, and the nation. 

The SGA Executives are going 
to be giving a presentation on the 
conference on Monday, No- 
vember 4, during the Senate 
meeting. Everyone is invited to 
attend to hear about the new 

Washington Conference 

On Wednesday, Oct. 16, Presi- 
dent Cunningham and Doug 
Yago travelled to Washington 
D.C. to represent SU at a na- 
tional press conference. The con- 
ference dealt with the current 
drive to improve the involvement 
of students with the communities 
in which they live. At this time, 
75 colleges are participating in 
the program. In addition to SU, 
some notable schools are Har- 
vard, MIT, and Columbia 
University. Six schools were 
represented at the press con- 
ference: Spelman, in Georgia, 
University of Mass. at Amherst, 
Brown University, Hood Univer- 
sity, Georgetown University, and 
SU. Donald Kennedy held a 
similar conference on the West 
Coast. In Jan. there will be a ma- 
jor meeting of the 75 presidents, 
assuming they can keep the total 
that small, to organize the entire 

At the East Coast Conference, 
Frank Newman, the President of 
the Education Commission of the 
United States, pointed out that 
their is a decline in the voting 
among students, which is con- 

trary to the usual rise in voting as 
education increases. This is seen 
as an indication that student in- 
volvement is declining. So, the 
consortion set out to investigate 
the question. The group began 
with a membership of four: 
Newman, Howard Swearer, 
President of Brown, Rev. 
Timothy Healy, President of 
Georgetown, and Kennedy, 
President of Stanford. They see 
student involvement in com- 
munity service as an integral part 
of collegiate experiences. In addi- 
tion, they note that when 
students are given the option of 
participating in such programs, 
they respond positively. 

The goal of the conferences is 
to investigate how colleges can 
create mechanisms for students 
to help in their communities. In 
addition, the coalition wants to 
see what services students are 
already involved in and how to 
form a clearing-house to dispense 
these ideas to the various col- 
leges. This is where Doug Yago 
and the other students played a 

Yago is a senior at SU and is 
involved in many projects. He is 

a student advisor and a member 
of the FORCE team in addition 
to his participation in two cam- 
pus projects. Several reporters, 
from publications such as the 
American Collegiate Press, inter- 
viewed Yago. He gave them a 
wealth of information about the 
project system at SU, some of 
which may be news to many 
students here. 

SU is in its tenth year of pro- 
jects, with 17 different ones (not 
including the Greek system) pro- 
viding community service. These 
projects involve 15% of the stu- 
dent body. Unlike many schools, 
SU students choose their own 
project goals. Some schools simp- 
ly offer a choice of alternatives. 
This personal selection increases 
the participants sense of ac- 
complishment. SU has not gone 
without recognition for its pro- 
ject system. In addition to being 
chosen for this national cam- 
paign, the school was given the 
Keystone Award of Merit from 
the Governor of Pa. last year. 
With state and national praise for 
its achievements, the SU project 
system and its participants have a 
lot to be proud of.

Our Comer 

The Phenolumn 

XII. Who's Watching Big Brother? 

by Doug Chamberlin 

The topic of this "Our Corner" 
is inspired by some sarcastic com- 
ments in Phi Mu Delta's "It's 
Greek to Us." It is obvious that 
some of the editorial aspects of 
putting together a paper are 
misunderstood. Hopefully, this 
column will help explain the dif- 
ficulties involved and head off 
any ill feelings. 

As far as the complaint about 
the mistakes in two names, I 
don't believe that we can be held 
responsible. The changes that we 
make as editors are obvious 
misspellings and the deletion of 
potentially slanderous or unprint- 
able material. Anything else is 
printed as is because we have no 
way of knowing what is correct. I 
proof-read Phi Mu Delta's 
column personally the week in 
question and I believe that 1 
wondered at the time if the Little 
Sister's VP was a guy or a girl 
named Eric. I couldn't change it 
and I couldn't make connections 
to check it out. If the people that 
submit these columns are not 
willing to carefully proof-read, 
then they must accept the errors 
as they come. 

The writers of "It's Greek to 
Us" abuse the privilege of 
trusting us to correct their errors. 
Some of the copy we receive is 
downright disgraceful. There is 
no way any of these would be 
turned in to a professor. We do 
our best to fix what we can. 

A second complaint is about 
the pulling of some columns. This 
is a valid complaint and we hate 
when we have to do it. Unfor- 
tunately, when we are forced to 
do a four page paper, we have no 

choice. The fact is, there just isn't 
room to devote an entire page. 
Paid advertisements must be put 
in the paper, come hell or high 
water. The front page and sports 
columns must go, and, frankly, 
the editorial page stays, too. 

The simple solution is to have 
enough copy for eight pages. To 
do this, however, w» need more 
writers. It is plain and simple, we 
are seriously understaffed. Well, 
this part is beginning to sound 
like a broken record. You're tired 
of reading it and I'm tired of 
writing it. The point is, to avoid 
the cutting of material in the 
future, we need a constant flow 
of copy. By the way, we can't do 
a six page paper; it is technically 
impossible. That leaves the huge 
jump from four to eight. If you 
have any ideas, let us know. 
We're here for you to use — help 
us help you. See you back here 
next week. 


Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the' 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus

What do candy bars, a pump- 
kin on top of Heilman Hall, 
jackhammers and the Depart- 
ment of Communications all 
have in common? For one, 
they're all part of one of the 
greatest alleged scandals to rock 
central Pennsylvania in all time! 
In fact, it could possibly be said 
that the events about which you 
are about to read constitute the 
most massive inside operation 
ever to be exposed since 

It all started with a big hole in 
front of Steele Hall. A big hole 
which, I'm sure we all agree, 
came into being with no lack of 
consistent drilling, hammering, 
and various operating of "loud" 
machinery. I was rudely 
awakened at seven in the morn- 
ing after a sleep of three hours 
and decided to take my complaint 
to a certain dean (who's name she 
requests not be mentioned). The 
dean in question told me I was to 
report to the acting dean of 
sidewalk maintenance, Thomas 
Damuxchdabixt. But my visit to 
the acting dean was not taken 
very well; in fact he told me, 
"Look, Bud, we don't appreciate 
people who fuss. Let's just say 
that it's a very unhealthy thing to 
do, understand?" At this time a 
large man (of about 400 pounds) 
physically removed me from the 
premises. Something was wrong, 
I knew it. I had spoken to 
grouchy deans before, but this 
was simply too much! 

I decided to take the long way 
home and think, for a change of 
pace. But as I was passing the 
back of the Physical Plant, a tall, 
white-haired man of about 60 
years, wearing a long overcoat, 
leaped out from behind the coal 
pile and startled me with a 
"Helooo." He told me who he 
was and said, "I see that you've 
met with some confusion today. 
Maybe I can help clear things up. 
You see, I know what's going 

— n 


This man, let's call him "Post 
Nasal Drip" ("Deep Throat" had 
been taken), unfolded to me the 
secrets which I now make public: 
We, as Susquehanna students, 
have been manipulated into do- 
ing wh%t we are told by an ex- 
perimental, secret, radical sub- 
department under the Depart- 
ment of Communications known 
as the Department of 
Psychological Experimentation 
in Subliminal Advertising, or 
DOPES, as they are affectionate- 
ly known. The objective of the 
DOPES is to persuade the 
students (by means of subliminal 
advertising) into doing whatever 
the department's current 
customer wants them to do, buy, 
or say. For example, a local mer- 
chant may pay monthly to have 
the notion of his product forced 
into our brains through any 
number of unnoticeable, 
underhanded media which the 
DOPES control. Another month, 
the department may be working 
for a professor who wants his 
students bombarded with 
demands to be on time to class. 
Those of us who are late know 

the feeling we get as the tower 
chimes go off signalling our tar- 
diness; where do you think that 
fear comes from? It is stirred up 
in us by a high-pitched message 
transmitted underneath the 
prerecorded tower chimes! How 
could we have consciously missed 
this fact? Because, for one, the 
sound is much to high for us to 
noticeably hear, and secondly, we 
have no reason to doubt the in- 
tentions of the old "S.U. 
Doorbell" in the first place. 

Spotting the communication 
devices of the DOPES is not par- 
ticularly easy, although they 
abound on campus. All it takes is 
a healthy paranoia in observing 
your surroundings. Take, for in- 
stance, that red moving sign in 
the campus center. A high-speed 
photo will reveal much! Behind 
those bright red letters moves a 
selected message at an incredible 
rate. much too fast to be 
noticed by naked eye. Post Nasal 
Drip enlightened me to this 
phenomenon with one such 
photo showing the sign reading 
"...Football Team won today..." 
in the foreground but with a 
blurry background message 
reading "...A.R.A. That's the 
day! A.R.A. All the day! A.R.A. 
Hooray, Hooray...". Infiltration 
of our radios is another method 
used by the DOPES, WQSU itself 
refuses to participate, but, alas, 
the airwaves are intercepted and 
retransmitted by a small 
scrambler located on top of 
Heilman Hall. Fortunately, this 
month's intended high-frequency 
broadcast of "...Read the 
Crusader, do it for you... We give 

you more news than QSU...." was 
botched by a small pumpkin 
which completely smothered the 
towertop transmittor. 

I decided to question the head 
of the Department of Com- 
munications, Larry Augustine, 
about the alleged subliminal 
advertising ring. His reply was 
minimal, but he did show signs of 
nervousness and defensiveness by 
wiping sweat off his brow during 
the interview, which now follows 
in it's entirety: 

D.C.: Mr. Augustine, do you 
have any comment on the alleged 
subliminal advertising taking 
place on campus? 

L.A.: Nope. 

According to Post Nasal Drip, 
the sub-department was formed 
under the joint direction of the 
Departments of Psychology, 
Communications, and Business 
in 1981 with it's first actual ex- 
periment taking place the follow- 
ing year. This primitive enterprise 
consisted of the installation of a 
large speaker across the railroad 
tracks about a half mile away 
from campus, which was used to 
blast muffled, backward messages 
upon the innocent S.U. public. 
This speaker is still used, mostly 
on warm days during the morn- 
ing hours, for crucial messages 
that must be heard by all. Drip's 
tape of a booming announcement 
of some sort yields only a garbled 
"...uoy rof nam eht si mahgnin- 
nuC leoJ..." until we listen to it 
played in reverse! But this display 
of unscrupulous persuasion is not 
restricted to public areas, oh no!

Drew University located in 
Madison, New Jersey offers a 
number of off-campus and 
overseas study experiences which 
are open to Susquehanna 
students. Through the years, the 
most popular Drew program with 
S.U. students has been the United 
Nations Semester which involves 
a twice-weekly seminar at the 
U.N. in New York City and an 
independent research paper on 
some aspect of the U.N. system. 
In addition, students also take 
one or two courses of their own 
choice on the Drew campus. 

In addition, Drew operates a 
number of strong semester-long 
academic programs abroad. One, 
in London, focuses on the study 
of British politics and culture. 
Another, in Brussels, emphasizes 
international economics as it 
focuses on a study of the Euro- 
pean Economic Community 
(Common Market). 

Other Drew programs are 
located in Washington, DC (for 
study of American politics) and in 
New York City (for study of con- 
temporary art). 

Dr. Jack Sanderson from the 
Drew study abroad office will be 
on the Susquehanna campus on 
Wednesday morning, Oct. 30, to 
speak with students interested in 
any of these programs. If you

Alpha Lambda Delta, a 
freshman honor fraternity, will 
be sponsoring a plant sale from 
Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 in Mellon 
Lounge of the Campus Center. 
The sale will take place on Thurs- 
day and Friday from 10-6, and on 
Saturday from 9-2. Come support 
Alpha Lambda Delta. 


The 1985-86 Artist Series of- 
fers six events rather than eight, 
as were offered last year. Lance 
Sadlek, Director of the Artist 
Series, feels that these six are 
"high quality events." 

The Artist Series is funded by 
season ticket holders, patrons, 
corporate sponsors, the Universi- 
ty's operating budget, grants such 
as the PA Council of the Arts 
Grant, and 26% or approximate- 
ly $18,780 by students. 

According to Lance Sadlek the 
planned events are "modernistic, 
yet they have the quality to in- 
terest the community." 

Sadlek feels that the amount of 
people who pick up tickets and do 
not attend a given performance is 
high, possibly because the tickets 
are free to students and faculty 
members. Even though tickets 
are offered to students at no cost, 
only approximately 14% of the 
Susquehanna University students 
attended the performance of the 
Joffrey II ballet. 

In order to make tickets con- 
veniently accessible to students, 
tickets will be available the week 
of a performance in the Campus 
Center basement, in front of the 
SGA SAC office from 11:30 to 
12 noon on Tuesday and Thurs- 

Sadlek hopes that students will 
realize this extra conscious effort 
to make tickets available, and 
that they will put forth an effort 
to attend the performances. 

Susquehanna University's stu- 
dents and faculty comprise ap- 
proximately one third of the Ar- 
tist Series' audience. This propor- 
tion can be increased, if students 
allow themselves to enjoy the 
reputable and talented entertain- 
ment groups that come to Sus- 
quehanna as part of the Artist 


Increase your awareness of the 
elderly: this Saturday the 
Doctor's Convalescent Seminar 
Series Project will be sponsoring 
a seminar on Aging. Henrietta 
Kepler from SUN Home Health 
Services and A. Robert Walker 
from Union and Snyder County 
Area Agency on Aging will be 
the guest speakers. They will 
speak about the services offered 
to the elderly and the decisions 
that elderly people must deal with 
today. The seminar is Saturday, 
Oct. 26 in Ben Apple Theater at 1 
p.m. Refreshments will be served. 
Please attend and bring a friend!

Halloween without a scary 
movie is like the caf. without Pol- 
ly! To keep your Halloween from 
being hum-drum and just plain 
no fun, the Honors Project will 
be showing two great flicks on 
Thursday night to get you in a 
truly ghouly mood. Starting at 9 
p.m., you can see "Slabs From 
our Labs"— a collection of clips 
from other great horror films, 
followed by "The Dead of the 
Night" (which should begin at ap- 
proximately 10:30). You can see 
both movies for just 50$! Don't 
miss this chance to scare your 
socks off! 

The Honors Project would also 
like to invite students to an infor- 
mal discussion with noted Har- 
vard Law Professor Abram 
Cashyes, who will be visiting the 
campus from Oct. 30 through 
Nov. 1. The topic will be 
"Military Technology and Inter- 
national Security." The talk will

It's Greek to Us 


Whew!! I've just finished my 
seven -page midterm essay and 
now am able to relax and write 
about the happenings up at 593 
over the past week. First of all, 
the brothers would like to con- 
gratulate all our newly initiated 
little sisters, including Henrietta 
Flingbucket who's just hanging 
around somewhere. We'd also 
like to send out very belated 
birthday wishes to Mrs. D...uh... 
I mean Holly Whittaker. Thanks 
for the cake Holly! Speaking of 
B'days, belated wishes go out to 
our own Jeff G. and Doug C. 
have happy ones guys, don't 
celebrate too much- the Cook 
School is still taking applications 
for enrollment. Speaking of the 
Cook School, one brother has 
just received his Masters from the 
institute. Hey, Pooh Bear, wash 
your hands lately? We must also 
congratulate Craig, Jim, Armand 
and by now, Sam, for the attain- 
ment of the covetted membership 
in the 100 club. We must also 
welcome brother Herb back from 
St. Louis where he did not get to 
use anything he took from Jeff. 
All he has to remind all of us that 
he went there is this damn 
whistle that bugs the hell out of 
us! This weekend was really ex- 
citing also. The tag- team com- 
petition was really a wild time for 
all who attended. The winners 
were Captain Louis Sweigard and 
Bill "the Superfly" Snuka. They 
were given the most competition 
from Rowdy Roddy Smith and 
Cindy "the fabulous Moolah" 
Walter. I can't wait to get my pic- 

tures back. All the action shots of 
Steve spilling all down his shirt 
may be interesting. Saturday 
night was also very interesting, 
but not worth moving furniture 
for. Dave, Eric, and Craig split 
about 10 bucks worth of drinks 
and ate all of Ken's pizza. One 

slice is still in Eric's lit book, all 
over Thoreau's greatest work. 
Brandy and pipes go well 
together, but not when you have 
mid-terms to study for, Dave. 
Hey, Trade and Sharon- you 
guys owe me a picture and 
Tracie, don't ever throw books at 
my roommate again! 

Well see your girls tonite 

A splendid time is guaranteed 

for all 

Scott out 


Hi, and welcome to the end of 
seventh week! Can you believe 
that midterms are here already? I 
hope everyone's been preparing 
for them. 

One matter of deep concern, 
especially on mine and Brillo's 
part, where are the poems? We 
are loyal to our pals! Come on, 
get with it! 

Well, we had another smashing 
good weekend, to say the least. 
Friday at Phi Sig started with 
some serious celebrating of our 
trophy award. Phyllis and Lisa 
did a good job of getting things 
off to a start with their drinks. 

YUM! And then there was 
Anita, Anita, Anita dancing her 
way to the top with Skip. But to 
top it all off was Gwen with Mr. 
John "Villanova" Travolta at Phi 
Sig in Saturday Night, not Live, 
but "Fever." Do it, Gwen! 

Another successful trip was 
made to Mansfield by Kris, 
Kathy and Ginny. Unfortunate- 
ly, for Kris, Gumby, the brown 
car and the white house (wait, 
that's backwards?) did not make 
the night a total success. Try 
again later though, maybe? 

Dottie, did you get all of your 
informing dirt for this week? I 
hope you don't use any for 
revenge purposes! 

Even though Val wasn't here 
this weekend she had an in- 
teresting one. Who's that guy 
from New York? Oh, he's only 
your brother. No dirt there! 

This Friday night should be an 
absolutely great time at the party 
with Phi Mu Delta. It starts at 
nine p.m. and don't forget your 

The biggest and best news of 
all is that we picked up four new 
pledges last week. Congratula- 
tions to Debbie Kopf, Kat Heller, 
Barb Harrison and Kristen 
Foster. Get psyched for some 
ZTA fun, girls! 

In Zeta Love (and especially 
you, Mr. PN),

greatly appreciated and will be 

We'd like to correct some 
things mentioned in the news two 
weeks ago. Our little sister VP is 
Erin Ector not Eric. And Dooey 
and I write this not Dooety. Sorry 
to those involved, but don't ask 
us why- we hand these things in 
typed. And speaking of handing 
things in; we did hand our Greek 
News in last week and for some 
reason ours, Lambda's, and AD- 
Pi's were not printed. This is also 
an explanation to why things ap- 
pearing this week may seem so 
late to mention. Hey! It's not our 

So let us go back two weeks 
ago to award Johnny Rambo 
with the AO W for the antics with 
the wall, Los, and my floor. 
Pledge Tom had the quote of the 
week with "Is there a wedding go- 
ing on here or something?" We'd 
like to thank Sigma Kappa and 
Phi Sigma Kappa for the parties 
with them so long ago. Again, it 
wasn't our fault! Anyway, the 
parties were great but Dooey is 
getting tired of administering the 
fun, I think. No one gives him 

Now moving up in time, our 
intramural football team had a 
good week a while back with two 
wins in two days. Way to go to 
the six (count 'em-six) guys who 
won the game with no time that 
Monday so long ago. 

I don't think I have to tell 
everyone what Friday was. There 
were enough signs all over cam- 
pus. It was a nice surprise, thanks 
for all the hugs. You're all 
ballsey!!! That night our party 
with Zeta Tau Alpha was 

On Sat. our house turned into 
a ship and the brothers were an- 
chored around the table for the 
first time this year. When they 
finally looked at the clock it was 
only nine o'clock!!! 

As far as last weeks AOW, 
Litey was close but Brucie won 
for his smashing appearance 
down in the cellar, his toying 
around with Tim, and a blatent 
garbage can miss. A special 
amendment was passed to go 
back in time to eventually give 
Rambo the quote (or in this case, 
quotes) of the week, last week. 
An anthology of his sayings will 
be in print soon and will include 
some favorites such as: "Costalos, 
You're out!" and "This is my 
baby!" And how can we forget 
"I've been working on this for 
five years!" The soon to be best 
seller shoud even include last 
year's apology quote as well. 

OK, now that we're all caught 
up— here's what's going on this 
weekend. We're all anxious to see 
what you little sisters have 
planned for our Halloween party 
tonight. Well all be prepared for 
a smashing time. Then, Saturday 
night we're having our first an- 
nual Phi Mu Delta Pig roast. 
Should be alot of fun, but too bad 
our biggest pig, Dooey, is not go- 
ing to be around. Looking to the 
week up coming, our ice cream 
sale will still be coming around to 

relieve you from that dry heat 
that this school likes to blast. So 

Lastly, OK! So the Giants lost 
to Cinn. But they romped over 
Wash, at the same time Philly 
squeeked out a win over the 
Cowboys. So now the Giants are 
chasing the Cowboys and taking 
over of course. Let's go Giants! 
Well we know it's alot but 
it's not our fault, 
Pumpkin and Dooey 
P.S. Tom— what's the oath? 
P.P.S. Yes, E. when the team

The countdown still continues 
and the dreadful deadline is draw- 
ing near...Howdown Showdown. 
This is the last weekend to rope 
your escort for a ride in the hay. 

Informal rush lived up to its 
name, all the sisters dressed more 
than appropriately for the occa- 
sion. It was certainly exciting 
meeting new people. Thanks to 
everyone who came! (Should I 
bear to say more?) 

Get psyched because this 
weekend we're gonna cocktail it 
up with Sig Ep. Fresh re- 
freshments for all to partake. 
Waitress uniforms not required 
to enjoy. 

Lost sister returns to campus: 
Kelly McKee was sighed on the 
very grounds of oV SU. It was so 
good to see her! Her absence cer- 
tainly has not gone un- 
noticed... We hope shell come 
back real soon, ya hear? 

B-day Babes: Birthday wishes are 
in order for Robyn Long and 
Susie B, and Alice Jeremko! Have 
fun getting older and legal. A 
Belated Birthday Baby is Miss 
Judi Redsecker. (Sorry for the 
delay, I'm not always on top of 
the poop in the barnyard). Pre- 
birthday wishes to roomie 
Katalina and the state of Pa. 
Off-campus news: In keeping 
with the upcoming holiday, 
Halloween, the boys of the ex- 
International House have ac- 
quired a ghost (It came with the 
house). This unruly phantom has 
reportedly been up to its tricks 
again, the usual tipping of 
radiators and such. Come see this 
horrible Herman - tickets sold at 
the door only, no reservations 

Correction: Once again inac- 
curacies were found in Alpha 
Delta Pi print. Diane B is not the 
mother of the cat in question, 
Remington. This poor feline's 
mother is still uncertain. Rumors 
have it that the cat had three 
mothers... can this be? It is against 
the law of nature, but Ms. Emer- 
son, Ms. Buffa, and Ms. Hansen 
all claim the kitty to be their own. 
I'm still in wonderment. 
Lost: A special party pal. .Miss 
Andrea M. Where have you 
been? I've been lost in a crowd 
w/o you. 

Late news: The volleyball game 
with ZTA (several weeks ago) 
was quite a success. I can't recall 
who won but I believe no nails 
were broken. ..quite an ac- 
complishment in itself. 
Gotta go

In case you were wondering, 
this column was lost in a time 
warp. This issue is intended for 
the weekend of the 26th of Oc- 

Here we are at Howdown Hay- 
day! Saturday should be a real 
blow out! I got a date-do you 
have yours? 

Due to circumstances beyond 
our control, the cocktails were 
not served at Sig Ep. Let's hope 
things work out real soon. 

Last weekend, New Men's was 
struck with football craze and 
poker fever. Jennifer Betts was 
awarded Most Valuable Player. 

Most Happy Birthdays are sent 
to Amy prez. face Bauman (alias: 
Bettle lover) and Kathy 
poodlehead-Rave (she's 20 and 

finally papertrained! I was afraid 
the pound took her away- it took 
her four days to find her way 
home!) Happy Birthday to you 

Sister Susie B. held a one- 
woman dance-a-thon. Generous 
contributions from the campus 
were received amounting to the 
large sum of 50*. All proceeds 
were donated to the Coca-cola 

Outstanding estudiante award 
was presented to Ms. Claudia 
Kuhn. She received an A last 
week for dressing stick figures. 
(And we didn't think she would 
make it in college) Congratula- 

A recent addition was made to

Hi Everyone, 

I trust everyone had a good 
weekend and studied hard for 
those exams. I hope all of the 
sisters enjoyed last Thursday's 
get together, because you can 
look forward to 2 more of those 
exciting PX retreats. 

This Wednesday, we 
celebrated our Founder's Day. It 
was our 88th Anniversary of the 
Founding of Kappa Delta Sorori- 
ty! It was our time to pay tribute 
to our four founding sisters. 
Thanks to all the administration 
who helped us celebrate this 
special day. 

Get ready for Halloween, 
costumes should be already com- 
pleted. Remember, the best 
costume wins the special prize,

Phi Sig would like to thank 
Drew Bagwell, one of our na- 
tional reps, for stopping by this 
past weekend. He is a terrific 
spokesman and he had some in- 
spiring ideas for the brotherhood. 
Thanks again Drew! 

Not much to say for the past 
weekend except that most of the 
brotherhood spent it inside the 
Blough Learning Center, (yea, 
right!) diligently studying for 
their mid-terms. After the exams, 
we all decided to have a pre- 
clavacle festivity a la Brigitte in 
the Buff. The holy septor was 
substituted by the golden grail 
which proved to be quite the 
event. All enjoyed the gala 
evening. Brothers Dart, Yak, 
Buddy, Dribbs, Messy, and Opie 
were lucky finishers. Better luck 
next time Crash. Until next time, 
dare to be different. 


Life is looking better all the 
time!! Especially since mid-terms 
are over! Get psyched for the air- 
band contest tomorrow night and 
for Aikens Oktoberfest! 

Everyone is probably wonder- 
ing why we're writing this 
together as one article. Both of us 
are suffering from severe mid- 
term nausea and frustration, and 
at the moment we are completely 
strung out on caffeine. Neither of 
us have much to report for now, 
but we would like to make one 
thing clear: the editors of "It's 

Greek to Us" only read over ar- 
ticles for type-O's and delete any 
obvious defamation of a person. 
We then turn this in to the 
editors of the paper. They choose 
what to print and we have no 
control over that. If your article 
is deleted, don't blame us. We 
don't appreciate it either. Maybe 
a letter to the editor would help. 
As for this week, we won't take 
up any more space. We'd like to 
say Greek Unity can exist! We 
just proved it! Have a fantastic 

P.S. The party with Phi Mu 
Delta was just heavenly. We 
want to get together again soon.

The Health Center has a well 
trained staff available to the 
students at anytime. It is open 
daily from 9-5; and a nurse can be 
reached by phone 24 hours a day. 
To see a staff member between 
11-1, an appointment is 
necessary. Not everyone can see 
the doctor, but the nurses are 
well trained to assist the students 
with their medical problems. If a 
nurse feels it is necessary for a 
student to see the doctor, she will 
set up an appointment. 

Dr. Michael Cordas, physician 
and staff director, has a practice 
in Selinsgrove and can be found 
at the health center. The nurse 
practioner, Beverly Milofsky, is 
in the center most days between 
11-12. She can diagnose illnesses 
and injuries and prescribe 
medication under supervision. 

She is available by appointment 
to give gynecological services 
every Tuesday afternoon from 
1-5 and every other Thursday 
from 3-7. The three nurses on the 
staff are Karen Thompson, head 
nurse, Jean Norris, and Diane 
Wall. The lab technologist is 
Richard Varnas. Also included in 
the staff are two student workers, 
whose responsibilities include 
billing, paper work, and filing, 

and three student drivers, who 
drive the health center car to ap- 
pointments and on emergencies. 

A major problem the Health 
Center is having is the abuse by 
students of class excuses. Please 
be aware of the Student Hand- 
book policy on class excuses: 

Class excuses will only be 
given upon the request of the stu- 
dent and at the discretion of the 
nurse and/or the physician. Ex- 
cuses are not provided unless the 
Health Center has verification of 
the illness. The nature of the ill- 
ness will not be disclosed without 
the written consent of the stu- 

The following are the only cir- 
cumstances under which medical 
class excuses will be issued: 

1 . The student must be seen by 
the Health Center prior to the 
time of class. 

2. Receipt of a statement from 
the attending physician at home. 
The statement must include the 
date, condition treated, and treat- 
ment given. 

3. Confinement to the hospital. 

4. Keeping of appointment 
with specialist made through the 
Health Center. 

Cunningham Reappointed 

Dr. Joel L. Cunningham has 
been reappointed as the Chair- 
man of the Sigma Chi 
Fraternity's Leadership Training 
Board. Cunningham, who was 
first selected as Chairman in 
1977, was named to the position 
by the Fraternity's International 
President, and will serve through 
mid- 1987. 

Cunningham chairs the nine- 
member board which is responsi- 
ble for planning and conducting 
the Fraternity's yearly Leader- 
ship Training Workshop. The 
Workshop, which annually at- 
tracts more than 900 
undergraduate and alumni 
leaders from Sigma Chi chapters 
throughout the United States and 
Canada, involves various lectures 
and discussions on ideas and 

methods for successful campus 
chapter operations, activities and 

The board also supervises the 
production of the Fraternity's 
chapter officer training manuals 
and coordinates its alcohol 
awareness programs. Cun 
ningham has been involved with 
the Fraternity's Workshop for 
more than 20 years. 

The Sigma Chi Fraternity has 
192 undergraduate chapters and 
more than 120 active alumni 
chapters throughout 43 states 
and four Canadian provinces, 
and more than 145,000 living 
members, student and alumni. It 
was founded in 1855 at Miami 
University, Ohio, and is head- 
quartered in Evanston, Illinois.

Some 668 students were 
treated at the health center in 
September for illnesses including 
viral flu, which hit early this year. 
Symptoms include fever, sore 
throat, and upset stomach. It 
lasts from 3-5 days. The flu 
causes a lower resistance which 
can lead to a possible second in- 
fection. Over-the-counter medica- 
tion is given. 

Charts are being reviewed to 
see who will be required to be up- 
dated on their immunization or

will be notified soon.

Spring Vacation 


When looking for the perfect 
place to spend your spring break, 
don't turn automatically to sunny 
Fort Lauderdale. There is one 
place few people consider and in 
all honesty, throughout my many 
years of being a travel agent I 
have never come across any place 
like it. 

At this perfect vacation 
hideaway the rain never falls till 
after sundown and by eight, the 
morning fog must disappear. In 
winter the snow may never slush 
upon the hillside and by nine p.m. 
the moon light must appear. In 
short there's simply not a more 
congenial spot for spring break 
vacationing then here in 

It's true, it's true, when you 
spend your spring break in 
Camelot you'll be treated like a 
member of the royal family. 
You'll be staying at King 

Arthur's Castle, a lovely stone 
facility with hundreds of rooms 
so there are always vacancies. No 
need to miss out on all the ex- 
citing entertainment offered at 
Camelot, there are performances 
everyday by the court magician 
Merlin, (this is a limited engage- 
ment, he is due to be spirited 
away by the golden-voiced 
nymph, Nimue any day now). 
Every week new tournaments are 
held in which you, the Camelot 
vacationer can sword fight with 
Sir Dinadan or have a go at 
jousting with Sir Lionel. But be 
warned, don't attempt to fight 
the champion of the castle, Sir 
Lancelot. It's been rumored that 
he's never been defeated in battle 
or tournament. There are also 
some nasty rumors about he and 
your hostess, Queen Guenevere, 
but don't mention them to your 
host, King Arthur, he is a bit sen-

Attention everyone! Here is 
another episode on my continu- 
ing efforts to fund my Vermont 
ski trip. Recently I hopped up to 
New York to visit "Mother Ski 
Bunny" and while there, was able 
to acquire some really fantastic 
items for my garage sale (see 
September 27, 1985 issue of "The 
Crusader"). These items include: 
a variety of new and slightly used 
bottles of not-so-vintage wines 
(secured by rolling drunks in the 
park); a wide selection of purses, 
most contents still intact 
(snatched from little old ladies on 
the subway); and last, but not 
least, a treasure of collectibles 
(secured by mugging bagladies in 
the alley). Collecting the above 
articles provied quite beneficial in 
begging me physically fit for the 
ski trip— some of those old 
geezers, especially the bagladies, 
are really tough! Oh, I almost 
forgot. In the food line, please do 
not donate peanuts, breadcrumbs 
or popcorn, as I already have an 
ample supply of these items (bor- 
rowed from the pigeons and 
squirrels in the park). More later, 
this column.

The Investigation, 

or Why Couldn't I Find David Letterman Last Night 

Monday and Tuesday were ex- 
am days here at ole SU I was 
weary of my studies late Monday 
night, and decided to relax a bit. 
So, on went the television set for 
relaxing hour of David Letter- 
man or Star Trek or Twilight 
Zone or anything. 

There I was, flipping that dial 
(actually pushing a button, my 
set has remote control) down to 
Channel 2, looking for David. 
There was nothing, blank, zero, 
static, fuzz, well you get the pic- 
ture. I tuned around the Channel 
8, another NBC station. There is 
a "community bulletin board" 
there! "What's the deal here?" I 
cry aloud. At that moment, I 
resolved to begin "The Investiga- 
tion. I wanted to know why I 
couldn't find David Letterman. 

Tuesday morning came. I blew 
off two important exams to 
follow my fierce determination to 
discover the secret hoax the cable 
system was perpetrating. I made 
a phone call. No answer. 
Another. No answer. Another. 
Still no answer. I was getting 
angrier by the minute. 

I jumped into my car and 
roared out of the parking lot, 


almost running over the prof of 
one of the classes I skipped today. 
I sped through Selinsgrove, 
sideswiping a State Police car. I 
flew up the strip, and crossed the 
bridge into Sunbury. I screeched 
to a halt in front of Service Elec- 
tric Cable's headquarters. I 
pushed past the twenty or so 
demonstrators who were pro- 
testing that they couldn't find 
David Letterman on the TV last 
night. I burst through the door 
and screamed, "Where was 

The secretary burst into tears 
and said, "Wait ... sob ... Ill tell 
you everything . . . sob, sob . . . 
We had to make some ad- 
justments to improve the picture 
quality, so we rearranged some 
channels, that's all." 

"Okay," I said. "I guess 111 
believe you. So where are all the 
channels now?" 

Here is the list of information 
that she gave me. This is my last 
statement from the county jail, 
where they put me today after 
sideswiping that police car. 
Tomorrow they execute me. It 
was all worth it. . . .

Continued from page 2 
Even that simple white stationary 
and letterhead upon which we 
students occasionally receive of- 
ficial tetters is tainted by the 
DOPES. If you look closely at the 
paper, a large circle with a picture 
and some writing becomes slight- 
ly visible. This is, according to 
Drip, one of the craftiest methods 
that the department has come up 
with yet. 

Even the cafeteria itself is not 
immune to the DOPES. While 
eating, we are consistently bom- 

barded with subtle music contain- 
ing carefully written suggestive 
lyrics such as, "More oat-meala" 
dubbed over "Oh, oh Sheila" or 
"Eat our dessert" over "We are 
the world." Listen one morning 
when it's quiet in there! 

After discovering this for 
myself, I decided to talk to Dave 
Sweigard, an experienced 
cafeteria worker and A.R. A. con- 
fidant. He told me in private: 

"You better shut up, kid. You 
really don't know what you're 
dealing with here. You really

don't, get it? You ought to find 
something nice and quaint to ask 
about, like where milk comes 
from or something, OK? These 
guys are already watching you. I 
heard them say that they're going 
to sabotage your story. You 
know, pit their sub-advertising 
against you in the paper. They 
were talking about putting it in 
"Oscar" and in the personals. 
Maybe even in your thing itself. 
You better just forget it." 

What does all this have to do 
with the construction? The bar- 
rage of noise that we've had to 
endure over the past several 
weeks from jackhammers and the 
like is part of a new experiment to 
weaken our defenses and make us 
more susceptible due to lack of 
sleep. So was the "unexplained" 
ringing of Seibert's fire alarm at 
three in the morning. It's be- 
ginning to make sense, isn't it. 

The DOPES headquarters is 
located off campus, in a strange 
white tower on a hilltop west of 
the campus. It is from here that 
the department may watch us 
while keeping sufficiently out of 
sight. Although it is colored to 
blend in naturally with the 
typically cloudy Susquehanna 
sky, you can see this tower easily 
from the side of Weber Chapel 
nearest the Campus Center. It 
rises up quite deviously on the 
near southwest horizon. We are 
under surveillance on campus 
itself, however, through wide- 
angle lenses implanted in the 
walls of dorms and a few other 
buildings. These lenses look like 
the red eyes of the computer Hal 
from the movie 200 1, except they 
are blue here and are always 
placed above fire extinguisher 
cabinets. Smile and say hello 
when you go by one. 

The latest information that I 
have received concerning the 
DOPES is that their current con- 
tract includes a massive push to 
get students to buy more candy 
and soda from S.U.'s machines 
late at night...have you been ex- 
tra hungry lately? With the in- 
stallation of their latest device, 
the high-frequency recordings in 
the chapel chimes (the installa- 
tion is what threw off the chime 
schedule earlier this term), the 
Department of Psychological Ex- 
perimentation in Subliminal 
Advertising is now a power that 
we must come to face boldly. So 
next time you suddenly feel an 
urge to do something, make sure 
you aren't being duped by the 

P.S. If you find any more of 
the DOPES' devices, write to me 
c/o the Crusader. Thank you.

Mistakes Hurt Crusaders 

One could tell from the outset 
that it wasn't going to be Sus- 
quehanna's day. When the 
Crusaders lined up on defense, on 
the first play of the game, who 
would have thought that Mora- 
vian would score on a 60 yard 
bomb. Yes, that's what hap- 
pened. After returning the open- 
ing kickoff to their own 40 yard 
line, the Greyhounds went to the 
bank and cashed in. The result 
was the 60 yard touchdown pass, 
from Scott Rhinehart to wide 
receiver James Lasko. 

Answering back, Susquehanna 
put together a respectable 16 play 
64 yard drive aided by a roughing 
the kicker penalty against Mora- 
vian. The drive was capped by a 
25 yard field goal by Randy 



Chaplain's Corner — 


No matter where you look — 
books! books! books! People 
buy them, read them, write 
them, give them, keep them, 
shelf them. No matter where 
you look around here — 
books, books, books!!! We 
even have one building alone 
that is dedicated to making 
them available in the widest 
possible assortment to the 
greatest number of people — 
from early to late — seven 
days a week. And according to 
James Smillie (that man 
whose name, face and per- 
sonality are all-as-one) advises 
that as of Tuesday, October 
22, 1 985, we have no less than 
1 33,500 of them (by actual ac- 
count) housed, yearning to be 
read, in the Blough Learning 
Center. Now all of this is 
simply to suggest that when 
we come to worship this Sun- 
day at eleven in Weber Chapel 
Auditorium the sermon will 
bear the title (of all things), 
"Man With The Book." It 
could be interesting — ! (A 
pleasant aside — always there 
are "new" people coming to 
chapel Sunday at eleven — 
and that's happy thought!) 


Posar. Fueling the Crusader at- 
tack was the balanced running of 
Kevin Gormley, John Lotti, and 
Joseph Witt. Ken Hughes added 
a crucial third down pass to Mike 
Leitzel that kept the drive alive. 
The Crusaders were faced with a 
tough decision on fourth down 
and one, but decided to go for the 
the field goal and what turned 
out to be Susquehanna's only 
score of the day. 

On the following drive, one 
that covered 73 yards on 9 plays, 
Moravian started to pull away. 
The drive was highlighted by the 
passing of Rhinehart and the 
receiving of Lasko and Kenneth 
Buggy. The Greyhounds also 
showed a fine running game, 
with Buggy and teammate Jim 
Joseph grinding out yardage 
along the way. 

On the ensuing kickoff, Sus- 
quehanna could not get it 
together and had to punt. Mora- 
vian, starting on their own 42 
yard line, were slapped with a 
holding penalty on first down and 
on the next play with illegal mo- 
tion. This took some wind out of 
the Greyhound's sails and they 
punted back to the Crusaders. 

After exchanging possessions, 
Moravian's defense got in on the 
scoring. The Crusaders were 
putting together a drive, when 
Richard DeLong scooped up a 
Joseph Witt fumble and rambled 
35 yards for the score. The extra 
point was wide right and Mora- 
vian was on their way to a vic- 

There was no scoring for the 
next ten minutes, until Moravian 
intercepted a Ken Hughes pass. 
On second and 16, David 
Matlack returned his theft to the 
Crusader seven yard line. Then, 
three plays later, tight end Tim 
McLaughlin hauled in a 3 yard 
touchdown pass to up 
Moravian's lead to 27-3. There 

was no more scoring and the first 
half came to an end. 

The second half saw Sus- 
quehanna march up the field to 
the Moravian 28 yard line, when 
defensive back Scott Stanilious 
intercepted a Ken Hughes pass. 
Moravian took off on a drive that 
showed their power running 
game. A combination of the 
running by Joseph and Buggy 
tired out the Crusader defense 
and set up a 24 yard touchdown 
run by Mark Masessa. This made 
the score 34-3 in favor of Mora- 
vian and that's how it ended. 

Tomorrow, Susquehanna 
squares off against Lebanon 
Valley on the road. The Cru- 
saders are still searching for their 
initial victory, good luck guys! 
Barry Sheibley 

SU Harriers 10-0 

Over the last two weeks the 
Susquehanna cross country team 
has increased its record to 10-0. 
Two weeks ago the Crusaders 
faced Western Maryland & 
Messiah colleges and handed 
defeat to both colleges. Their 
flawless record has sent a strong 
message out to their rival MAC 
teams that SU harriers do not 
take their MAC title defense 

This last weekend, Susquehan- 
na ran against Juniata College at 
the difficult Juniata home course, 
which is on the side of a moun- 
tain. The team ran well and came 
away with a 20-43 victory! The 
top seven SU runners were all 
within one second of each other. 

In the upcoming week, Sus- 
quehanna will be challenged by 
both F & M and Gettysburg. 
These teams should prove to be 
good competition for the strong 
S.U. team.

FYI: Shoplifting 

Coffee House 


Oct Z8 

8:00t>m <p 

Retail theft (shoplifting) in the 
state of Pennsylvania is a more 
serious crime than you may 
realize. Retail theft is defined as 

the taking of, possession of, car- 
rying away of, transferring of, or 
causes to be carried away or 
transferred, any merchandise 
displayed or offered for sale by 

any store, with the intent of not 
paying the full retail value of the 
item. Altering, transferring or 
removing labels, price tags with 
the intent to deprive the mer- 
chant of the full retail value is 
also retail theft. 

Any person intentionally con- 
cealing unpurchased items of any 
store, either on the premises or 
outside the premises of such 
store, shall be evidence that the 
person or persons intended to 
deprive the merchant of the full 
retail value. 

Any merchant, merchant 
employee, peace officer, who has 
probable cause to believe that 
retail theft has occurred, or is oc- 
curring, on or about a store, may 
detain you in a reasonable man- 
ner for a reasonable time on or 
off the premises and require iden- 
tification to determine if you 
have unpurchased merchandise 
in your possession or to notify 
police or security officers. 

Retail theft is stealing 
regardless of the amount, 
although for first offenders the 

amount of the item can deter- 
mine the penalty. A first offense, 
when the value of the item is less 
than $150.00, is a summary of- 
fense. For summary offenses, 
fines up to $300.00 plus costs 
(and/or 90 days in prison), can be 
assessed by the magistrate. If the 
value of the item is more than 
$150.00 you can face a (first 
degree) misdemeanor charge. 

If you are over sixteen years of 
age, before any trial or entry of a 
plea can be made in summary 
cases, you will be ordered by the 
issuing authority to be finger 
printed within five days at a 
municipal or Pennsylvania State 
Police station for the purpose of 

determining if any prior offenses 
have been committed or for iden- 
tification in any future offenses. 
Direct any questions you may 
have regarding retail theft to 
Campus Security, ext. #428.

Chayes Departs 

Abram Chayes, the U.S. 
lawyer, scholar, and educator 
who is representing Nicaragua 
in the world court in its case 
against the U.S., paid a visit to 
Susquehanna University Oct. 
30 through Nov. 1. 

Nicaragua's case involves the 
U.S. support of the so-called 
contra movement and the min- 
ing of that country's harbors 
by persons allegedly under the 
supervision of the United 
States Intelligence Agency. Dr. 
Chayes' decision to represent 
the South American nation has 
become very controversial in 
recent weeks. He discussed the 
issue in greater detail in a 
public lecture titled "Nicaragua, 
the United States and the 

"World Court" Wed., Oct. 30 
at 8 p.m. in Seibert 

Dr. Chayes has been on the 
faculty of Harvard Law School 
since 1965. and was a legal ad- 
viser to the United States 
Department of State during the 
Kennedy administration. He is 
also a trustee of the World 
Peace Foundation and vice 
president of the Albert Einstein 
Peace Prize Foundation. 

During his visit to Sus- 
quehanna University, Dr. 
Chayes also discussed the 
issues involved in the "star 
wars" defense system. He 
spoke in a number of public 
lectures, as well as during 
regularly scheduled classes dur- 
ing the day. 

Sachs to Speak 

The Sigmund Weis Memorial 
Lectureship in Business is pre- 
senting a lecture given by Brice 
Sachs, on Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. in 
Seibert Auditorium. His lecture, 
called "Finding the Optimal 
Balance between Business Career 
and Personal Priorities," will con- 
centrate on family life. Prior to 
the lecture, Mr. Sachs will be 
presented with an honorary Doc- 
tor of Laws degree. After his 20 
minute lecture, he will have a 
period for responding to com- 
ments from the audience. 

As his lecture will prove, Brice 
Sachs' priorities in his life are 
family, job, and current events. 
To better understand and con- 
structively contribute to the lives 
of other people in his major ob- 
jective. A graduate of Stevens In- 
stitute of Technology, he is cur- 
rently working in London, 
England^ as vice-president of 
Esso Europe; senior executive for 
Exxon's Natural Gas, Coal, and 
Synthetic Fuels business 
throughout Europe/Africa, and 
for all Exxon business activities 

in Benelux. 

Since 1951, he has been an 
employee of Exxon and worked 
as an engineer, during which 
three and a half years were spent 
with U.S. Naval Research. 

In 1960, he transferred to Ex- 
xon International Company for 
twelve years of extensive world- 
wide travel. In 1970 as Vice- 
President of E1C, he was respon- 
sible for Exxon's world-wide 
crude oil and product trading ac- 
tivities. He was also Deputy Cor 
porate Planning Manager of Ex- 
xon Corporation for 4 years. 

The Sigmund Weis Memorial 
Lectureship in Business was 
established by -Mrs. Claire G. 
Weis in memory of her husband. 
Sigmund Weis, who graduated 
with honors from Susquehanna 
in 1955, founded Weis Markets 
Incorporated. The purpose of 
Weis Lectureship is to bring pro- 
minent persons from public life 
and business to speak on matters 
of interests to the campus.

Hungarian Symphony Tour 

On Sunday, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., 
the Susquehanna University 
Artist Series will present the 
Hungarian State Symphony 
Orchestra in the Weber Chapel 
Auditorium. This symphony or 
chestra is Hungary's oldest and 
most prestigious and will be 
making its first appearance in 
North America since 1973. 

Adam Fischer, who is a fre- 
quent conductor of almost every 

major European symphony or- 
chestra, will appear with the 
Hungarian State Symphony. He 
is currently the Music Director of 
the renowned Freiburg Theatre, 
located in West Germany. 

In the spring of 1981, Mr. 
Fischer made his American opera 
debut conducting the San Fran- 
cisco Opera production of 
Mozart's "Don Giovanni." He 
made his American orchestral 

debut in the 1983-84 season, con- 
ducting the Boston Symphony or- 

The Hungarian State Sym-

U.S. Lawyers 

Jeane J. Kirkpatrick 

At the Hague, Nicaragua's 
case against the United States' 
government continues to display 
some unusual characteristics. 

It is the first time— old hands 
say— that lawyers and witnesses 
have opposed their own country 
in the World Court. The court, 
after all, deals with issues be- 
tween governments, not persons. 
Heretofore, governments have 
relied on their own nationals to 
represent them and citizens have 
supported their governments. 
Now, Managua is accusing the 
United States of major violation 
of international law for organ- 
izing, funding and directing the 
anti-Sandinista forces (the con- 
tras), and for mining Nicaragua's 

To press its case against the 
United States government inside 
the International Court of 
Justice, the government of 
Nicaragua has retained an inter- 
national team headed by

Dear Editor: 

You probably didn't expect a 
response to your editorial in 
"Our Corner...", Oct. 18, from 
a parent, and it likely won't be 
the opinion you desire, but 
from my understanding of the 
situation in South Africa, I feel 
compelled to send it. 

Our family has been privi- 
leged by knowing Rev. Andrew 
Losier and his wife, Dorothy, 
missionaries who lived in South 
Africa for 41 years, prior to 
their retirement. The Losiers 
founded the Christian 
Literature and Bible Centre, 
Inc., Durban, S.A., and have 
distributed free Christian 
literature in over 50 languages 
much of that time. According 
to the Losiers, the South 
African government, under 
white minority rule, has been 
more benevolent and compas- 
sionate toward the black ma- 
jority than any leader the lat- 
ter has elected or had placed 
in power from among their 
own in other provinces. We've 
all heard of the bloody 
massacres, the death marches, 
the starvation, and other 
violence perpetrated by 
Mugabe, and ldi Amin Dada, 

Our Corner 

A big, universal "hello" to each 
Mom and Dad. Nice to have you 
here for Parents Weekend. This 
weekend the campus is sprucing 
up for the festivities. My room- 
mate and I are even going to 
vacuum the carpet for the first 
time in nine weeks (sorry, no 
dusting until Thanksgiving). 

As much as I hate to dampen 
the mood, something must be 

said. The incidents of vandalism 
on this campus are becoming ap- 
palling. Within the last two 
weeks, a virtual epidemic of 
events have occurred. 

Item: Windows were broken in 
the greenhouse beside Fisher. 
This does not hurt the Universi- 
ty; students have projects in there 
and they are the ones suffering.

but there is much we haven't 

What we do hear and see, 
through out liberal media, is 
just what the Soviets have 
ordered and want us to see. 
Testimonies of some of the 
black chieftains who fled the 
communist-inspired regimes, as 
well as horror stories from the 
lips of other blacks, have 
proven that the violence is be- 
ing kindled and directed by the 
Soviets. The latter must be 
laughing at the gullibility of 
the U.S.A. citizens who are 
crying for economic sanctions 
and divestment. If all we know 
is what we read in the papers, 
then we don't really know it 

The Republic of South 
Africa has been a friend of the 
U.S.A. for years and it is im- 
portant to us. Its location and 
its natural resources are vital 
to world trade and to our 
economy. The Soviet plan is to 
surround us and to cut off our 
supplies. If they alienate our 
youths in the meantime, that's 
another big plus for them. So 
Susquehanna University, don't 
let it happen!

the library. I don't see any motive 
for this. Overdue books and an 
outstanding 75* fine? 

Item: Patio furniture was 
thrown off the Degenstein Cam- 
pus Center balcony. This is a 
pointless expression of... I can't 
even guess. 

Item: The hockey goal was 
finally broken after being dragged 
around each weekend. 

Item: A ten-speed bike was 
stolen after being left unlocked 
for only one night. 

Item: Vents were ripped out of 
a parked car by Aikens. 

Item: My car windows were 
soaped. That's the kind of van- 
dalism that should be done. It 
doesn't hurt anyone or anything, 
and has a certain amount of 
humor to it. Somebody loves me, 
according to what they wrote. 

There are enough items here to 
start a five and dime. How can 
this be stopped? Heck, I don't 
even know why it started. Let's 
just remember that we're all 
grown up now. With Mom and 
Dad here, I assume everyone will 
behave. Why don't we see if we 
can do it after they're gone? 
C'mon, boys and girls, we're sup- 
posed to be a community of 
friends, not a band of inmates. 
Enjoy the weekend and get ready 
for week number 10. 


The Phenolumn 

XIII. Cleaning Room 

by Doug Chamberlin 

(Apologies to Robert Frost and 
all readers of his poem "Mend- 
ing Wall") 

Something there is that doesn't 

love a college clothes 

That sends a sloppy laziness 

into us 
And leaves filthy clothes lying 

in the sun on the floor, 
And makes smelly piles even 

two Lysols cannot contest. 
The mess from parties is 

another thing: 
I have cleaned up after them 

and made repair 
Where friends have left not 

one clean shirt upon a shelf, 
But they would have them all 

over the floor, 
To trash the helpless room. 

The mess 1 mean, 
No one has seen it made or 

heard it made, 
But at Sunday wash time we 

find it there. 
I let my roommate know in 

the morning; 
And after lunch we meet to 

walk the floor 
And set the dirty clothes in 

hampers once again. 
We clear the mess around us 

as we go. 
To each the crusty socks that 

have fallen to each. 
And some are dirt-caked and 

so nearly disgusting 
We have to use a pencil to 

pick them up: 
"Yeaach, 111 never write with 

that again!" 
We stuff our hampers full 

with stale sweatjackets. 
Oh, just another kind of college 

One on a side. It comes to 

little more: 
There it is where we do not 

need two separate hampers: 

Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the' 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus 

His shirts are all mono- 

grammed one fraternity and 

mine another. 
My letters will never jump 

across to his clothes 
And suddenly make him a 

different person, I tell him. 
He only says, "Good hampers 

make good roommates." 
Weekends are the mischief in 

me, and I wonder 
If I could put a notion in his 

"Why do they make good 

roommates? Isn't it 
Where they wear two different 

sizes? But here we are both 

Before I'd flatter myself with 

my own personal hamper I'd 

ask to know 
What I was segregating in or 

segregating out, 
And to whom I was like to 

Something there is that doesn't 

love a college clothes 

That wants it's contents strewn 

about." I could say "slop- 

piness" to him, 
But it's not sloppfness exactly, 

and I'd rather 
He said it for himself. I see 

him there, 
Taking his greek shirt grasped 

firmly by the letters 
In each hand, like a jealous 

child clinging to it's Teddy 

He lives to sort things as it 

seems to me, 
Not of the room only and it's 

carpet of stained Tee-Shirts. 
He will not go behind his lust 

for organization, 
And he likes having developed 

it so well 
He says again, "Good hampers 

make good roommates."

Friday, November 1, 1985— THE CRUSADER-Page 3 



Exiled South African jour- 
nalist Donald Woods will talk 
about his writing and his pro- 
fession during a special session 
of the "Writers at Work" series 
sponsored free to the public by 
Bucknell University. 

The seminar will be Ikiu 
Monday, Nov. 4, at noon in 
Rooms 241 A and 24 IB in the 
University Center at Bucknell. 
Woods also will deliver a 
public speech titled "Apartheid 
and the Tragedy of South 
Africa" at 8 p.m. on Nov. 4 in 
the Vaughan Literature 

In 1977, when Woods was 
the editor-in-chief of the South 
African newspaper "Daily 
Dispatch," he was arrested and 
punished without legal pro- 
cesses for publishing details of 
the killing of a young black 
leader by officers of the State 
Security Police in South Africa. 
His virtual house arrest was 
imposed for five years, but 
after three months, following 
personal attacks on members of 
his family, Woods escaped with 
his wife and five children 
across the border into the 
black-ruled country of Lesotho. 

He has written several books 
on South Africa and has 
briefed many governments, in- 
cluding the United States Con- 
gress, on the subject of apart-

better our campus guests dur- 
ing this Parents Weekend, the 
location of two Saturday, Nov. 
2 events has been changed. 
"Parents Forum," scheduled for 
9:45 a.m. and "Scholar Out of 
the Classroom" at 10:30 a.m.

Parents and students are in- 
vited to attend both of these 
sessions, and should feel free to 
tour Seibert Hall at their con- 
venience. Refreshments will be 
available in the lobby

Just a quick note to remind 
everyone that it is time for all 
students to pre register for your 
classes next semester. Pre- 
registration beings next week 
from Nov. 4-8. All advisors 
have their sign-up sheets posted 
for individual appointments. It 
is advised you should make 
your appointments early so you 

are able to get the classes you 

The normal course load is 
12 to 18 semeter hours. If any 
more than 18 are needed, you. 
must apply for a course 

Alex Smith advises that 
everyone should begin early to 
avoid schedule difficulties; and 
all should have back-up courses 
just in case you are unable to 
get into the class you want.

It's Greek to Us 


Hello and Happy Friday! 
Welcome SU parents. It is finally 
that time for us to eat well and go 
shopping with Mom. 

The celebration of our 88th 
IFounder's Day of Kappa Delta 
last week proved to be quite suc- 
cessful. Thank you to the faculty 
for celebrating with us. 

Speaking of celebrations, the 
spooks were really in rare form 
on Thursday night at Lambda 
Chi Alpha. Thanks guys for the 
great party. We all had a wild 
time, right "ghouls?" 

Congratulations goes to our 
football team for their well- 
deserved victory over Lebanon 
Valley last week with a final 
score of 45-14. When we win, we 
win big! Good luck tomorrow!! 

Well, Project Excellence 
meetings have come to an end, 
but our goals, ideas and spirit are 
definitely going to continue. 
Through PX it gave us the oppor- 
tunity to reach out to each other 
and show ourselves how much 
Kappa Delta really means, and 
what we can become. It is a time 
that we really realize we have to 
reach out to each other, not slip 
away. We are the Kappa Delta's, 
We are the Kappa Delta's let's 
give a cheer for KD!! 

Before I go I'd like to share a 
special thought with you: 
What is life? 

Life is a Challenge Meet it 

Life is a Gift Accept it 

Life is an Adventure Dare it 

Life is a Sorrow Overcome it 

Life is a Tragedy Face it 

Life is a Duty Perform it 

Life is a Game P!ay it 

Life is a Mystery Unfold it 

Life is a Song Sing it 

Life is an Opportunity Take it 

Life is a Journey Complete it 

Life is a Promise Fulfill it 

Life is a Beauty Praise it 

Life is a Struggle Fight it 

Life is a Goal Achieve it 

Life is a puzzle Solve it 

Have a great weekend! 



We would like to thank 
everyone who bought buttons 
from us for Parents Weekend to 
support Alzheimer's disease. 
Your efforts are greatly ap- 
preciated. They are still on sale 
today and will also be sold during 
the football game tomorrow. 

Thanks to all the girls who 
came down last night to celebrate 
Halloween at our House! It's 
great to see that everyone had a 
devil of a good time! Each of you 
are welcome with us anytime! 

Belated birthday wishes go out 
to our ever so lovable sister 
"Cheese" (alias Ann Straka) who 
celebrated on the 28th. Flea, 
Skiet,...l mean Felicia McCly- 
mont (you know, that field 
hockey player) will be leaving her 
teen years behind on Nov. 6. 

This week's Sigma spotlight 
falls upon seniors Judy Sholtis 
and Deb Wengryn. Deb and Judy 
live as roommates down at the 
house. Deb is a comp. sci. major 
with a 3.5 GPA and is a member 
of SU's softball team. She is also 
treasurer of our sorority. Judy is 
a sociology major with, what 
roommate Deb describes as a "2 
something" GPA and is the star 
pitcher of SU's softball team. She 
also runs both the volleyball and 
girl's basketball intramural pro- 
grams. Their favorite professor 
on campus is Frank Chase. Bwell, 
Balright. Judy's favorite word is 
"stunning." Deb's favorite word 
is "fabulous." The highlight of 
their lives will occur over 
Christmas break when they 
travel to Germany to visit one of 
their best friends. Though neither 
of them know any German they 
have developed the universal 
code word "schnitzel" which will 
get them anything they want. 
Both were found with tears of 
happiness last week when they 
found out that the American 
dollar will buy more over there 
than it does here 

The semi-formal is fast ap- 
proaching. November 9th is the 
big day, so get psyched and get 
ready for the best time ever. 

Parents- Welcome! And best of 
luck to all participating in sports 
and the musical. Enjoy your 
weekend.. ..And until your eyes 
meet Sigma print again. ..RBG 


The brothers would like to 
start off this week by wishing our 
own Tim Vile and his fiancee 
Wendy all the best for a wonder- 
ful future and of course we all 
look forward to the marriage of 
Kirk and Kristen this May. We'd 
also like to thank our little sisters 
for making this weekend a nice 
diversion from Schaefer City. 
We'd like to report that our in- 
tramural volleyball team is doing 
well, and that our Sunday after- 
noon football has been going 
well, also. Horror night at 593 
was something that will live (or 
die) in infamy! The Halloween 
festivities were also enjoyed by 
all. Nice costume, Mr. Cook! The 
painting in Harrisburg went well, 
with lots of pizza and drink to go 
around. We'd like to bid a warm 
welcome to all the parents who 
will visit our humble abode this 
weekend. As a reminder, parents 
of little sisters and rushees are 
also welcome for the reception 
after the football game. In 
closing, the brothers would like to 
send get well wishes to our presi- 
dent who's been locked away in 
his room for awhile. We'd also 
like to send our our thanks to our 
little sister Juliet who has re- 
ceived about 100 dollars for our 
keg roll, which will take place on 
Nov. 10. The proceeds will go to 
preventing Leukemia; please sup- 
port this worthwhile cause. If 
you're lucky, you might catch us 
on TV pushing that keg down 

The quote of the week: 
"I've never seen rain like this" 
The Young Ones 


Sorry for last weeks absence in 
the news column, but the writer 
was lost somewhere in the moun- ■ 
tains of Northern Jersey without 
food and water for 4 days. How 
was everyone's Halloween?! 
Ghoulish I trust! Theta Chi 
would like to welcome all the 
parents to SU, and especially the 
ever so special parents of the 
Theta Chi brothers; we love you. 

All the noise last Friday night 
was provided by our special, once 
a year, psychotic game of capture 
the keg. Despite the fact that the 
B team was a bunch of scrapy 
hounds, they still managed to 
beat the even scrapier A team, 
(no matter what the outcome, we 
always enjoy- thanks Pinhead!) 
Saturday night's party with the 
Freshman went well, we hope to

you're always welcome. Be on the

engagements in the near future. 

Last weekend, Theta Chi 
helped out the handicapped 
organization known as HAND, 
with a community service project 
to aid and assist handicapped peo- 
ple by gathering information for 
an accessibility guide. Brother 
goofball, as in electric, was the 
lucky recipient of an earring last 
weekend, we were told he took it 
like a man, without novicane. 
Mr. Government (Darren), has 
been seen having lunch with 
Pres. Reagan; and was seen last 
week at a local bar sucking down 
a few, but we won't assume that 
Mr. G will be running for office. 
I'm sure you all remember 
brother "Bobby," well, he's off to 
the jungles of Nam to free the 
POW's, please send your prayers; 
he likes that kind of stuff. 
Another newsflash...Sting's hair 
is growing back! Could it be that 
we may see him without that hat, 
maybe he'll even start washing 
his hair again. 

Till we meet again... 
everything under the sun is in 
tune, but the sun is eclipsed by 
the moon- figure that out! 

Hi Mom, Hi Dad 



Finally Parents Weekend has 
arrived!!! Welcome to all the 
Mama's and Daddy's! We hope 
everyone gets a chance to see the 
Crusader football game and 
"Camelot!" May everyone have a 
good visit and a wonderful day! 

Alpha Delta Pi is proud to an- 
nounce they are the subject of an 
ABC Afternoon School Special 
based on their recent Howdown 
Experience. This feature pre- 
sentation is entitled "Sisters of 
the Corn." Several people will 
have key roles in this movie. 
Mellissa portrays a young-adult 
instructor of mouth-to-mouth 
resuscitation who specialized in 
group demonstrations in 
Volkswagons and hay ride excur- 
sions. We are thrilled to have her 
display this important life saving 
technique as a public service to 
all. Honorary Sister Diane play a 
woman with a porcelain obses- 
sion. Her dramatization should 
prove to all the terrors of visiting 
a restroom alone. Violence is seen 
in the hay ride segment— an in- 
nocent escort Aric becomes a 
tractor casualty, leaving poor 
Wendy dateless. This quick 
thinking resourceful girl finds 
virile Robby to fill in. When 
tragedies strike one must always 
be prepared. Dave plays a klutzy 
college student who finds he can't 
hold anything smaller than a 
bread box. Finding herself a vic- 
tim of brutal kidnappers, Kris 
Hauhuth found herself dose- 
doing. The cruelty of modern kid- 
nappers escapes imagination. Not 
only does this movie contain 
ADPi in rare form, but also local 
residents can be spotted in 
various scenes. Especially, look 
for the fork-bearded farmer sport- 
ing salt pellets in the pit-stop 
scene. "Sisters of the Corn" will 
be aired soon. Look for the time

Howdy. Hopefully everyone 
did a superb job on all their mid- 
terms and now are prepared for 
an even better seven weeks. To 
start off I'm sure everyone had an 
enjoyable Halloween on Thurs- 
day, but always remember you 
cannot trick-or-treat in Selins- 
grove. You never know what sort 
of trick-or-treat you will receive. 

The past weekend was a very 
eventful one for all who are in- 
volved with Phi Mu Delta. It 
started off on Friday evening 
with the best round of golf that 
every brother ever shot in their 
entire lives. Shame couldn't even 
surpass that 9 hole score. Of 
course, everyone figured that 
Digby would somehow win the 
hunt. All of the little sisters did a 
fantastic job arranging the entire 
evening and also sported some 
original costumes. Thanks for an 
unforgettable evening. The 
clocks moved onto Saturday, and 
with them came the first annual 
Phi Mu Delta Pig Roast. The pig 
cooperated wonderfully and was 
very tasty. To all of those who 
showed up 1 would save those 
cups because they will probably 
become a collectors item in the 

Phi Mu Delta would like to 
welcome all the parents to the 
wonderful campus of Susquehan- 
na. I'm sure everyone will have a 
great weekend in our happy con- 
fines. Let's show our parents 
what they are paying $10,000 
for. But then again, maybe we 
shouldn't do that. I'm sure that 
the Phi Mu Delta parents will en- 
joy what we have in store for 

As far as the AOW award goes 
for this week, Johnny Rambo 
Rendina has won it once again. It 
seems Rambo enjoys prancing in 
the winners circle. Or should we 
refer to his actions as prancing? I 
myself would like to call it a 

follow up on one of Dooey Bobs 
past pleasures. There is no quote 
for this week but I'm sure that 
Jay Vernon has a couple of 
zingers up his sleeve.

when you think about it real 
hard, if if weren't for them where 
would you be? 

P.S.S. There is a possibility that a 
rare animal from N.J. will be 
visiting the SU campus this 
weekend. All should be on the 
lookout for a fat little boy by the 
name of D. Tarleton. If you spot 
this creature, please call the 
authorities at once since he may 
be harmful to your health. 

Harriers Suffer 
First Loss 

Last weekend the Susquehan- 
na cross country team had to face 
their first loss in over a year. SU 
lost to Franklin and Marshall. 
The team does not want to make 
any excuses because they were 
simply outrun by the very 
talented F&M team. The Har- 
riers are looking forward to see- 
ing F&M again, during the 

On the brighter side of this past 
weekend, the cross country team 
did win three races, which brings 
their record to 13-1. The wins 
came when the runners dealt

Study Abroad With ISEP 

Mr. Ream Barclay, program 
assistant of the International 
Student Exchange Program 
(ISEP), will be on campus this 
coming Monday, Nov. 4 to 
talk with students interested in 
a study abroad experience at 
any one of 75 universities all 
over the world with which 
ISEP has negotiated reciprocal 
exchange agreements. 

Through the efforts of Prof. 
Wilhelm Reuning of the 
History Department, Sus- 
quehanna joined ISEP about 
four years ago. Membership in 
ISEP now entitles Susquehanna 
to send five students overseas 
and to receive five visiting 
foreign students in return. 

Susquehanna students with a 
minimum grade point average 
of 3.0 would be able to study 
in the English-speaking world 
at any one of 5 universities in 
Australia, 7 in Canada, 6 in 
Great Britain, and one each in 
Hong Kong, Kenya, Nigeria, 
and Malta. Students proficient 
in French would have 12 in- 
stitutions to choose from in 
France, 2 in Switzerland, and 
one each in Belgium, Ivory 
Coast, Togo, and Tunisia. 
Spanish-speaking universities 
which accept ISEP exchange 
students are located in Colom- 
bia (4), Costa Rica (1), 
Dominican Republic (1), Mex- 
ico (1), and Spain itself (1). 
Other opportunities for study, 
using the national language, 
are located in Brazil, Fiji, 
Finland, Germany (7), Italy (7), . 
Korea, Malta, Netherlands, and 

The period of study is nor- 
mally for one year. The only 
additional expense for Sus- 
quehanna students beyond nor- 
mal room, board, and tuition 
at SU would be airfare to the 
host country. Students on 
financial aid would be able to 
keep that aid (except for work- 
study awards) and apply it to 
their study abroad under ISEP. 

If you are interested in 
meeting and speaking with Mr. 
Barclay on Monday about the 
possibility of studying abroad 
on an ISEP program, please 
contact Dr. Bradford over the 
weekend at his home 
(374-4345) so that an appoint- 
ment can be set up. ISEP 

publishes a tabloid sized 
newspaper which briefly 
describes each foreign universi- 
ty and the type of study op- 
portunities that exist at each. 
Dr. Bradford has copies of this 
publication in his office (114 
Bogar Hall).

Guilty of Entertainment 

SGA Minutes

"Watch out for that low flying 

If you missed the high flying 
comedy of Dave Rudolf last 
Monday in the Crusader Castle, 
you missed quite a show. 
Rudolfs performance to which 
he pleads "guilty of entertain- 
ment" was given to a standing 
room only crowd. 

This unique performer played 
a wide variety of music from the 
serious "Bye Bye Miss American 
Pie" to his own comical inter- 
pretation of the Kings' "Lola" 
which he renamed in honor of 
the Star Wars legend "Yoda." 
Rudolf also accepted requests

jokes and subtleties with au- 
dience participation was truely 

Dave is an accomplished per- 
former who is nationally known 
for his quick wit and extensive 
repertoire of songs. He has cut six 
albums, among the more famous 
(or maybe infamous) are "The 
Explorer Train," "Danger Zone" 
and "Semi Live." Dave is the 
second in a series of entertainers 
which are sponsored by the Stu- 
dent Activities Committee. 

Last Wednesday the SGA held 
its semi-weekly meeting in the 
Model Classroom in Seibert. At 
that meeting, Frank Richards 
spoke about the current status of 
the installation of the new 
telephone system. The Crusader 
approached Richards a week 
prior to the SGA meeting to 
verify rumors of possible delays, 
but these attempts were rebuffed. 
At the meeting, Richards offered 
a wealth of information. 

The system being installed is 
the AT&T System 75, plus an In- 
formation Systems Network 
(ISN). The ISN will provide 
students with the ability to hook 
up to a central computer system. 
The System 75 will be installed 
for faculty and administration by 
Jan. and by the fall of next year 
for students. Students may hook 
up to the first stage of the system 
in Jan., but Richards does not ad- 
vise it because not all features 
will be available. The system will 
cost $750,000 and will take 10 
years to pay off. 

This system will provide 
30-50% savings on long-distance 
calls by using a computer to put 
the student on the cheapest line 
available (for instance, MCI in- 
stead of AT&T). In addition to 
long-distance savings, students 
will save on monthly charges. 
The school's system will cost $24 
per room per semester as opposed 

to $100 on a local system. There 
will be no installation charge, an 
additional savings of $60. 

Richards advises that students 
not purchase phones until later. 
A list will be published later iden- 
tifying all system-compatible 
phones. An AT&T phone will 
cost about $46.50. Pay phones 
and hall phones will remain in the 
dorms for students not wishing to 
subscribe to the new system. 

Other business at the meeting 
include the Emergency Student 
Loan (ESL). In fact, the ESL does 
not exist because when it was ap- 
proved, only 28 of 45 senators 
were present; short of the two- 
thirds required to vote. No 
discussion was undertaken at 
Wednesday's meeting because 
less than two-thirds were present; 
unofficially 27 out of 48. Presi- 
dent Faust expressed dismay at 
the sparse attendance and is 
taking steps to correct the 
problem. Additionally, the 
budgets of all clubs and organiza- 
tions were cut by 3.7%, due to a 
parallel drop in enrollment. 

Finally, Larry Linville has 
been confirmed as a guest speaker 
and is tentatively scheduled for 
Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. in Weber 
Chapel Auditorium. 

SGA meets every other Mon- 
day night at 7 p.m. in Seibert's 
Model Classroom. The meetings 
are open to the public.

Americans and has called 
American witnesses to support its 
case. This development is the 
more interesting because of the 
issues involved and because one 
of the Americans representing 
Nicaragua is Abram Chayes, a 
Harvard law professor who 
served as top legal advisor to the 
State Department during the 
Kennedy administration, and one 
of the American witnesses, David 
MacMichael, held a top-secret 
clearance as a contract employee 
of the CIA as recently as 1983. 
The other American witness is 
Michael J. Glennpn, a professor 
of law at the University of Cin- 

The United States is refusing to 
participate in the proceedings on 
grounds that the issue before the 
court is not a narrow or technical 
legal question but U.S. policy 
toward Central America and 
more specifically toward 
Nicaragua. Such political ques- 
tions are not deemed justiciable 
by United States courts and have 
heretofore not been seen as 

falling within the jurisdiction of 
the World Court. The issue, U.S. 
attorneys insisted, "is an in- 
herently political problem that is 
not appropriate for judicial 
resolution." This gives the un- 
precedented role of the American 
lawyers and witnesses on the 
Nicaraguan team an additional 
political dimension. 

Real naivete is required to 
believe that the International 
Court is today a nonpolitical 
body. Its judges loosely "repre- 
sent" the world's various political 
and regional groups. They are 
nominated by the U.N. Security 
Council and are elected by one of 
the world's most political bodies, 
the General Assembly of the 
United Nations. Fewer than one- 
third of the nations of the world 
accept the court's jurisdiction. 
Almost all of that one-third have 
filed reservations limiting 
jurisdiction. On nontechnical 
questions, the court's views 
broadly reflect the politics of the 
General Assembly.

leagues do not believe that the

Well, another personnal

. Love, you know who 

World Court can be counted on 
to function nonpolitically, what 
then are they doing? 

1 believe that they along with 
the Nicaraguan government are 
seeking to change U.S. policy and 
that they regard their appearance 
before the court as a legitimate 
act to that end. Chayes said as 
much when he noted that U.S. 
policy toward the Sandinistas is 
"under continuous discussion" 
and that an "authoritative state- 
ment" by the court could affect 
the debate (The Washington 
Post, Sept. 8, 1985). What should 
the rest of us think of this form of 
political action? 

We regard it as legitimate for 
Americans to represent a foreign 
government's interests in 
Washington, provided that they 
register as agents and otherwise 
obey our laws. But the 
Washington lobbyist for a foreign 
government seeks to influence 
American policy directly as it is 
being made, while counsel and 
witnesses for Nicaragua 
cooperate with a foreign govern- 
ment to undermine the 
legitimacy of existing U.S. 
government policies. They do this 
in the name of "higher" loyalties 
that presumably override a 
citizen's obligation to support 
decisions made through normal 
democratic processes. Glennon 
invokes these "higher" values 
when he claims to act in the 
"highest tradition of the 
American people." 
Does such a tradition exist? 
We may be in the process of 
forging one. Traditionally, 
citizens of a democracy have a 
right to participate in making 
policy and an obligation to accept 
the resulting decision. Acceptable 
political behavior in a democracy 
has not featured collaboration 
with foreign powers in the policy 
process. However, the boundaries 
of acceptable political action and 
of dissent were stretched during 
the Vietnam war by those who 
marched under the Viet Cong 
flag and worked on North Viet- 
nam's behalf. Boundaries are be- 
ing stretched again in the Hague. 
And elsewhere. 

More and more actual and 
potential adversaries are invited 
into our political process— Hez- 

Friday, November 1, 

bollah hijackers, Sandinista 
ministers, Soviet spokesmen 
whomever. We have put our foot 
firmly down on a slippery slope 
where distinctions between one's 
country and its adversaries, 
citizen and alien, loyalty and 
disloyalty fade and disappear. 
And any side is made to seem 
roughly equivalent to any other. 
It is all relative.

Crusaders Roll, Notch First Victory 

It took seven games, but Sus- 
quehanna finally got its act 
together and manhandled 
Lebanon Valley last Saturday, 
45-14. Although notching career 
victory number one, Coach 
William "Rocky" Rees feels the 
Crusaders have not yet played 
their best game. "We can play 
better football," noted the rookie 
Crusader mentor, unhappy with 

SU's performance despite the 
win. "We made too many 
mistakes but still managed to stay 
in control of the game." Among 
the mistakes Rees was referring 
to were four turnovers on two 
fumbles and two interceptions. 
The Crusaders committed two of 
the miscues in the game's first 
three minutes.

Chaplain's Corner 

On a chilly October night with only five matches left in 
my soiled book of matches, they dispatched me to the 
graveyard close by the campus border. The fraternity I had 
planned to join set me up as part of their hazing — I am 
to go alone on that black night and not to return from the 
graveyard until 1 had written down the specific date of the 
birth and death of "Lizzie, daughter of Reverend and Mrs. 
Yutze." From stone to stone I went. Fortune saved me 
-the last flicking flame of the last match spelled success for 
my mission. That was over 50 years ago when I was an 
SU student. Now a half-century later, I'm still doing a bit 
of thinking about graveyards. Small wonder this Sunday's 
sermon bears the title "By The Graveyard." I dare you to 
become interested in what will be said. Do come — this 
Sunday at eleven in Weber Chapel Auditorium. In by 
eleven - out by twelve!

wife from discovering the other.

"Nonetheless, there were many 
positive signs from Saturday's 
contest," reminded Rees. "We, of 
course, won our first game of the 
season and we scored in every 
facet of the attack." 

Indeed, the Crusader defense 
opened the scoring on a 75-yard 
interception return for a 
touchdown by sophomore cor- 
nerback Clayton Smith of 
Zionsville, Pa. Later, the special 
teams joined in via a 93-yard 
kickoff return by freshman 
halfback Joe Witt of Shamokin, 
Pa. The Orange and Maroon of- 
fense scored four touchdowns on 
passes from senior quarterback 
Ken Hughes of Philadelphia, Pa., 
to senior tight end Mike Leitzel 
of Klingerstown, Pa., and to 
Witt; and on runs by halfbacks 
John Lotti, a sophomore from 
Old Bridge, N.J., and Kevin 
Weber, a junior from Dumont, 

The SU rushing attack had its 
most productive outing of the 
season with a 229-yard effort. 
Witt gained 96 yards on just six 
carries, the most yards gained by 
a Crusader runner in a game this 
year. Lotti pitched in with 82 
yards on eight tries. 

Defensively, Smith was a 
standout in his first varsity defen- 
sive start. Just two plays after his 
long interception return, he 
recovered a fumble that led to a 
35-yard field goal by junior Ran- 
dy Pozsar of New City, N.Y., 
who was also perfect on six extra- 
point attempts. Smith rounded 
out his afternoon's efforts with 
five tackles and a pass breakup. 

The Crusaders will attempt to 
win its second consecutive game 
when the Upsala College Vikings 
visit Amos Alonzo Stagg Field 
Saturday in the Crusaders' an- 
nual Parents Day game. 

Upsala enters Saturday's game 
with a 3-5 record; 24 in the 
MAC. The Vikings upset con- 
ference foe Widener University 
9-7 last week at home. 
Placekicker John Mattos, a 
sophomore from Edison, N.J., 
booted three field goals, including 
a game-winning 27-yarder with 
1:57 to play, to lead Head Coach 
Vince Capraro's team to victory. 

"From what we have seen of 
Upsala on film and on paper, we 
should be well -matched op- 
ponents," noted Rees, whose 
team will be bolstered by a large 
Parents Day crowd urging the 
Crusaders onto their second 
straight win. 

Susquehanna won the 1984 
contest between the two schools 
35-20 on the Vikings' home field. 
The overall series is currently tied 
15-15 with the Crusaders riding a 
five-game winning streak. Satur- 
day's kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. 

'Two Out of Three Ain 't Bad 


Field Hockey Wrap-Up 

The Lady Crusaders finished 
off a successful season in their 
final game against College 
Misericordia. It was a perfect day 
for a game; the weather forecast 
said rain— and it did. The team 
arrived at Misery prepared to 
play. As the game progressed, the 
field became muddier and Tater's 
smile grew. Megan Moyer started 
SU off with a nice goal in the first 
half. Jean Flaherty then stole the 
show as she scored the following 
three goals. The Crusaders 

slipped and slid throughout the 
game, but managed to keep their 
opponents scoreless. The final 

score: SU 4, Misery 0. 

This weekend a number of the 
players will be traveling to a tour- 
nament at Lock Haven in hopes 
of being selected for the National 
Tournament held in Virginia. 
Lots of Luck to you! 

Finally, Best of Luck to the 
seniors, Michelle Bardman and 
Jean Flaherty. Thanks for 
leading us to an 8-4 season. 

The Women's volleyball team, 
now with a record of 10-15, has 
won two of their pact three 
matches, defeating Dickinson 
and Wilkes, and losing to F&M. 
With the end of the season near, 
the ladies will finish their 1985 
schedule at home against 
Albright on Parents' Day, and 
Gettysburg on Nov. 5. Don't 
miss your chance to see the last 
games bf the season! 

In the match against Dickin- 
son, the team won in four games, 
led by a 91 % service return rate. 
.Seniors Alice Brown and Kris 
Hauhuth led the team in spikes, 
combining for 18 kills. Serving 
was a strong point for the 
Crusaders, with Junior Donna 
Neal, Brown and Hauhuth scor- 
ing 37 points. Kat Kissinger, 
Hauhuth and Allison Shepard led 
the defense with 11 digs; and 
Kissinger and Jill Critchley had 2 
solo blocks. 

Against F&M, a closely 
matched team, the ladies lost 
games one and three and won 
games two and four. In game 
five, tension and exhaustion took 
over, allowing F&M to capitalize 
on SU's mistakes. Final score: 
12-15, 15-7, 12-15, 15-9, 10-15. 
Both teams traded net serves, 
although SU was led by the serv- 
ing of Neal, Kissinger, and 
Brown. The ladies' offense did 
not suffer, as Brown and 
Hauhuth combined for 30 kills; 
they also led the defense with 17 

This past Saturday, in an 
eventful trip to Wilkes-Barre, the 
Crusaders defeated Wilkes, scor- 
ing a record 15 points in 11 
minutes. Games two and three 
were finished as quickly, and the 
ladies won easily, 15-2, 15-4, 

Come and show your support 
for women's volleyball on Nov. 5 
against Gettysburg. SU has never 
beaten this school, and the ladies 
are hot for victory. Be there!

Exxon VP Spoke to Students 

The conflicts between develop- 
ing a successful career and a 
fulfilled personal life was 
addressed by Brice A. Sachs, ex- 
ecutive vice president of Exxon 
International Company (E1C), 
the 1985-86 Sigmund Weis 
Memorial Lecturer at Susquehan- 
na University. 

As a senior executive of Ex- 
xon, he is responsible for the 
natural gas, coal, and synthetic 
fuels business through Europe 
and Africa and for all of Exxon's 
business in the Netherlands, Lux- 
embourg, and Belgium. 

After more than 30 years of 
successfully climbing the cor- 
porate ladder at Exxon, Mr. 
Sachs still lists the primary 
priorities in his life as his family, 
his job, and keeping up with cur- 
rent events— in that order. His 
major objective, he reported, is to 
better understand and con- 
structively contribute to the lives 
of other people. Prior to his 
speech, Sachs was awarded the 
honorary degree of doctor of law. 

The title of his Monday 
evening address was "Finding the 
Optimal Balance between 
Business Career and Personal 
Priorities." The lecture addressed 
the conflicts that arise between 
corporate responsibilities and 
familial duty and how Mr. Sachs 
balances them to achieve per- 
sonal happiness. 

Paraphrasing some key points 
of Sachs' speech, he stated that 
while visits are important to ex- 
plain the essential issue of energy, 
this time he would discuss the 
balance of family and job duties. 

Sachs figured that he has spent 
50% of his waking time on the 
job plus 15% on the job at home 
for a total of 65%. Did this make 
his job the main priority in his 
life? Yes and no. 

Yes, timewise it is the priority, 
but that is only to provide a 
sound financial base. He felt that 
it was OK to be that way, 
because he gained first hand 
knowledge of the world. His 
Navy experience gave him 
managerial and supervisory task 
familiarity. He became tired of 
simply analyzing decisions and 
moved into decision making, 
giving him access to many re- 
warding experiences. Perhaps the 
most rewarding was gained in the 
christening of a ship. Three na- 
tions, the U.S., Germany, and 
Japan had worked together to 
make an awesome vessle. Just 40 
years earlier, these same nations 
were trying to destroy one 

The job is not the true priority, 
however. The family is the most 
important aspect of life. The key 
is to sacrifice personal wants 
while working for the good of the 
family. He said communication is 
essential and golf is a good way to 
get to know your sons. Another 
factor involved is the consistency 
in homelife. Sachs managed to 
keep his family in new Jersey 
while the kids were growing up. 
He knows a friend that virtually 
lost two of his four children 
through constant moving. 

Finally, Sachs noted that his 
wife, Dorothy, is the key to his 
success. She took care of the six 

children since they were young 
and kept the home base running 
while he was travelling. 

As vice president of Exxon In- 
ternational Company, Mr. Sachs 
now makes his home in London, 
England. A native of Jersey City, 
N.J., where his mother still lives, 
he earned a bachelor's degree in 
mechanical engineering at 
Stevens Institute, Hoboken, N.J., 
in 195 1. Shortly after his gradua- 
tion he joined Exxon's division of 
research and engineering. 

After nine years in Engineer- 
ing Design and Operations and 
Exxon Research and Engineer- 
ing, with three and a half years 
with United States Naval 
Research during the Korean con- 
flict, he transferred to Exxon In- 
ternational. During the next 
dozen years he carried a number 
of titles and traveled extensively 
around the world for Exxon. In 
1970 he was elected vice presi- 
dent of EIC with responsibilities 
for crude oil and product trading. 
By 1972 he was deputy corporate 
planning manager for Exxon 
Corporation and in 1976 re- 
turned to Exxon International as 
executive vice president. 

Mr. Sachs also holds a master's 
degree in industrial engineering 
from Stevens Institute and has 
been a visiting lecturer at the 
business schools of Harvard and 
Stanford universities, and the 
universities of Michigan and 
Chicago. At Susquehanna, he has 
served as a member of the 
Business and Society Advisory

Artist Series presents the 
Hungarian State Symphony Or- 
chestra on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 3 
p.m. in Weber Chapel Audi- 

This Orchestra received the 
highest state prize awarded in 
Hungary and won the highest 
critical acclaim as it toured exten- 
sively throughout the world. The 
orchestra has played under some 
of the most eminent conductors 
in the world. 

Adam Fischer who is a fre- 
quent conductor of almost every 
major European symphony or- 
chestra will be appearing on Sun- 
day with the Hungarian State 
Symphony. In 1973, Mr. Fischer 
won first prize in the Guido 
Cantelli International Conduc 
tors, held at La scala in Milan. He 
is now the Music director of the 

renowned Freiburg Theater in 

»West Germany. 

The Hungarian State Sym- 
phony Orchestra will be perform- 
ing "Dances of Galanta" and

"Terrorism and Millennialism' 

What helped to cause the re- 
cent hijackings? 

Why is there violence and ter- 
rorism in the Middle East? 

Learn more about the nature 
of terrorism and how it can be 
understood in the Millennial by 
planning to attend a public talk 
by Professor Joseph Dowling of 
Lehigh University. His talk, spon 
sored by the Department of 
History, is Thursday, Nov. 14 at 
7:30 p.m., in the meeting rooms 
of the Degenstein Campus 

Mr. Dowlina's topic, "Ter 

rorism and Millennialism,' 
focuses on the psychic similarities 
of movements, both in the past 
and in today's world. Millen- 
nialists share a belief in the com- 
ing of a Golden Age. His main 
contention is that underlying all 
these belief systems is a convic- 
tion on the part of the believers 
that the elimination of some cen- 
tral conspiratorial force (perhaps 
the United States in some eyes) at 
a particular time in history, will 
restore peace and harmony to the 


Refreshments will be served 
following the talk. Plan to attend.

Victorious Camelot Alzheimer's 

As I stepped into the Chapel 
Sunday night around 8:30, 1 saw 
and heard a strange thing. The 
stage was dark, the corridors 
were empty, and for the first time 
in what seemed like centuries, 
there was silence. The last perfor- 
mance of Camelot was over. 

For those of you who did not 
see Camelot this weekend, it is 
almost impossible to describe the 
experience that you missed. The 
weeks of long rehearsals, the 
frustrations of learning and re- 
learning dances, the forgotten 
lines, the costumes that were too 
short, and the countless other 
problems (and joys!), weren't visi- 
ble to the audience. Instead, there 
was a noble and lovable king, a 
beautiful queen, a magnificent 
warrior, a sly villain, and others 
too numerous to mention. As 
someone who would have given 
much to be on that stage, who 
lived through the weeks of sche- 

duling conflicts and little sleep 
with my friends in the cast, and 
who saw the final product, I 
salute the entire cast, crew and 
orchestra of Camelot. To the or- 
chestra and crew; thank you for 
serving so well without the 
benefit of the limelight. To the 
chorus and dancers; thank you 
for your hours of time and com- 
mitment. They really did pay off! 
To the leads; thank you for bring- 
ing the story to life and making it 
live in my mind and in the minds 
of everyone in the audience. 
Finally, a special thank-you to 
Todd. There were tears in my 
eyes at every performance. As I 
watched you, you made me 
believe that this is the time of 
King Arthur, and we can reach 
for the stars. You won your vic- 
tory; not only in Camelot, but in 
the hearts of those who witnessed 
your performance. 

God Bless You All 

What a Treat! 

To the Editor: 

Anyone who, for any reason, 
failed to see any of the presenta- 
tions of "Camelot," missed a 
wonderful, superior show. The 
singing, acting, the dancing were 
all of professional quality from 
beginning to end. The costumes 
and the sets were wonderful and 
represented hours of work. 

The talented orchestra added a 
lot to the entire performance. It 
was most refreshing to enjoy 
"real music" with the show. 

We are two of many who ap- 
preciated the energy and work 
which went into such an occa- 
sion. Much credit is well deserved 

by all who helped to give Selins- 
grove and area a treat like 
"Camelot." May we be enter- 
tained so professionally again. 

We are proud of our young 
people, the Music Department, 
and all who were connected with 
this production.

Imagine how difficult your life 
would be if your memory con- 
stantly failed you. People who 
have Alzheimer's disease prob- 
ably could not even remember 
the most recent task they did. 
Alzheimer's disease is an irrever- 
sible, progressive, chronic, 

neurological disorder affecting 
memory, behavior, language, and 
all cognitive functioning. To 
make the situation worse, there is 

no known cause, cure, or treat- 

Sigma Kappa, in conjunction 
with their Founder's Dav celebra- 
tion, is holding a Week of Giving 
from Nov. 10-16. They will be 
sponsoring various events con- 
cerning Alzheimer's Disease. 

At 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, they 
will be throwing a birthday party 
at Doctor's Convalescent Home, 
now known as Penn Lutheran 

Village. The film "Do You 
Remember Love" will be shown 
in the Crusader Castle on Wed. at 

7 p.m. This made-for-TV movie is 
about a well-known professor 
who comes down with 

A panel discussion led by the 
spokesperson from the Lewisburg 
Alzheimer's Support Group on 
Alzheimer's will be held Thurs- 
day in Seibert Auditorium at 7 
p.m. This is a chance for the 
public to ask any questions they 
may have about the disease. 

Finally, on Friday, a faculty and 
staff cocktail party is being held 
at the Sigma Kappa house at 4:30 
p.m. During this time, Sigma 

Kappa will be donating books on 
Alzheimer's disease to the Roger 
M. Blough Learning Center and 
Selinsgrove Library. Sigma Kap- 
pa is also planning a larger fund 
raiser for the spring to raise 
money for Alzheimer's research. 

Remember that this month is 
National Alzheimer's month and 
look for Sigma Kappa's display in 
the Campus Center. 

Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The

Our Corner 

For lack of anything better to 
write about, how about TV. The 
only reason I am picking this is 
because I'm staring at it while try- 
ing to think of a topic. Remember 
when there were all those great 
sitcoms. Although I was just a 
duo. I still remember classics like 

"All in the Family," "Mary Tyler 
Moore," "The Bob Newhart 
Show," and the like. Humor was 
the key and what's more, they 
really were funny. 

Today's TV is different. Sit- 
coms are mostly of a slapstick 

nature. The notion of the "idiot 
box" is often a reality — especial- 
ly with shows like "Laverne & 
Shirley," "Three's Company" (we 
all know why it got viewers, right 

guys), and now "227." Maria 
Gibbs is as obnoxious as they 
come. These shows require no 
thought and no sense of humor; 
no gray matter whatsoever. 

Even worse is the trend to the 
shoot em up shows. "Riptide," 
what I watched while writing 
this, the "A-Team," and a host of 
others. The effects of these shows 

on children are still uncertain, 
but some evidence indicates that 
they may increase aggression. Of 
course, not all the shows are bad. 

For the newer comedies, 
"M*A*S*H" was the all-time 
best. "WKRP in Cincinnati" was 
also pretty good. I get a kick out 
of Larry, Darryl and Darryl, but 1 
hope they don't over-expose 
them. And. as can be seen further 

down, Thursday night on NBC is 
the place to be. Some other good 
shows are "Magnum P.I.," 
although it has a terrible time- 
slot, and "St. Elsewhere." Both 

these shows have real characters; 
they seem like people. They also 
find a way to include humor, 
drama, and plot that many shows 
find impossible. 

And now comes my choice of 
the choicest. 

1. "Hill Street Blues" - For my 
money, it's the best dramatic 
series going. Reality, sensitivity, 
humor, and a plotline. It requires 
undivided attention to follow, but 
it is well worth the effort. 

2. "The Cosby Show" - No 
comment required. 

3. "Miami Vice" - Yes, it is a 
shoot-up show, but its flash, 
splash, and style make it irresisti- 

4. "Late Night with David Let- 
terman" - It doesn't fit the mold 
of the rest, but it is the best 
source of stupid comedy available 
and my summertime favorite. If I 
could watch it regularly now, it 
would be my number 1. 

5. "Cheers" - Number 2 sitcom 
because of "Cosby." Sam Malone 
is a chauvanistic jewel. 

Honorable Mention: "Family 
Ties," "Night Court," 

Dishonorable Mention: 
"Misfits of Science," any night- 
time soap, "Punky Brewster." 

So ends my very opinionated 
appraisal of the quality of the 
tube. You know, people get paid 
thousands of bucks to do this 
stuff, and I'm not getting a dime. 
Maybe that means my two cents 
is only worth that. Anyway, it 
doesn't seem too tough. The only 
bad part is, they have to watch all 
this stuff. Even "227." I don't 
think I could stomach it. Have a 

good one.

Editor's note: 

We at The Crusader often 
receive many scholarship and 
summer job offers to pass on 
to the students of SU. Unfor- 
tunately, we often don't have 
the space to print them. The 
following are two such offers. 
If anyone is interested in more 
information about these or 
other offers, please stop by 
The Crusader office or con- 
tact us through campus mail. 


Students who need to supple- 
ment their state and federal 
financial aid packages for the 
1985-86 school year were urged 
today to apply for private founda- 
tion and corporate funding. Ac- 
cording to Steve Danz, Director 
of The Scholarship Bank, there 
are numerous private aid sources 
available this year. Funds for 
higher education are available 
from private foundations, major 
corporations, trade, union and 
civic groups. With over 500 
million in aid, the following are 
just a sample of programs 

Teaching: Offering up to 
$3,500 per year, the Danforth 
Foundation gives awards to 
students interested in teaching as 
a profession. 3,000 annual 
awards, twenty-five percent to

ships: Awarded by a major life in- 
surance company to students in 
business, law, computer program- 
ming, accounting and related 
fields. Summer internship re- 
quired with all expenses paid. 

Anthropology, biology, con- 
seration and marine science: 
Field Research Project grants up 
to $600 per year.

and education. 

White House Fellowships:

level fellowships to work as an in- 
tern at The White House. 14-20 
yearly openings. 

According to the director, 
many private aid sources do not 
require a showing of financial 
need but are dependent on the 
student demonstrating a jpareer 
interest in a certain field, or a 
willingness to intern or enter a 
competition. Low and no-interest 
loans are also available. The 
Scholarship Bank is a non-profit 
nation-wide organization. 
Students who would like to use 
the service should send a business 
size, stamped, self addressed 
envelope to 4626 N. Grand, 
Covina,CA. 91724.

The Counseling Center is cur- 
rently assessing student interest 
in forming Support Groups. A 
Support Group consists of 5-10 
students who would meet 
(typically) one evening per week 
with a staff person as facilitator. 
The Group members have a focal 
common life-stress, and the 
primary purpose of the Group is 
to provide a context in which 
members can help each other 
learn to deal with that stress. 
Through other members, in- 
dividuals come to see their situa- 
tion in a larger perspective, can 
discover how others have 
learned to cope with similar 
issues or problems, and are pro- 
vided with a safe, social milieu in 
which open talk is encouraged. 

Some successful Groups have 
been formed around issues such 
as Being at College while Family 
Members are 111; Parent 
Divorce/Separation; Parent 
Death; Family Alcoholism. Other 
possibilities include Gay Support; 
Eating Disorders (including diet 
groups or groups whose members 
are overly concerned with diet!); 
Stop-smoking groups. 

If you have an interest in par- 
ticipating in Groups focusing on 
any of the above topics, or have 
other topics to suggest, please 
drop by the Counseling Center 
office. The secretary, Ms. Sears, 
has as interest inventory, de- 
signed to collect this information. 
If enough people show interest in 
a particular topic, they will be 
contacted in the coming weeks. 
All responses will be strictly con-

We here at Susquehanna are 
interested in increasing the size 
and quality of our Greek system, 
and are looking to you for your

Jeff Olson 

IFC President 


Since we're fed up with com- 
puters, this week will be quite 
simple. We'd like to congratulate 
the new officers of the Executive 
Committee and Ritual team. 
AJso, we'd like to remind the 
Cook School of its new students- 
Dave S. and our Alumnus Marco 
B. who travelled the world in 
about an hour. Tim has reminded 
me to thank Dana and Gretchen 
from Sigma for dancing on our 
bar so many weeks ago!!!! 

How do you like that Snack 
Bar, Mike? Steve, you lousy bum! 
Craig did a wonderful Doug 
Freer imitation on Halloween 

night — I feel he should be given 
the best costume award! That 
night did go very well, as did the 
previous Horror night. We'd like 
to thank our parents and the 
parents of our little sisters and 
rushees who came up to the 
house on Saturday. Just an in- 
teresting note, the parents leave 
more of a mess than the college 

Skip had an enjoyable 
weekend, if you have any ques- 
tions for the ancient mariner, 
come on up to 593. Armand is 
still grounded for about a year 
since he did not come home till 
three in the morning Saturday! 
Both Tim's have been good, un- 
fortunately! But, remember 
Dave's spectacular Swan dive off 
his top bunk! I think he had a 
double twist in there also! He was 
given a gold medal! 

Remember our Keg Roll is 
coming up tomorrow. You can 
still give pledges for the worth- 
while cause to prevent Leukemia. 
We've got over 200 dollars, let's 
not stop here!! 

Seriously folks, we would like 
to congratulate Jeff and Gary 
who iavaliered their girlfriends, 
Holly and Wendy respectively. A 
group wedding will be held next 

We're happy to announce that 
Jim did nothing this week. We'd 
also like to thank MA Newman 
for honoring us with her presence 
this weekend, and thanks go out 
to Mr. and Mrs. Scooter who 
have been a great help to this 
Chapter's Rush. A sincere 

welcome must also go out to our 
President who has returned from 
exile. If anyone's interested, the 
Scarlet Letter is posted on his 

In closing, the Brothers would 
like to thank Sigma Kappa for in- 
viting us up to their house for 
movies on Friday night for our 
Birthday celebration: 84 years of 
excellence and still improving!!! 

As for the Young Ones, the 
guys have run out of money and 
were lucky that a moving van 
crashed into their house. Vivian 
could use some carbon, and Neil 
needs a new haircut. 
That's about it from the slum, 
The Young Ones 


OK. Here we are approaching 
Thanksgiving and coming close 
to the seemingly endless term. 
We're sure that all were happy as 
larks to see their parents last 
weekend. We had quite a good 
time with ours throughout the 
entire weekend. Some of our little 
sisters' parents had a great time at 
the house, and seemed to find 
"the chair" quite comfortable. A 
big hand goes out to Curtis for ar- 
ranging the whole shabang in 
Lewisburg. It was definitely a 
ballsy job. Digby- nice distrac- 
tion! On Saturday evening things 
will be looking quite drab and 
colorless at the house, so when 
you come up leave, your colored 
clothes at home. Yes, that's right, 
we're having a black & white par- 
ty that should be exciting if not

We all hope you'll find it in 
your heart to make a donation to 
the Ronald McDonald House in 
Danville. Our Tag Day will be all 
over town on Saturday; at stores 
and at the mall to help raise funds 
for this cause. Hope to see you 
out there. 

We still have some Phi Mu 
Delta pig roast cups left over. 
Anyone interested should pur- 
chase it at the house for the mere 
price of $2. A very low price for a 
ballsy cup. As far as the AOW 
award goes, it was an easy deci- 
sion for the brotherhood this 
week. Timmo got it for a wonder- 
ful occurence throughout the en- 
tire weekend. It will be difficult to 
beat his efforts. The quote of the 
week comes to us from one of our 
large Lock Haven brothers that 
visited this weekend. The 
Michelin Man's quote can be 
found in the fun room. 

On Monday afternoon a few of 
the brothers took an adventurous 
ride to New York City with the 
Marketing Club. It was definitely 
the right way to end the 
weekend. The bus ride home 
made us proud to be Americans. 

After Dallas lost on Monday 
night the Mudhouse was jumping 
because that put the Giants in 
first place. They are now 6-3 and 
are on their way to the bowl. 
Shame's Pats beat Harry's 
Dolphins by 3 points so Shamintz 
should be smiling for a week. 
—Don't forget our Tag Day on 
Saturday for the Ronald 
McDonald House.— 

Thank you and have an 

enjoyable weekend, 

Dooey & Pumpkin 

P.S. Is a dream a lie if it don't 

come true? 


Well, Parent's Weekend has 
come and gone, and now for- 
tunately most of us can get on 
with our lives again. Seriously, 
we had a great showing of 
parents at the cocktail party. The 
food was great, right Jack. 
Thanks to all who made it hap-

Hi everyone. I hope everyone's 
Parents Weekend was as good as 
mine. Zeta had a special "coffee" 
for our parents, which was fun. 

Please wish Bonnie Herb, Deb- 
bie Kopf, and Dottie Hart a Hap 
py Birthday. 

This past week Allison, a field 
consultant, came to visit us and 
see how we are doing. Looks like 
initiation is in the near horizon 
thanks to her and others. 

This is just a reminder, girls, 
that your pal is waiting for her 
gray and koala so get busy and 
send that gift! 

Well, that's all the news for 
this week. 

In Zeta Love, 


The brothers would like to 
thank the parents for a great 
weekend. The cocktail party was 
a success and we got a chance to 
show off our new house. 
Although some people do not 
think so, we take a great pride in 
our house and are happy with the 
progress we have made.

Thanks to all the sisters who 
brought their moms down to the 

Attention: We have only one 
week until the formal. So, for 
those of you who do not have a

get to it girls! 

Last week KD was very for 
tunate to have, as a guest 
speaker, a nutritionist who told 
us what to eat and what not to 
eat. Unfortunately, everything 
that we love is too fattening, 
bummer! But, thanks Patti C. for

This coming week is an impor- 
tant and special one for the 
Sisters of Sigma Kappa. It is our 
Founder's Week, and what we 
have designated our sorority's 
Week of Giving. Check the 
"Notes" section of this paper for 
more information. It involves our 
continued support of Alzheimer's 
Disease. Don't miss the movie 
"Do You Remember Love," to be 
shown in the Crusader Castle at 7 

on Wednesday. We thank them, 
and all who participate and sup- 
port our Week of Giving. If you 
can't make the movie, Thursday 
night at 7 in Seibert Aud. there is 
an information session to be held, 
and on Friday at 4:30 we will be 
holding a Faculty Reception at 
our House, 300 U.A. All pro- 
fessors and administrators are 
welcome. At the reception, Sigma 
Kappa will be formally donating 
2 books on Alzheimer's Disease 
to the Blough Learning Center 
and the Selinsgrove Public 

The Sigma spotlight this week 
casts its light upon two seniors 
who will finally be able to join 
the ranks of us "of age" people as 
they will be celebrating their 
21st's this coming week: 
Maryellen "Marv" Morgan on 
Nov. 12 and Deb "Pup" Tarr on 
the 13th. 

Marv is an accounting major, 
is currently our Vice Pres. of 
Membership and lives down at 
the House. Deb is the Pan- 
Hellenic President and resides her 
bones down at the puproom at 
312. She tries to major in 
marketing. One thing must be 
noted. These two are two of the 
most organized people in our 
sorority and perform in their of- 
fices very well. 

...But even the best of us have 
Our little die-hard habits. 
Maryellen loves to fall down for 
absolutely no reason (at least 
none we can figure out). You'll 
also notice that when Marv 
laughs she has no eyes or upper 
lip. And Maryellen, don't you 
hate it when you find pins in your 
clothes after you put them on? 
You will be able to tell how good 
of a time Marv has on her birth- 
day by how fast she sprints. 

Pup has a few things she can't 
get over either. How 'about those 
hairy arms and feet?! Deb cannot 
stand people who stick their 
fingers in other people's ears. 
And next time you see Deb, ask 
her why Snoopy's butt is burned 
brown. Deb is a good volleyball 
player who always deserved a lot 
more time and credit than she got 
while playing for the team at SU. 
And though we can't throw the 
fantastic parties we did 
sophomore year, I hope we get to 
celebrate together. 

The semi -formal is tomorrow 
night! Details of this fun-filled 
event to follow next week. Put on 
your fine attire, a great big smile, 
and don't forget your dancin' 
shoes... and until your eyes meet 
Sigma print again RBG 


How tout this rain! You've 
got to love being drenched, the 
blistering winds, mud, and these 
nice warm days- bet you never 
guessed SU had all this to offer. 
We'd like to thank our 
hellascious little sisters for setting 
up the decorations for the Hallo- 
ween party, for the presents, and 
for the very key Theta Chi pump- 
kin. As for the Halloween party... 
it went quite well, the sloppy rate 
was well above 90%. Hey Yogi 
Bear! Outrageous job organizing 
this weekend! Our parents en- 
joyed themselves thoroughly. 
This year's amazing dance couple 
award goes to Mr. and Mrs. Guz- 
zo, who ate up the dance floor, 
and the dancin' fool Saturday 
Night Fever John Travolta look- 
alike award goes to brother Mr. 
Ed Salter (dance lessons and 
music now available on VCR 
video cassette tapes). We'd also 
like to thank Ralph and Rose 
Havice (our beloved cooks) and 
their crew for the outstanding 
dinner and dessert; the rental 
units were quite impressed! Last 
Monday night's Rush function 
went well, we were glad to see a 
good turnout, and if anyone is in- 
terested in Theta, you're welcome 
to come up; you'll be informed as 
to more such functions (too bad 
Dallas, lets go Giants!) While on 
the subject of sports, we're sorry 
to say that Theta's football team 
was knocked out of contention 
by New Mens. It was a gallent ef- 
fort, but we ended up wet, dirty 
and defeated, so let's go Danglers! 
Until next time- 
Hoopla and chit

Dr's. Grosse, Potter, and 
Tyler were stranded on an 
Island. They had a case of 
cans of food. Dr. Grosse said, 
"I have calculated the amount 
of energy required to open the 
can, and if I drop the can from 
this tree, the can will break 
open on the rock below." Dr. 
Potter said, "No, I have a bet- 
ter idea, I know the boiling 
point of the contents of the 
can. If I heat the can, the boil- 
ing contents will make the can 
explode." Jumping up with a 
big grin on his face, Dr. Tyler 
exclaimed, "I've figured it out! 
Now, if we assume we have a 
can opener...."

Computer in our Society's Future 


Since the development of the 
integrated circuit, the ability for 
the individual to access informa- 
tion has increased very rapidly. 

Now a person can access infor- 
mation that was previously only 
available through large computer 
centers. This can be done for the 

small investment of only 
$200.00, which would buy a com- 
puter, modem, and terminal 
emulator program. This revolu- 
tion was so rapid that only now 
are people beginning to consider 
some of the issues involved with 
this expansion. 

Two major categories of ques- 
tions occur. The first is, "Who 
will have what access?" The sec- 
ond is, "Who will control this ac- 
cess?" As systems grow the 
amount of knowledge available 

grows also. And those people 
who have access to this informa- 
tion have a large advantage over 
those who do not have such ac- 
cess. This information can make 

or break any new business and 
thus the second question becomes 
apparent. If systems keep grow- 
ing at the present rate the com- 
puter may soon replace the 
telephone and then the major 
problem will become control of 
the agency controlling the access 
to information. Should this 
organization become corrupt it 
could easily bring the society as a 
whole to its knees. 

There will be one major 
change in social demands: com- 
puter literacy. Today a person 
who can not read is at a severe 
disadvantage. Take, for example, 
if you couldn't read directions on 
how to prepare food, or assemble 
simple home appliances, you 
would be lost in today's society. 
Similarly people in the near 
future will be lost without a cer- 
tain amount of computer literacy. 

As the computers become 
cheaper and cheaper they will 
find their way into all the schools, 
and most (if not all) students will 
have extensive knowledge of 
computers. This will, of course, 
affect some of our abilities as 
human beings. One possibility is 
the lessening of the mathematical 
abilities. This would be similar to 
the loss of the ability to 
remember masses of information 
when humans began to write 
things down. 

The computer revolution is, as 
its name suggests, a revolution. 
We are revolting against the 
previous way of doing things and 
developing new ways. This new 
system has both pros and cons. It 
is our responsibility as human be- 
ings to bring out ideas about the 
changes to the right people so we 
don't get in trouble as a race.

The Creation of Computers 

Moses simulated by: Stephen 


God played by: Bill Walter 

In the beginning there was 
void. The void was without form 
or substance. And God said, "Let 
There Be Computers!" And there 
were computers. And He said, 
The Computers Are Good. And 
there was no light. And the first 
day passed. 

On the second day God said, 
"We Need Light To See The 
Computers!" And He made light. 
And it was good. And He divided 
the firmaments into the light and 
the darkness. And there was 
darkness. And the second day 

And on the third day God said, 
"We Need Someone To Program 
The Computers!" And He 
created mankind, male, female 
and others. And He saw that they 
were not good, for they knew not 
how to program the computers. 
And the night passed and so 
ended the third day. 

And on the fourth day God 
said, "Let There Be Universities 
To Educate Mankind To Pro- 

gram Computers!" And the 
Universities were good. And 
night passed on the fourth day. 

On the fifth day God saw that 
the computers were in a steady 
state of development and He saw 
it was not good. So God created 
research laboratories, and large 
firms to finance the research 
laboratories, such as IBM. And 
evening passed on the fifth day. 

And God said, on the sixth 
day, "We Have Computer Pro- 
grammers, But No One To Use 
The Computers!" So He divided 
mankind between the computer 
programmers and all lower forms 
who use the computers. And God 
saw that the whole world was a 
mess. And night fell and so ended 
the sixth day. 

And morning dawned on the 
seventh day. And God saw the 
state of the world and He said, "1 
Give Up!" And so He rested on 
the seventh day.

My Junior Year Abroad 

For the experience of your life, 
I would recommend a study 
abroad program. I had the oppor- 
tunity of going to Copenhagen, 
Denmark to study international 
business for nine months last 
year. The learning experience, 
both in and out of school. wa« 

i — 

very exciting and fulfilling. I lived 
with a Danish family and very 
quickly became a part of their 
lives. They were very supportive, 
loving, and especially enjoyed 
sharing their Danish cultural 
traditions, as well as learning 
American traditions from me. 

I had the opportunity to travel 
all over Europe during school 
breaks and weekends (totalling 
approximately three months.) I 
visited 17 countries such as 

France, Greece, Switzerland, 
Russia, and Hungary. This gave 
me a chance to understand in 
greater depth the various 
lifestyles throughout Europe. 
The academic program was 

very demanding, but interesting 
because of its European context. 
In addition to courses on 
European economics, marketing 
techniques and law, this interna- 
tional studies program required 
intensive study of the Danish 
language and organizations, 

governmental agencies and 
operations of both large in- 
dustrial and consumer product 
companies. This exceptional 
study and travel experience was 
very broadening and has added a 
special dimension to my life.

touchdown strike from Hughes 
to Al Bucci. The two point con- 
version was no good and with 
12:05 left in the game, Sus- 
quehanna led 23-9. 

On the ensuing kickoff, Upsala 
struck quickly. Starting from 
their own 17 yard line, Jensen led 
the Vikings to the end zone in 10 
plays. The drive was fueled by 
the passing of Jensen and the 
receiving of Gavin Cave, Steve 
Lawson, and Michael Housman. 
The touchdown came on a 42 
yard pass from Jensen to Cave. 
The extra point was good and, 
with 7:04 left in the game, Sus- 
quehanna led 23-16. 

Upsala had two more cracks at 
tying or winning the game, but 
could not budge the Crusader 
defense. Time ran out and Sus- 
quehanna had MAC victory 
number two, with two more 
games remaining. Next week the 
Crusaders are on the road at 
Juniata in the annual Goal Post 
Trophy game. This is the 25th 
meeting between Susquehanna 
and Juniata since the Goal Post 
Trophy series began in 1953. 
After Juniata defeated the 
Crusaders in Selinsgrove in 1 952, 
some exuberant Indian fans tore 
down a goal post and took part of 
it back to Huntington. By con- 
sent of both institutions, that sec- 
tion of the wooden post has 
become a symbol of the friendly 
rivalry between the two schools. 

Susquehanna aims to maintain 
its hold of the Goal Post Trophy 
with a win over the 1985 Indians. 

The Crusaders have defeated 
Juniata three consecutive times, 
including last year's 34-20 
triumph at home. 

Juniata leads the Goal Post 
Trophy series 16-7 with the 1971 
game ending in a 10-10 tie. In the 
overall series, the Indians hold a 
25-17 advantage with three tires. 
Good luck guys. If we're not

Juniata College has re- 
quested all colleges who will 
be playing football on their 
campus make an announce- 
ment regarding their alcohol 
policies. Juniata College 
allows no alcoholic beverages 
in their public areas. Anyone 

caught with alcohol in such 
areas will be turned over to 
the local authorities. Juniata 
wants us to make this an- 

nouncement so that Sus- 
quehanna students who may 
be attending the game can 
comply with this rule and 
avoid any difficulties. 

Avoiding Rape On and Off Campus 

College should be a positive, 
rewarding experience of growth 
and maturation for all women. 
Many women look back at their 
years in college as the best years 
of their lives. This is the way your 
college experience should be. 
You have worked hard and you 
deserve it. 

Unfortunately, some college 
women are victims of society's 
most hideous of violent crimes. 
They are raped or sexually 
assaulted. For some, the scars of 
rape last a lifetime. For others, 
their college careers are 
disrupted, often with a loss of a 
semester or more of study. No 
one forgets being raped. 

Research indicates that rape is 
not restricted to colleges in large 
cities. Rape can and does happen 
at large, small, public, and private 
schools. Some institutions keep 
better records than others. But 
what difference do statistics make 
if you are the victim? 

What are the things that you 
should and should not do in order 

to reduce your chances of being a 
victim of rape or sexual assault? 

1.) Don't ever hitchhike. 

2.) Trust your instincts when 
you sense danger. 

3.) Walk briskly and look alert. 

4.) Do avoid dangerous places. 

5.) Do lock your apartment 
and dormitory doors. 

6.) Close your blinds and 
shades at night. 

7.) Be aware of your environ- 

8.) Keep one hand free when 

9.) Lock your car doors. 

10.) Think through what action 
you would take if confronted by a 

11.) Do not open doors to 

12.) Keep emergency numbers 
near the phone. 

13.) Do not walk atone at night. 

14.) Know the locations of 
public telephones on routes to 
and from class. 

15.) Know how to use non- 
conventional weapons. 

16.) Vary routes on campus. 
17.) Attend a rape prevention 
18.) Take a self-defense course. 
19.) Carry an alarm device. 

While rape situations diner 
from case to case, it is useful to 
consider what you would do in a 
variety of settings— at home, in 
your car, on the way to class. 
Finally, don't invite trouble over 
the phone. Never listen to the 
heavy breathers and obscene 
callers. Hang up! 

There is no guarantee that you 
will not be attacked. If you follow 
the 19 precautions described 
above, you will go a long way 
toward reducing your chances of 
being a victim of rape.

Orchestra Premieres 

How often does a wife conduct 
her husband? In the case of Heidi 
Jacob, guest conductor of the 
Susquehanna University- 
Community Orchestra and her 
husband, Charles Ambrovic, 
piano soloist, this will happen at 8 
p.m. Friday, Nov. 22 at Weber

duct the Orchestra as he performs 
the Piano Concerto in E minor 
by Chopin. 

The Jacob-Ambrovic team 
combines for a hectic schedule of 
performing, conducting and 
teaching. They live in 
Philadelphia in order to perform 
in the Janus Trio, and so he can 
teach at Swarthmore College.

Committee Against Night Testing 

Dear Editor, 

The Committee Against Night 
Testing (CANT) have a number 
of questions we would like 
answered. We hope that someone 
will take the time to respond to 
these questions. If there are 
others out there who agree that 
night tests are a pattern or prac- 
tice that they do not want SU to 
start, please let us know. If there 
are others who still, after con- 
sidering some of these questions, 
seriously believe night tests are a 
practice they don't oppose please 
let us know also. 

1.) Why give tests at night? 
If students complain about not 
enough time then: 

2.) Why not give tests more 

3.) Why not make the tests 
broader and less specific? 

4.) Why not give the tests dur- 
ing two consecutive regularly 
scheduled class times? 

5.) What is the purpose of 
having class on the day of the ex- 

Our Corner 

This column is inspired by the 
alcohol workshop on Saturday 
and it is by far the hardest yet to 
write. The topic is a popular one, 
but the view, I'm sure, isn't. 
Topic: drinking. View: why? For 
all you wise guys who said, 
"Because I'm thirsty," I just wish 
that was why. 

Let me set one thing straight 
before I begin. I'm not a prohibi- 
tionist, not even close. At the risk 
of a visit from the local 
authorities, 111 be the first to ad- 
mit that I drink. I enjoy tossing 
back a few while watching a ball 
game or at a party, but that is not 
what I'm talking about. 

I'm talking about what occurs 
every weekend, and often during 
the week, on this campus and 
campuses everywhere. Let me 
cite an exchange I overheard in 
the bathroom, non-verbatim, 
"Hey, you getting wasted 
tonight?" "Yeah, I'm going to 

(fraternity)." This is not social 
drinking as a part of the evening. 
The sole purpose of the mission is 
to "get wasted." 

If you ask people why, you get 
typical answers: "You need to 
relax after the work," and "I had 
a killer test. I need to unwind." 

This is a crock of . 

These are not reasons, they're ex- 
cuses. The whole idea is to 
"forget my problems." Escaping 
for a night doesn't make prob- 
lems disappear. Of course, we all 
heard this years ago. 

So why don't we listen? Most 
people claim they like getting 
drunk. I've said it myself. But 
when you lay in front of a toilet 
and thank it for being there, in- 
sisting that your having fun is 
ridiculous. Clearly, the famed 
peer pressure is a key ingredient. 
Not that friends force people to 
drink, but that to fit in people 
have to drink at college. My sister

am, especially when the material 
that is covered is new material to 
be tested on the following exam? 

6.) Are students going to do as 
well taking a test at 7:00 p.m. 
after classes and studying as they 
would be taking it in the morning 
or afternoon? 

7.) If the answer is, "It 
shouldn't have any effect," then 
are the experimental results that 
most students seem more at- 
tentive and do better on tests that 
are given in the morning, wrong? 

is a freshman at IUP (which was 
the site of many alcohol-related 
arrests about two weeks ago.) She 
is having trouble adjusting 
because she doesn't drink much 
and can't find friends who don't 
drink for their sole entertain- 
ment. This is a sad social com- 

As I've said, I'm not trying to 
preach, especially because I'm 
just as guilty, but we are here to 
learn, not party. If you're here to 
party, go somewhere cheaper. A 
1.5 blood alcohol content plus a 
1.5 GPA doesn't add up to ten 
grand a year. 

While I've avoided it thus far, I 
must give credit where credit is 
due. The Greek system can share 
some of the responsibility for the 
excessive partying. People would 
most likely still drink, but the 
Greeks make it easy, and often 
necessary. Whatever they tell 
you, they do pressure pledges and 
visitors to drink. In addition, 
their glorification of alcohol has 
to be cut weekly from their col- 
umns. I invite the Greeks to re- 

What does all this mean? To be 
honest, I'm not sure. I just don't 
understand why people find it 
necessary to get drunk three 
times a week. I don't understand 
why people have to drink to have 
fun. And I don't understand why 
people view it as a right when it's 
against the law for the majority 
of us. Hey, I believe in "old 
enough to fight, old enough to 
drink," but it is still the law. 

I'm just glad this is a small 
campus and no one has to drive 
to get home. Last Sunday's 
tragedy involving Pelle Lind- 
bergh is something to learn from: 
something so that his death was 
not so senseless. One final ques- 
tion: Why would a local Catholic 
church sponsor a BYOB party? 
Leaves me speechless. Have a 
reasonable weekend. 

Wednesday evenings at / p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in-

Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The

8.) When tests are given at 
night do they only affect the 
students taking the tests? 

9.) What happens when the 
nights which tests are given on 
happen to be the same as when 
student organizations regularly 
meet (such as Play rehearsals, 
SGA Senate meetings, Crusader 
staff meetings, the list could go 
on and on.)? 

10.) What would happen if these 
student organizations started 
holding their meetings during the 
day when classes are in session? 

1 1.) What about those involved 
in athletic programs, either games 
or daily practice? 

12.) What is it like to study in 
the afternoon for a test to be 
given that evening? 

13.) Then what is it like to take 
the test for approximately two 
hours and to have to return to 
one's room or to the library to 
study for the next day's classes? 

14.) What is going to happen 
when more than one class starts 
to schedule tests for the same 

15.) Is the reason for this dis- 
ruptive pattern of night testing 
due to the switch in the academic 
calendar? (Trimesters to 

16.) Is an education only ob- 
tained through the classroom? 

17.) Can one learn how to get 
along or work well with others 
from a textbook and/or lectures?

same topic as I'm writing now.

and Fisher. At that time it had 
been a mess for over a month, 
now, five weeks later, it still is! In 
someways it's worse, the muddy 
area has grown, and the only real 
way to avoid it is to go through 
Fisher or Steele. This project is 
taking far too long. 

In all fairness, however, it 
would appear that the end result 
of this project (if it is ever 
reached) will be an enhancement 
to our campus. 

Once again I ask; can this pro- 
ject be completed soon? Last 
time I offered Parents' Weekend 
as a goal, how about the end of 
next week this time? Or, if the 
weather is fair, maybe by the 
time this is printed. 
Sincerely yours, 
J. David Stanton, Jr.

Who doesn't have problems 
with financial aid? Here's the 
chance to ask all those questions 
you have about those com- 
plicated forms and just how you 
get financial aid these days. The 
Honors Project's "Seminar on 
Financial Aid for the College Stu- 
dent" will be held Nov. 16 at 2 
p.m. in Seibert Auditorium. Dr. 
McGrath, SU's new interim 
Director of Financial Aid, will be 
presenting various examples and 
explanations of how financial aid 
is determined, and will answer 
any questions you may have 
about student aid in general. The 
seminar will last until you get all 
your questions answered — but 
don't worry, light refreshments 
will be served! Don't pass up this 
opportunity to learn about finan- 
cial aid... you can't say this 
seminar isn't relevant! 



I hope I can handle putting 
up with you! Hope you learn 
something here! Get that 
brain in gear!

It's Greek to Us 


First of all this week, the 
Brothers would like to announce 
the success of our Keg Roll from 
our house at Bucknell. The First 
Four had a great time in pushing 
that keg up those hills and col- 
lecting all those points. Craig has 
no knees left after those houses 
rolling down 11-15. The Next 
Nine had even a better time har- 
assing the girls at the Burger 
King drive in window.'re 
supposed to have a car guys! 
Thanks must go out to the girls 
of Sigma Kappa as they cheered 
us down University Avenue. We 
are pleased to report that we have 
raised close to $400 for the fight 
against leukemia. Second, we 
would like to say thanks to our 
three alums: JD and WPY and 
FB for gracing us with their 
"Presence." Nice elevator ride 
Jimmy! Third, and most im- 
portantly, our new officers: Jeff 
Dilks: Pres. Jim "Herb" Faust: 
VP. Eric Tucker: Controller. 
Craig Smith: Secretary. Tim 
Owens: Alumni Relations Direc- 
tor. Chris Newman: Chaplain. 
Fourth, and most comical. 

"The Road Trip" 
When: Sat. 5 p.m. to Sun. 2 

Who: Dave, Mike, Eric, Tim, 

Where: The road to nowhere- 
Muhlenberg- Lehigh... the stall. 

How: Very easily 

Why: Because it was there!! To 
start off, we had dinner on the 
strip at Wendy's. Not only did 
the girl forget the lettuce. ..She 
forgot the cup-o-cheese! That was 
the first mistake! Next we ate in 
lovely Northumberland. Excuse 
me-you know the way to Oregon? 

Gotta catch a play. Squeezed 
back in car. ..drove forever. 
Stopped at the rest area to pick 
up reading material and play the 
phone game. Muhlenberg... at 
last!! Followed Billy's notes to the 
CA. The play is sold out. Let's go 
over to our house. What it's a 
Saturday and you're studying? 

Oh well, the house is fantastic, pi- 
ty it was not being used. Leave 
Eric to see play. Continue on to 
Lehigh. ..Second mistake. The 
home of 32 fraternities and "the 
hill." Even a more fantastic house 
here. We met the Brothers and 

quickly started to feel at home. In 
fact, the Cook School has a 
transfer graduate from U of 
Delaware.. .Mike M! Craig wrote 
a wonderful dissertation on the 
topic of Graffiti. What's on your 
knee, Dave? After waking up to 
the noise of overturning tables 
our valiant travellers returned to 

Muhlenberg. We picked up Eric 
and headed home. (After waiting 
for Malone.) Arbys was in- 
teresting, as was the "gas" sta 
tion. As we returned home to a 
cheering crowd, the brave few 
tried to go Chinese, but they 
evidently were out on the fields. 
DJ's here we come! 

The quote of the week: "Your 
such an infintesimal piece of 
shhhoe leather." 

The Young Ones 

P.S.- The brothers who went to 
the Sigma Kappa semi-formal 
had a great time. Thanks again, 

Also- Eric has completed all his 
courses for graduation from the 
Cook School. 


Hi everyone and welcome to 
the end of eleventh week. Ill tell 
ya\ I'm ready to go home for 
Thanksgiving already. Well, 
Turkey day is coming soon so 
don't fret. 

The Zeta Tau Alpha National 
Council meeting ended Tuesday 
at noon and they are deciding 
what our future is for initiation 
and installment. Supposedly, we 
are to be installed as a chapter on 
the weekend of Dec. 6. 1 guess we 
know by now! We would like to 
thank Lambda for offering your 
bar room for our initiation party. 
It should be a good time and we 
are very positive that we will be 
there! If not, there will be a bon- 
fire in front of Aikens instead. 
Bring all sportswear, koalas, etc. 

Also, we would like to thank 
Sig Ep for inviting us to party 
with them this Friday night. 
Hopefully, this party will take 
place and we will have a good 
time. Kathy and Jen, I hope 
you're dressed to kill at UVa. 
Have a blast and watch out for 
antelopes on the road! 

Here is some gossip for all to 
contemplate, laugh at, and 
whatever else you do with it. Gin- 
ny, why did you stay home this 
weekend? Too much fun on 
Monday night with the guys 
from 305? Just remember that to 
beat them means that you have 
to know that crackers and 
McWubbets are tangible and you 
do have classes on Tuesday. 
Phyllis, don't forget to meet 
Mabel at the laundromat tonight. 
Those prices are real expensive, 
but you saved five dollars so 
don't sweat it, and eat as much 
pizza as you can. Just sit down 
and shut up, Leslie and Anita. 
Betsy, pick up the best shampoo, 
even though it's more expensive 
you're worth it. You do get what 
you pay for! 

Before I get any stupider, 111 
sign off! 

Have a great and safe weekend, 
In Zeta Love, 


Hi-yuh! Hope everyone has en- 
joyed the past eleven weeks. 
Hope everyone had an exciting 
Veterans Day, 1 know I did. 

Last Saturday was a very 
ballsy day. We raised close to 
$500 in our Tag Day that after- 
noon. Money collected will go to 

help out the Ronald McDonald 
House in Danville. We'd like to 
thank everyone who made a 
donation, we really appreciate it. 

Don't you just love those tags. 
Later that night the Mudhouse 
was the scene for our B&W par- 
ty. The black lights made a great 
effect, at the sacrifice of our eyes. 
And believe it or not the little fat 
alumnus returned Sat. night to 
add some excitement to the 
weekend. He probably had room 
to fit his name, address and life 
story where he had just his 
nickname. It was good to see him 
even though he did give out some 
studying advise to litey. Yeah, 

Jonny Rambo completed his 
hat trick for AOW this semester. 
This time he won it for a certain 
Halloween character he got to 
know and for making incredible 
claims (which he later denied). 
John now holds the record and 
by the time he graduates hell 
have a record no one can break. 
As for the quote, Jay Vernon 
came up with another one. 
Straight from Rochester it seems 
things are attracted to Shame. 
For the actual quote, we promise 
it will be up in the bar room this 

Glad to see alot of you 
freshman guys at the house last 
Tues. This Tuesday night we'll be 
having something again, but if 
you want to come up any other 
time to just hang out, feel free. 
The doors are always open and 
there's always someone here. 

The best music, the roots of 
rock and roll came from this era, 
so this Sat. night we're having a 
60's party. Come prepared to 
hear lots of Beatles and Stones 
tunes and many others. So come 
on over, John's been working on 

this place since the sixties, so A 

couple of purchases have been 
made around here lately. Our 

new freezer comes in handy with 
all the ice needed to keep things 
cool. At least we have that to 
store things in — we were pro- 
mised a refrigerator, but well 
probably get that in early May 

—May '87 that is. Also two 
brothers who take Brothers 
seriously bought a fun new toy. 
When are you gonna get that 
thing out of the parking lot guys? 

And of course the Giants won 
again. That's four in a row to 
make the Super Bowl contenders 
7-3. Next Monday will be a hot 
night when they take their 
number 1 defense down to God's 
country to take on the Cowgirls. 

Attention: Our pledges are do- 
ing a walk-a-thon for Christian 
Council this Sunday. They'll be 
walking from here to Ted's Land- 
ing and back. They're looking for 
pledges per mile from anyone, so 
help them out if they come 
around. They'll surely be hurting 
Sunday evening. Thanks. 

Until next Veterans Day, 

Pumpkin (a.k.a. Mr. TV) 

& Dooey

One more column closer to the 
end of my reign, don't get me 
wrong, the power of the pen can 
be amusing and rewarding. 
Despite its advantages, it makes 
you go mad and on many occa- 
sions you may find yourself talk- 
ing to yourself about absolutely 
nothing of relevance. "It might 
mean something to you, but it 
ain't nothing to me." I'd like to 
sincerely apologize to a brother 
that's been like a father to me, my 
buddage, Doodage, for forgetting 
to mention his "outrageous" job 
setting up Parents Weekend; also- 
you were hell Ols. It's raining 
again, wait. ..lightning and 
thunder; impressive mother 
nature, 25 inches of rain in 2 
weeks. Last weekend... enjoyable 
and chit! This weekend... the 
same! Last Friday, Rochester was 
visited by many bro's and SU 
students to go see Jerry and the 
Dead, I understand that it was an 
experience, and that MacPac 
loves everybody! Congratulations 
to Doug Klahre and Claudia 
Kuhn who are now one step 
closer, they be pinned! Last Mon- 
day night's RUSH function had 
a great turnout (I'm sure Pappas 
was able to close early), we are 
glad to see so many are in- 
terested. Well keep in touch with 
you all and don't forget to come 
up for the rest of the functions; 
feel free to bip on up any time, 
especially the weekends. Eagles 
in OT, bah! The Giants in regula- 
tion! Singer has only 2 weeks left, 
give him hell and let's bring on 
Pinhead. Theta tied for 2nd place 
in intramural football after their 
last minute win over Lambda, 
psyched! PSU, you know them, 
the team with the easiest 
schedule, plays a real team this 
weekend; I'm afraid a green and 
yellow streak will taint their 
hopes to remain #1. And the 
world goes on... 



"The Roof, The Roof, The 
Roof was on Fire..." at our semi- 
formal last Saturday night!! I 
don't think anyone will deny the 
fact that it was a hot night! We 
could've danced all night, and 
some very memorable tunes 
played were "Change," "Vitamin 
L," "Celebration," "Girls Just 
Wanna Have Fun," and of 
course "1999." Smitty, we missed 
you in action during "Shout." I 
noticed Kim and Wayne had just 
the greatest time dancing in corn- 
ers all night. 

Eating dinner with Sue, Eddie, 
Linda and Kenny was more than 
an enlightening experience. Ken- 
ny, coffee creamers and sweet-n- 
tow? Yuck! 7.5. Liz probably had 
the most enlightening evening 
when her date did his imitation of 
a Jack-O-Lantern. And Franch— 
didn't you feel so much better 
when they turned on the air 
vents?! Carrie...."rm scared of 
that." Deb Holt how dare you 
spill your little sister's drink. Isn't 
it bad enough her man is on the 
injured list? 

It was really great to see Paula 
VanNeikirk and Jen Colson back 

to visit us! And of course it was 
nice to see Freddie back for yet 
another Sigma Kappa formal. 
PM— you both looked terrific. 

We have a few awards for the 
event as well: Cutest couple was 
Dana and Matt on the dance 
floor, the "You looked 
Mahvelous" award goes to Bren 
da Bollinger and Ray Skursky, as 
they beared no resemblence to 
bio majors that night, and Mom 
Oakes broke Kuch's record for 
asking her date to go the night 
before. Congratulations go out to 
Cherie "Bunson" Berner for suc- 
cessfully surviving a night with 
Mr. Destruction and to Giget for 
her dress. 

Sue and Al, you did a great job 
and we appreciate all your efforts 
in making our semi -formal go off 
so well. 

The Sigma spotlight is suffer- 
ing from temporary burnout due 
to all the happenings this 
weekend. A new bulb will be 
shining brightly next week 

on ?? So I leave you with this 

thought as we end our special 
Week of Giving, until your eyes 
meet Sigma print again.... 

Dictionary Definition: Share- 
to participate in, or experience in 
common.To have or take part; 
participate; join. 

....Sharing just comes naturally to 
those who really care.... 

Thanks and blessings to all who 
shared in our Week of Giving. 


Here I am sitting in the com- 
puter room in Seibert thinking 
about what to say in this week's 
column. Now I can understand 
why our usual author has such a 
hard time sometimes. But since 
the authors seem to be on a 
rotating basis lately, you're stuck 
this week with me!!!! 

It's nice to see everyone back 
in the library studying after tak- 
ing a week long vacation to 
watch North and South. Even 
though some of us had to miss 
some nites, Sister Trish Hill came 
through with the ole VCR. 
Trisha, next time you and your 
midnight friends decide to play 
booger and hack video- please 
forewarn the rest of us. 

Congratulations to the Kappa 
Delts who won Friday nite's Air 
Band Contest. Spontaneity and a 
reunion of the formal pledge class 
really paid off. Special thanks to 
all who participated. Sister Trish, 
Eddie Murphy has nothing on 

Tomorrow nite is the long 
awaited Kappa Delta Formal. A 
special KD welcome to all of the 
seniors' guests. The guest list is 
stacked this year with some pret- 
ty interesting characters, so I can 
almost guarantee a good time will 
be had by all. Thanks to ADPi 
sister Jill Critchley for babysitting 
our house- Frankie and Weins no 
need to bolt and lock your room.

Special Notes- Good Luck to 
the Crusaders in their last game 
against Albright tomorrow, Sorry 
Muffy, that your fiance Robert 
W. Wilson could not be here for 
the formal. But, you know what 
happens when those Big Harvard 
Football Jocks have an away 

game!! Gail D., you know it takes 
more than a weekend to grow a 
moustache! And Laura F. and 
Liz, in Pennsylvania you ask 
before you take!!!! Have a nice 
weekend girls and an exciting 
Saturday nite. 

KD Love, 


Hey Now! This Sunday, the in- 
famous Assasin Week begins.. .In 
preparation for this event of the 
century, the girls of ADPi went 
through rigorous training at the 
James Bond Institute of Hand- 
gun Handling. There they 
learned how to skillfully gun 
down a Blunder in one shot. (Cor- 
rection: "a Bunder' in one shot"). 

All machine guns are primed and 
ready to make it the third year in 
a row. 

Recently, Miss Sarah Reynolds 
witnessed a trip to Pittsburgh 
with a potpourri of cultural 
backgrounds. She is rumored to 
have had a nice time but is still 
suffering from culture shock. 

Our still mentally distraught 
president, Amy B., was am- 
• bushed and terrorized while in- 
nocently viewing the boob tube. 
Brutal savages disguised as an In- 
dian, a Cowboy, Superman, and 
assorted other hoodlums, bound, 
gagged, and detained her. Some 
tragedies are not easily forgotten. 
You can visit Amy, where she is 
resting comfortably, at her room 
during visiting hours. 

Theta Chi must have had a sale 
in their Jewelry Department. 
Dave C. purchased a lovely 
lavalier for Kathy Rave, while 
Douglas K. charged a stunning 
pin for Claudia Kuhn. Con- 
gratulations the four of you! 

We would like to wish happy 
birthdays to Jillybean Critchley, 
Donna "H" Hansen, and 
madamoisselle Debra Beck!! 

Remeber...You can run but 
you can't hide!! 

Toodle-Lu and Colleen too!!

Greetings, from the guys down 
on the Avenue. Good news, only 
11 days till Turkey day break, 
edible food for everyone. 
Sunday's Rush function was a 
definite success. We were very 
pleased with the turnout. Also, 
the spaghetti, and the garlic bread 
were a bonus. Good work Matt, 
Mac, and Flock. Newsbreak... 

congratulations to Dibbs, and 
may I say it's about time. 
Another interesting time for Opie 
last week, no bladder control 
problems though. On a sad note, 
Buddy's streak ended at 10 days, 

life goes on. Nice coat Dusty, can 
I borrow it sometime. Alas, pro- 
bation has ended for us, so 
tonight we're hoping everyone 
will come on down.

ROTC: An Opportunity 
Worth Knowing About 

For all you students out there 
who are undecided about life, 
who are suffering from the finan- 
cial strain of college, who have 
put on the freshman 15 and are 
heading towards! Life 
can be better. 

There is a program here at Sus- 
quehanna that can help you out 
of the hole you seem to be falling 
into. It's called ROTC.that is... 

Reserve Officer Training Corps. 
Wait a minute! Don't stop 
reading this article! Joining the 
ROTC force has benefits which 
can only help you and that you 
are not even aware of. 

I know, you think you have to 
sign your life away the minute 
you set a foot in class... 

wrong.! A com- 
mittment is not asked to be made 
until your junior year. For those 
of you who don't know what 
you're planning to do after col- 
lege.. .consider ROTC. It will take 
care of making any job decision 
by allowing you to choose a 
branch of the army which suits 
your needs. You're guaranteed a 
job after college. If you like to 
travel... ROTC is the place for 
you...there are Army bases all 
over the world where you could 
be stationed. 

How many people have bank 
accounts with next to nothing in 
them? ROTC offers scholarships 
which will pay for your entire 
education, plus books, plus.. .now 
brace yourself...$100 a month. 
Now... I ask you, who can beat 

Even if you don't want to com- 
mit, ROTC can still help you. It's 
something that can't afford to be 
passed by. Those students in- 
volved in ROTC are not required 
to take gym. ROTC asks that you 
exercise by doing P.T. (physical 
training). ROTC can be an im- 
portant addition to any resume, 
because it shows that you have 
leadership ability and can 
handle responsibility... something 
which all companies look for 
when hiring. Overall, the advan- 
tages of ROTC are quite good 
and all it asks of you is to take 
one class a week and march, a lit- 
tle, now and then! If you ask me

There is Still Hope 

Mid-term grades have created 
a lot of depression and ner- 
vousness around the campus, but 
don't let them get you down. If 
your grades are lousy there are 
still 7 more weeks to pick them 
back up and turn them into good 
grades. Mid-term grades, believe 
it or not, are to the students' ad- 
vantage. They give students the 
chance to see if they are failing 
and they give everyone a chance 
to seek help and pull up low 
grades before finals. 

There is plenty of help around 
the campus if you know where to 
look. Susquehanna faculty are 
here to see that students get an 
education and will do everything 
they can to help. Do not be em- 
barrassed to seek out help if you 
need it, that is what part of your 
tuition goes toward. 

Gary Fincke, Director of 
Academic Skills Center, suggests 
that students come down and use 
the tutors. There are plenty of 
tutors for all subjects. 

There is a tutor for every math 
course offered. A subject such as 
math should be studied on a daily 
basis instead of just coming in the 
day before the test. In order to 
understand and learn new study 

or reading skills it takes time, so 
don't keep putting it off or you 
may end up failing. 

There are tutors for reading 
and studying. A student may 
have a good mind intellectually, 
but just not be reading or study- 
ing the correct way. These skills 
can be brought out by the tutors. 
They help students learn the cor- 
rect way to study or how to read 
to understand the text and take 
proper notes. Understanding 
what you are reading is the key 
goal. One cannot just memorize 
items in order to get a good grade. 
One must understand it and be 
able to use it in an essay or ob- 
jectively. The Skills Center pro- 
vides study skills for both objec- 
tive and essay tests. Another sug- 
gestion is to take a tape recorder 
to class if you cannot keep up 
with what the teacher is saying. 

A student who has good grades 
can also benefit from the Skills 
Center. They can improve their 
skills and get even better grades. 
A lot of students have the ability 
but are not using it properly. This 
is what the Skills Center is for. 

Students may just have the 
wrong schedule of classes at the 
same time. The Skills Center will 

Alcohol Workshop 

A workshop on the legal 
liabilities of serving alcohol will 
be held on Saturday, Nov. 16, 
from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in Seibert 
Auditorium. The workshop is be- 
ing co-sponsored by the Student 
Life Office and Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon and is designed to provide 
students with up to date informa- 
tion concerning liabilities when 
serving or- providing alcohol. A 
review of the SU Alcohol Policy 
will be presented by Dean Ander- 
son, followed by a presentation 
on liabilities and risk manage- 
ment by attorney John Muncer. 
He will answer questions re- 
garding the recent Pennsylvania 

laws that have dramatically in- 
creased the exposure to lawsuits 
for sponsoring "social host" 

Attendance of the workshop is 
required for representatives of all 
groups most likely to provide 
alcohol at events. This includes 
attendance of various members 
of all fraternities, sororities, 
residence halls, Avenue houses, 
and Student Government. There 
is room for 30 additional students 
to attend the workshop. If you 
wish to attend, sign up at the 
SGA office in the lower level of 
the Campus Center. 

Search Is On 

The search is on! There are 
currently two search committees 
on campus working hard to find 
both a new Chaplain and a new 
Academic Vice President for the 

The Chaplain Search Commit- 
tee, under the leadership of Dr. 
Neil Potter, has received about 
70 applications. They have begun 
to review these applications, and 
will follow this process with 
telephone interviews. They hope 
to invite prospective Chaplains to 
the campus both before 
Christmas and immediately 
following Christmas vacation. 

Hopefully, the new Chaplain will 
be chosen before the end of this 
year, so he/she or they (yes, two 
couples have applied) will have a 
chance to experience the college 
life while our interim chaplain, 
Pastor Shaheen, is still here. 

Dr. Feldman, head of the 
English department, is in charge 
of the Search Committee for the 
Academic Vice-President. They 
are still accepting applications 
and nominatios until Nov. 15. 
They have already received some 
100 applications. Until all the ap- 
plications are in, this committee 
is just waiting.

help the student sign up for the 
proper classes that are right for 
him intellectually. Getting 
properly placed in classes and 
having an even workload is an 
important factor in determining 
one's grades. 

The Skills Center is located in 
the basement of Blough Learning 
Center. Feel free to walk in or 
call. The hours are 9-4 daily, and 
7-9 Monday - Thursday evenings. 

Some other suggestions for 
students are to talk to the pro- 
fessors and see if they can assist 
you, or make an appointment 
with Dean Anderson. 

Dr. Fritz Kreisler, the Director 
of Counseling, suggests making 
an appointment if you just need 
to talk. Maybe you are having 
some personal problems, trouble 
with your roommate or home- 
sickness, which is preventing you 
from studying and concentrating. 
He is there to talk about anything 
if you need him. Maybe some- 
thing is bothering you and you do 
not realize that it is affecting your 
grades. Go and talk— that is what 
Dr. Kreisler is there for. Good 

Don't forget to make your 
reservations for the ARA

Remember, our turkeys will 
be served by SU Faculty.

them come in traditional

favorite professor today!

XIV Creating Practical Practicums 

Friday, November 15, 1985-THE CRUSADER-Page 7 

Accounting Grad Returns 

There's been a good deal of 
talk lately about Susquehanna's 
courses and their pertinence to 
real life as we know it today, 
especially those concentrated 400 
and 500 level "I know everything 
else already" senior courses and 
specialized "focusing in on one 

piece of dust" business and math 
classes. Suggestions currently fly- 
ing around include everything 
from complete reevaluation of 
curricula to simply giving the old 
courses new names. But I began 
to think while trying to decide on 
my preregistration schedule: why 
doesn't Susquehanna University 

implement a whole new "In- 
dependent Study System" like so 
many other top-notch schools are 
currently experimenting with. 
Schools such as Brown, Oberlin, 
and Hampshire College offer self- 
designed majors in almost any 
concentration imaginable! Tufts 
University's "Experimental Col- 
lege" offers such classes as Sign 
Language, Ethnomusicology, and 
auto repair courses. Why, then, 
should we stick strictly to the old 
classroom lectures instead of 
giving self -designed practicums a 

Webster's Dictionary defines a 
"practicum" as "supervised prac- 
tical application of a previously 
studied theory." Keeping this in 
mind, if we could present our 
own practicums, seminars, senior 
research, and special study credits 
to our professors, then a whole 
interesting new world of learning 
could be opened here. All we 
would have to do would be to 
write a short proposal for our 
practicum, have it approved by 
professors, and then, go to it! 
Imagine if this could be your 
yearly schedule for independent 
study credits: 

ENCES: Individual Study 
(Rubik's Cube Experimentation).

actions as a guide. Prerequisite:

Everyone is always saying, 
"This place would be so great if 
we just didn't have classes." So 
we've just seen the solution! Do 
we really need classes after all? 
Everything we do here teaches 
us! So let's go tear down Bogar, 
Steele, Fischer, and Heilman 
Halls and replace them with more 
dormitories, OK? 

Alright, forget it.

Another Loss But Looking Good 

The Susquehanna University 
football team, although losing the 
Goal Post Trophy, turned in a 
fine performance against Juniata 
College. "1 am really proud of the 
team's effort," said Head Coach 

William "Rocky" Rees. "It was a 
gutsy performance against a team 
that we did not match up against 
on paper but did measure up to 
on the field." 

The Crusaders fell behind 
30-17 early in the fourth quarter, 
but pulled to within six points 
with 7:25 left on a one-yard run 
by freshman halfback Joe Witt of 
Shamokin, Pa. However, the 

MAC-leading Juniata defense 
held SU on its final two posses- 
sions to secure the victory. Sus- 
quehanna's record is now 2-7 
overall and 2-6 in the MAC. 

Quarterback Ken Hughes of 
Philadelphia, Pa., who previously 
set two school records this 
season, added four more to his 
credit during the Juniata contest. 

The senior signalcaller estab- 
lished new single-season highs for 
completions with 110, attempts 
with 236, touchdown passes with 
14, and total offense with 1592 
yards. Hughes broke the record 

for the most yards passing in a 
season against Upsala College on 
Nov. 2 and set a single-game 
mark for passing yardage with a 
300-yard performance versus 
Widener University on Oct. 12. 

The unsung Crusader kicking 
game turned in more fine results 
last week. Punter Bryan Ravitz, a 
senior from Vineland, N.J., 

averaged 43.8 yards on five 
boots, including a season-high 
63-yarder that was downed at the 
Indian four-yard line. Ravitz is 
the MAC's leading punter with a 
40.9-yard average. 

Placekicker Randy Pozsar, a 
junior from New City, N.Y., was 
perfect on three point-after con- 
versions and also nailed a 28-yard 
field goal. Pozsar is the 

Crusaders' second-leading scorer 
with 33 points. He has not missed 
in 1 5 extra-point tries and is six 
for nine on field goals. 

SU's tackling lead will be up 
for grabs on Saturday, when the 
Crusaders face Albright College. 
The current is junior end Dave 
Kells of Phoenixville, Pa., with 

95 tackles, including three 
quarterback sacks. Close behind 
Kells is team captain Jim Brown 
of Oaklyn, N.J. The senior 
linebacker has registered 92 

Albright is 2-6 this season, 
both overall and in the MAC. 
The Lions, under rookie Head 
Coach Bill Popp, were defeated 
by Widener on the road last 
Saturday 36-10. This will also be 
Albright's final game of the 1985 

The Lions' main offensive 
weapon, running back Matt Pam- 
mer of Wyomissing Hills, Pa., 
will not see action this week due 

to a knee injury. The talented 
sophomore gained 729 yards in 
Albright's first seven games and 
is the MAC's second-leading 
rusher with a 104.1 average. 

"With the loss of Pammer, 
Albright is trying different ways 
to move the ball," noted Rees. As 
an example, the Lions have 
moved quarterback Stan Berg- 
man, a junior from Ventnor, 
N.J., to Pammer's backfield spot. 

In place of Bergman, sophomore 
Mike Crovetti of Cherry Hill, 
N.J., will start at quarterback. 
Crovetti completed 10 of 26 
passes against Widener for 113 
yards. He also scored Albright's 
only touchdown on a four-yard 

Leading the Lions' receivers is 
Dan Poruban, a sophomore from 
King of Prussia, Pa. He has 
caught 21 passes for 227 yards 
and two touchdowns. 

"On defense, Albright plays 
very aggressively, regardless of 

the score or its record," said Rees, 
who is also completing his first 
season at the Crusader helm. 
"That reckless abandon causes 
them to make mistakes 
sometimes and make great plays 
at other times." 

Albright's leading tackier is 
Scott Navitsky, a junior 
linebacker from Hazlet, N.J. 
Another key defender is safety 
Andy Ruppert of Pottstown, Pa. 
The senior has a team-high four 
interceptions to go along with 
two fumble recoveries. 

SU is riding a three-game 
winning streak over Albright, in- 
cluding a 29-7 victory last year at 
Amos Alonzo Stagg Field. The 
Lions, however, hold a 17-4 ad- 
vantage in the overall series, 
which dates back to 1913. 
Kickoff at Shirk Stadium in 
Reading is set for 1:30 p.m.

Chaplain's Corner — 

You are right, my friend, absolutely right — some folks seem 
always to be in the spotlight. No matter where we may be 
found, some mention of their names in adulation occurs. Most 
people, you say, remain unheralded, unsung and unrecognized. 
And here again, you are absolutely right. But what to make of it 
— this business of being numbered among those who are 
without singular acclaim? Good question, really. Perhaps we 
can deal with it a bit during the worship hour in Horn Medita-

Alcohol Awareness Workshop Held 

Last Saturday, a lecture was 
held in Seibert Auditorium on 
Alcohol Awareness. This lecture 
was co-sponsored by Sigma Phi 
Epsilon and the Student Life of- 
fice. Dean Anderson began with 
a look at the University policy 
over the years and then introduc- 
ed John Munster, attorney for 
Northumberland County. 

Dean Anderson began by say- 
ing the University attempts to 
have a policy that makes sense. 
Up until 1972, SU was a dry cam- 
pus, when the SGA proposed 
that students over 21 could drink 
in their private rooms. From 
1 972 to 1 978, alcohol appeared at 
more university functions. Drink- 
ing at open events like spring 
weekend began around 1975. 
Then there was a six year period 
where there wasn't an event 

where someone didn't get hurt. 
Phi Mu Delta got kicked off cam- 
pus. We were bad neighbors. 
Down on University Ave., people 
became more aware that drinking 
was going public. 

"Spring weekend a year ago 
was the spring weekend I thought 
was the best, the best organized. 
Those working with it really tried 
to keep out any high school peo- 
ple,...a well run event." The local 
security arrived and arrested 
"three of the students who were 
working the event for selling 
alcohol without a license under 
the concept of constructive sales. 
They brought their brisk ticket 
for the weekend's events. Under 
the concept of constructive sale, 
they were arrested. Selling 
alcohol without a license is a 
misdemeanor charge. For those 

three students the consequences 
were very serious." 

At that point they made 
changes in alcoholic policy. At 
the workshop last Sept. a liquor 
control board agent and an at- 
torney explained why they had 
made the changes. Etean Ander- 
son feels "pretty good about how 
those have been operating, 
although groups have gone back 
to ways to charge that wouldn't 
get you hung up in constructive 
sales. The more scary part is a 
case in the state of PA to define 
social host's rules," who are at 
great risk both civilly and 
criminally if you are involved in 
providing alcohol to those 

Dean Anderson went on to in- 
troduce attorney John Munster, 
a Susquehanna graduate of the 

Kolbert Publishes Book 

On Sunday Nov. 10, a recep- 
tion was held to congratulate Dr. 
Kolbert on his recently published 
boo k The Worlds of Andre 
Maurois. Jack Kolbert, chairman 
of Modern Languages Dept. at 
Susquehanna has taught French 
literature and language on several 
American college campuses. He 
has been decorated by the French 
government as Chevalier of the 

Ordre National de Merite and as 
Officier de Palmes Academiques. 
He has authored or co-authored 
textbooks in French; a book on 
Michel Butor; and a major 
volume on the French critic, Ed- 
mond Jaloux. 

Dr. Kolbert began working on 
this book 20 years ago at the 
University of Pittsburgh. It began 
when Dr. Kolbert was writing 

Subject of Jack Kolbert 's book, Andre Maurois 

another book and wished to have 
the preface written by Andre 
Maurois. A year later Andre 
Maurois asked Dr. Kolbert if he 
would write a book about him. 
Closely working with Andre 
Maurois, Dr. Kolbert had a study 
and free entrance to Maurois' 
house. Besides having access to 
all Maurois' works, he had lunch 
with Maurois most days. When 
Dr. Kolbert had eventually 
finished his book, it was 800 
pages long and no one would 
publish it. His wife convinced 
him to put the manuscript aside 
until he could negatively criticize 
it. For five years the manuscript 
sat in a bathtub in their San Fran- 
cisco apartment. Two years ago, 
the SU Press called him to ask if 
they could publish his 
manuscript. After much editing, 
the 276 page book was published. 
The Worlds of Andre Maurois 

is an in-depth look at Andre 
Maurois, the most commonly 
read French author. It is a 
painstaking analyses of Maurois' 
works: published, unpublished, 
and private. Maurois was an im- 
portant figure in international 
literature, and was the founder of 
science fiction. Dr. Kolbert feels 
that his book "is the most impor- 
tant research document on 
Maurois." Maurois produced ac- 
curate histories of France, 
England, and the U.S. avoided 
stylistic extremes, but he was 
open to new ways of viewing 

class of 1981 and Temple Law 
School graduate. Currently he is 
the attorney for Northumberland 
County. Mr. Munster said "It's a 
pleasure to be here this morning 
to talk to you about the liabilities 
where the risks are taken where 
alcohol is involved in any parties. 
Let me give you a little 
background on my position in 
Northumberland County over in 
Sunbury. I'm special council in 
the county. In that capacity, 1 act 
as defense attorney for the public 
defender and I represent all 
juveniles that get in trouble with 
the law. A large part of my prac- 
tice involves summary cases 
before the district magistrate and 
that's where I come across a lot of 
the alcohol related offenses 
-disorderly conduct, public 
drunkeness, underaged drinking, 
etc. As Dean Anderson stated 1 
graduated from SU in 1981 and I 
can't believe the changes that 
have taken place here since that 
time. In the state of four years, 
one fraternity lost its charter, and 
I believe alcohol and drugs had 
something to do with that. Open 
parties are a state of the past and 
no alcohol at spring weekend. 
The alcohol policy is a lot tighter 
as well and I think a lot of these 
probably feel that the university 

is responsible, but that's not the 
case. The University's job is to 
prevent you from being exposed 
to legal risk. So you are going to 
be the people at risk at these par- 
ties, not the universities. Since 
December of 1983, a land mark 
case, which was decided by Penn- 
sylvania board, changes the 
whole law in the area of social 
host and greatly increases your 
individual risk and liability as the 
host of a party. In these types of 
cases, you are talking about 
serious injury and talking about 
$40-10,000. Ill speak to you 
about the civil problems that 
you'll face. I thought the best 
way to get at this is through ex 
amples. Today is Saturday, so 1 
guess some of you are planning 
parties tonight. Well assume you 
and your roommate are both 21 
and go down to Kellers to get a 
quarter keg and stop for liquor. 
All the friends you invite over are 
over 2 1 , so every one at your par 
ty is going to be over 21. You 
provide plenty of alcohol. Your 
party breaks up about 2 a.m. with 
everyone totally tanked. On his 
or her way back to his or her 
room, one of your friends stag- 
gers in front of an automobile

SU Press List 

In 1980, Susquehanna Univer- 
sity revived its Press, which was 
founded in 1946. In the 1960's 
the Press became inactive, but 
now as an affiliation of the 
Associated University Presses, 
SU has published ten books. Dr. 
David Wiley, the director of the 
Press, said: "For a school of our 
size it's quite a nice thing." He 
said the main goal for the SU 
Press is to publish 10 books a 
year. This kind of operation will 
increase the prestige and make 
the Press better known. Also, it is 
valuable for recruiting faculty. 

An editorial committee of 10 
faculty and administration 
members review submitted 
manuscripts. If they decide that 
the manuscript is publishable, 
they send the manuscript to an 
expert reader for reactions and 
possibilities in revisions. The Sus- 
quehanna University Press "seeks 
scholarly manuscripts for 
publication in book form. 
Material may be in a variety of 
disciplines, particularly the 

Humanities and Social Sciences. 
No textbooks, fiction, poetry, or 
highly technical works in scien- 
tific or mathematical disciplines 
can be considered." The books 
already published are:

Preventing Nuclear War 

Dear Editor, 

The following is comment 
which is the result from the lec- 
ture in Greta Ray Lounge on 
Thursday, Oct. 3 1 . It was led by 
Professor Chayes on the topic of 
"Preventing Nuclear War." 

1 walked into the lecture with 
an attitude that was quite op- 
posite of when I walked out. My 
attitude on nuclear issues was 


The following is a reprinting of 
last week s "Our Corner. "Due to 
the number of letters that we 
received, we decided that the col- 
umn needed rerun. Boldface 
areas are points the editor would 
like read carefully. The responses 
and this week's "Our Corner" 
begin on page 4. 

This column is inspired by the 
alcohol workshop on Saturday 
and it is by far the hardest yet to 
write. The topic is a popular one, 
but the view, I'm sure, isn't. 
Topic: drinking. View: why? For 
all you wise guys who said, 
"Because I'm thirsty," I just wish 
that was why. 

Let me set one thing straight 
before I begin. I'm not a prohibi- 
tionist, not even close. At the risk 
of a visit from the local 
authorities, HI be the first to ad- 
mit that I drink. I enjoy tossing 
back a few while watching a ball 
game or at a party, but that is not 
what I'm talking about. 

one that is quite common to my 
colleagues: "Smear the Commies. 
Their only goal in life is to 
eliminate an American, so let's 
bomb them, if they ask for it." 
This view stems from the ig- 
norance of the whole situation. 
Not ignorance of the physical 
facts of nuclear war, such as their 
power, range, etc., but rather that 
of the realistic consequences of a 

I'm talking about what occurs 
every weekend, and often during 
the week, on this campus and 
campuses everywhere. Let me 
cite an exchange I overheard in 
the bathroom, non-verbatim, 
"Hey, you getting wasted 
tonight?" "Yeah, I'm going to 
(fraternity)." This is not social 
drinking as a part of the evening. 
The sole purpose of the mission is 
to "get wasted." 

If you ask people why, you get 
typical answers: "You need to 
relax after the work," and "I had 
a killer test. I need to unwind." 

This is a crock of . 

These are not reasons, they're ex- 
cuses. The whole idea is to 
"forget my problems." Escaping 
for a night doesn't make prob- 
lems disappear. Of course, we all 
heard this years ago. 

So why don't we listen? Most 
people claim they like getting 
drunk. I've said it myself. But 
when you lay in front of a toilet 
and thank it for being there, in- 
sisting that your having fun is 
ridiculous. Clearly, the famed 
peer pressure is a key ingredient.

nuclear battle. Chayes comment 
laid it on the line. "Most of us 
think in terms of a chess game. 
We see men sitting on both sides 
of the table pushing buttons. 
What we don't acknowledge is 
the image of a person whose skin 
had been burnt off as a result of 
that button being pushed." 

(Continued on page 10) 

Not that friends force people to 
drink, but that to fit in people 
have to drink at college. My sister 
is a freshman at IUP (which was 
the site of many alcohol-related 
arrests about two weeks ago.) She 
is having trouble adjusting 
because she doesn't drink much 
and can't find friends who don't 
drink for their sole entertain- 
ment. This is a sad social com- 

As I've said, I'm not trying to 
preach, especially because I'm 
just as guilty, but we are here to 
learn, not party. If you're here to 
party, go somewhere cheaper. A 
1.5 blood alcohol content plus a 
1.5 GPA doesn't add up to ten 
grand a year. 

While I've avoided it thus far, I 
must give credit where credit is 
due. The Greek system can share 
some of the responsibility for the 
excessive partying. People would 
most likely still drink, but the 
Greeks make it 'easy, and often 
necessary. Whatever they tell 
you, they do pressure pledges and 
visitors to drink. In addition, 
their glorification of alcohol has 
to be cut weekly from their col- 
umns. I invite the Greeks to re- 

What does all this mean? To be 
honest, I'm not sure. I just don't 
understand why people find it 
necessary to get drunk three 
times a week. I don't understand 
why people have to drink to have 
fun. And I don't understand why 
people view it as a right when it's 
against the law for the majority 
of us. Hey, I believe in "old 
enough to fight, old enough to 
drink," but it is still the law. 

I'm just glad this is a small 
campus and no one has to drive 
to get home. Last Sunday's 
tragedy involving Pelle Lind- 
bergh is something to learn from: 
something so that his death was 
not so senseless. One final ques- 
tion: Why would a local Catholic 
church sponsor a BYOB party? > 
Leaves me speechless. Have a 
reasonable weekend. 


Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the

terested in writing for The

The Phenolum 

by Doug Chamberlin 

XV The Cozy Seibert Fire Alarm 

"'It happened again! It actually 
happened again!' These ecstatic 
cries filled the early morning air 
surrounding Seibert Dorm last 
Tuesday morning as the trust- 
worthy "early detection" fire 
alarm system once more 
entertained us with it's one-note 
indoor carillon festival. This 
week's selection, entitled "The 
Fifth Movement of Seibert Hall's 
Unfinished Symphony in B 
minor," was performed at about 6 
a.m. with no advance notice 

For those of you who don't 
have any idea what those critics 
are raving about, you just missed 
the fifth and probably the most 
intense of this year's famed false 
alarms of the Seibert fire 
detection and alarm system. The 
banging of obnoxious bells 
around the hour of six on 
Tuesday morning once again sent 
students out into the early 
morning mist, most of them clad 
in nothing but nightwear. It had 
happened before; once around 
two in the morning and once 
during a recital in Seibert 
Auditorium. This time a cigarette 
butt in the attic set it off. One 
time it was a hot popcorn 
machine. Who knows what the 
next catalyst will be. It could be 
smoke. We have smoke sensors 
almost everywhere. It could be 
heat. The elevator shaft is a great 
place for hot air to collect and set 

off a heat sensor. Or maybe the 
water pressure will be the culprit 
next time. Since the heat- 
activated sprinklers are linked to 
the fire system's computer in the 
basement, does this mean that if 
two people flush toilets at the 
same time it could send us all 
rushing out into the black night 
air again? Hopefully not, but we 
better de-synchronize our 
bathrooms (just to be sure). 
Perhaps a ruthless group of 
jealous thugs from a different 
dorm will suddenly burst into 
Seibert, pull the alarm box, and 
sneak out the back just in time to 
watch us all scurry from our 
home like ants fleeing from their 
flooded anthill. Whatever the 
cause, we are at the mercy of our 
own protector, so what can we 

Nothing really, but we make 
the best of it. Guys stand around 
in the lobby and eye all the girls 
in their nightrobes. It's the only 
time we see all of the Seibert girls 
without makeup. It's like a 
demented midnight fashion 
show, with all of us standing 
around looking at what everyone 
else wears at night. We should 
have an announcer present. .."On 
your right, Dave is wearing a 
non-matching set of sweatwear 
from Boscov's, just the thing for a 
cool autumn evening at six in the

Financial Aid Seminar 

The Honors Program 
Weekend Seminar Series project 
sponsored a seminar on Financial 
Aid (a topic near and dear to all 
of our hearts) this past weekend. 
Dr. McGrath, interim director of 
financial aid at Susquehanna, 
was the speaker. He spoke on 
how financial need is determined 
and how SU goes about pack- 
aging financial aid. 

Susquehanna uses what is 
called the uniform methodology 
in determining financial need. 
The formula to determine finan- 
cial need is: Total Cost of School 
-Family Contribution = Demon- 
strated Need. The family con- 
tribution is determined by the 
family's total income, total assets, 
the number of people in the fami- 
ly and the number of people in 
college. This is all calculated into 
a formula, and out pops your 
demonstrated need. Well it is not 
that simple but those four facts 
are all you need to calculate 
about what your financial need 
will be. 

Dr. McGrath pointed out that 
the people who make up the for- 

mulas to determine need expect 
that 12% of our parents' assets 
will be used to send us to college. 
However, 35% of our assets are 
expected to go towards our col- 
lege education. So a student with 
$1000 dollars in the bank is re- 
quired to use $350 dollars 
towards their education. If that 
same person's parents had that 
same money in their name, the 
family would only be required to 
put $120 dollars of it toward the 
student's education. 

Each person who enters SU is 
ranked for financial aid purposes. 
These ranks are determined from 
a number of sources. SU decides 
what kind of student it wants and 
gives that type of student a 
higher priority. Higher priority 
ratings tell the financial aid office 
to offer that person more of their 
need as grants rather than loans 
or work study. In this manner SU 
tries to get the representative 
population it wants. 

When asked about what 
students can do to get more free 
(grant) money, Dr. McGrath 
responded by saying that there is 

not much more we can do to get 
money from the government or 
SU. He did recommend, 
however, that everyone keep 
their eyes open for outside 
scholarships in your own com- 
munity. He said that many 
banks, churches, and a number of 
other sources offer free money to 
the right people. There is alot of 
private money out there if you 
qualify for it. 

Dr. McGrath wanted to stress 
that if any student has a question 
about his/her financial aid, stop 
by the office and ask about it. 
The financial aid office is here to 
help students.

Dear Editor: 

I am writing in rebuttal to last 
weeks editorial concerning drink- 
ing on campus. I agree that we 
are here to learn; but, we are also 
here to grow and have some fun 
before our lives are filled with the 
responsibilities and pressures of 
the outside world. This is a time 
of preparing ourselves for life and 
getting the "wild hairs" out. This 
will be the last opportunity to be 
among so many friends and have 
such a carefree lifestyle. All this 
boils down to is that if a person 
wants to spend his/her time get- 
ting drunk 3 or 4 nights a week it 
is his/her business. It is a learning 
process, and if it is a mistake, 
then he or she can only learn 
from it. 

The sole purpose of an evening 
on campus is not to "get wasted;" 
it is a time to see old friends and 
make new ones. It is a time to 
discuss classes and listen to 
music. It is a time to dance, and 
sing, and have fun. Drinking can 
enhance or inhibit a person's fun. 
It is a choice of the individual. 
Not everyone drinks to get 

I have been to two of the 
fraternities on this campus, occa- 
sional dorm parties and various 
downtown parties. I have never 
been pressured into drinking. I 
have yet to see peer pressure in-

flicted upon anyone else. Drink- 
ing games are played among 
friends, but only for those willing. 
Did it ever occur to you that 
people tend to drink because of 
boredom? If the frats didn't have 
parties occasionally there would 
be no place for the large amount 
of students to socialize. A 
downtown livingroom cannot 
hold 100+ students. The campus 
offers little to no activities outside 
of movies and an occasional 
singer in the Crusader Castle. 
When was the last time the 
students were polled as to the 
content of the Artist Series? And, 
let's face it, the grove offers 
nothing outside of a few taverns 
and a mall. So what do you sug- 
gest? One way to break up the 
monotony of the campus and sur- 
rounding area is to have parties. 
If there were no parties, this cam- 
pus would be more of a suitcase 
campus than it already is. Yes, 
the parties promote the drinking, 
but again it is our choice. 

Another point I would like to 
make is that people don't insist 
they are having fun, they are hav- 
ing fun. They may be less in- 
hibited and more likely to be 
themselves without feeling so 
self-concious. Not everyone 
drinks to forget their problems. 
On the contray, I believe very 
few do. 

One last comment, the remark 
about the church sponsored 
party was asinine. The functions 
held at the church hall are not 
sponsored by the catholic church. 
They have bills to pay like 
everyone else and are kind 
enough to rent their extra space 
to various clubs and frater- 
nities/sororities, so that we can 
have dances, and not sit in our 
rooms getting bombed. The com- 
ment was obviously not well

This is a response to the "Our 
Corner" that appeared in last 
weeks Crusader (11/15) on the 
proverbial topic; drinking. If the 
author of that article is not a pro- 
hibitionist, then what are you? 
What occurs here every weekend 
j is not a "mission to get wasted," 
| rather it is a quest to have a good 
j time, which does not necessarily 
j involve alcohol. It is a person's 
j own choice whether to drink or 
i not to drink. Nobody "makes" 
i anyone drink; no, not even the 
greeks. To even think that one 
can not have friends, or find 
friends because they do not drink 
is absurd. I know many popular, 
greek affiliates, even non-greek 
affiliates, who do not drink 
because they choose not to do so. 
Those who need to drink to 
socialize or "to have a good time" 
have a serious problem that 
deserves professional help. 

Obviously, the author of last 
week's article needs to under- 
stand the greek system a little bet- 
ter. As a member of a Sorority, I 
know it is against our National 
bylaws to drink while wearing 

our pin, and while wearing our 
sportswear. Also, we are not 
allowed to sponsor any alcohol 
related events other than our for- 
mals. Even then, great care and 
preventions are made if alcohol is 
to be served. Drinking as part of 
being greek is non-existent, that is 
just an ignorant correlation that 
many people make. 

Also, associating one's GPA to 
their "BAC" (blood-alcohol con- 
tent) is ridiculous. We all know 
we are at college to learn, but we 
also are here to meet people and 
to expand upon our Susquehanna 
experience together. After all, 
every single one of us here has 
something in common, that is, 
this very college we are at- 
tending. What we do here to get 
the most out of what we are pay- 
ing for, is up to the individual. 
Many corporations and com- 
panies pay their employees to in- 
terract with prospective business 
deals and what does that consist 
of? A luncheon including a few 
drinks or maybe just a drink after 
work. If we are wrong here by 
drinking socially, then the entire 
world is at fault. 

What it comes down to is this, 
I honestly do not think people get 
drunk to have fun - personally, I 
do not need a beer to have a good 
time - if one is so against alcohol 
then why aren't you as adament 
against drugs? Is it because you 
are not directly influenced by 
them and you do not see the out- 
ward affects? Believe me, drugs 
are here, more than you realize 
and they are against the law at 
any age. But that is not the issue 
at hand. We should thank God 
that we can drink around campus 
because if SU decides to go dry, I 
do not think people will hang 
around, play Trivial Pursuit and 
drink coffee all night. Instead, 
they will drive to socialize at 
Bucknell, Lycoming, or 
Bloomsburg. Then you would 
find yourself attending more 
funerals than parties, and I do 
not think anyone would want to 
experience such a tragedy. 

I do not think one should make 
their adament alcohol dislikes so 
public. You are entitled to your 
opinion, but do not sit there and 
condemn those who like to go to 
parties and meet people. If given 
fraternities do not have parties, 
how would you get to know 
about the greek system if you 
should decide you want to be in a 
sorority or fraternity? Student in- 
terraction is part of our ex- 
perience in common. To drink or 
not to drink? It is entirely up to 
you - do with it what you want. 
Have a great weekend -and I will 
sign my name to this.

I am writing in reply to your 
editorial in which you raised the 
question about excessive drinking 
on campus. I must say that I do 
have better things to worry 
about, but I do have some views 
that I feel should be aired. Like 
you, I too enjoy having a few 
beers while watching TV on 

weekends or while attending a 
local frat party. Many people can 
attest to this. But I have often 
wondered myself how people can 
enjoy getting "wasted" to the 
point of being sick just for the 
heck of it. From personal ex- 
perience, I can say that I find no 
pleasure in that thought. Don't 
get me wrong, please; I find 
nothing wrong with having a few 
drinks, as long as it's done respon- 
sibly. Heavy drinking and getting 
wasted ultimately leads to prob- 
lems. Don't let anyone tell you 
otherwise. Just ask the Green Ar- 
my who had to repair the field 
hockey nets every Monday; and 
check out those sidewalks on 
Mondays. I do not enjoy getting 
pieces of broken beer bottles in 
my shoes while I walk to and 
from dinner. I ask you; are these 
the actions of responsible and 
sober people? By the way, 1 do 
feel that you left out one item 
about Pelle Lindbergh's death. 
His blood alcohol level was twice 
that of the legal limit. I ask again; 
how responsible was he? 

With regard to resting some of 
the responsibility on the Greek 
system, I can see that this will 
cause alot of disagreement. 
Serving beer is a method that 
they use to attract people to their 
houses. The problem, I feel, lies 
with the partiers and not with the 
frats. I can imagine that many 
people may take your editorial in 
the wrong perspective. They may 
feel threatened by it and view it 
as being prohibitionist. I see from 
what you say that you aren't. I 
want you to know that you have 
some support here.

I am writing in response to 
your column about the alcohol 
awareness workshop. Your infor- 
mation implying that Greeks 
force tl\eir pledges, sisters or 
brothers to drink is incorrect. I 
have never had to drink if I did 
not want to; and when I do not 
drink, I am not laughed at or put- 
down by any of my sisters. 

Being a Greek, it disappoints 
me to have the finger of whom to 
blame for some of the drinking 
pointed directly at us (the Greeks) 
when independents drink just as 

A disappointed Greek, 
Amy Fuller 


To the author of "Our Corner." 
Speaking as a pledge of Phi Mu 
Delta I can honestly say, I have 
never once been forced to even 
take a sip of alcohol during my 
pledge term. Any drinking I care 
to do is of my own free will. Your 
scapegoating of the Greek 
organization is the wrong way to 
go. Joining the Greek Organiza 
tion is much more than drinking, 
but you will never understand. If 
you pledge you will find out.

Move, move, move! Banzai!! 

Yes, students of Susquehanna, 
we have a new theme this year. 
You may recall last year's theme 
to be apathy. This year's seems to 
be Alcohol. It appears that since 
Mr. Hoefel's article of Nov. 15, 
1985 was printed, fraternities, 
sororities, and yes even in- 
dependents have had some sort of 
passionate reaction. I'm sure glad 
that it took an important issue 
such as this to awaken our happy 
little community. 

I have a good number of 
friends who are independent, and 
a good number of friends who are 
Greek. By the way, they all look 
the same to me. I find myself in a 
position to be able to see and 
understand both sides to some 
degree. There is a drinking prob- 
lem on this campus, like on most 
campuses. If there wasn't one, 
why would there be such a great 
deal of defensiveness on the part 
of so many? As Mr. Hoefel 
stated, "Getting wasted" is a 
popular pass time. Many Greeks 
were offended by his remarks. 
O.K. Greeks, take some advice 
from this GDI. Educate the com- 
munity. Sig Ep just raised money 
for Leukemia research. Phi Mu 
Delta supports the Ronald 
McDonald House. KD sisters 
were out last St. Patricks day col- 
lecting money for charity. Sigma 
Kappa sisters had a program this 
past week on Alzheimers Disease. 
You Greeks do so much good, 
why don't you spend more time 
educating others about this 
aspect of your college lives? 
Possibly a constructive rather 
than destructive approach could 
be used. 

1 guess what 1 really want to 
say is, "Hey! Let's get off our 
duffs and fight for something of 
importance." Somehow, being 
outraged over a letter about 
alcoholism on campus doesn't sit 
right with me. I, for one, favor 
constructive complaints. Thank

P.S. Thank you Tom Hoefel for 
inspiring some debate on this 


Last Friday's editorial page in- 
spired me to sit down once again 
to write to our editor. All three of 
the editorials; "Finished Yet?", 
"Committee Against Night 
Testing", and "Our Corner", 
spark areas that I feel I need to 
comment on as student body 
president. It is hard to decide 
which one to begin with, but III 
first comment on the one that 1 
have the least to speak about. 

J. David Stanton, Jr. writes to 
the editor again to complain 
about a project on our campus. 
Must 1 remind J. David Stanton, 
Jr. that "patience is a virtue." The 
project that he speaks so unkind- 
ly of will be a seating area and a 
campus bulletin board will be 
placed in this area. It is an effort 
by the university and two 
donating organizations to im- 
prove our campus and pay tribute 
to a past student, and much to 
your surprise construction does 
take time. Maybe they are 
waiting for different contractors 
to come in to do work, maybe 
they are waiting for better 
weather, or perhaps they are 
waiting for more funds. 
Whatever the case, those who are 
complaining,.. .take a Stresstab! 
Furthermore, J. David Stanton, 
Jr. it is not your or my place to 
set deadlines. 

Secondly, the editorial about 
night testing introduced a lot of 
good points and I'm glad to see 
students taking a stand on how 
they feel about issues, but the 
"CANT" committee must realize 
they will not be effective. The 
Student Government Association 
is designed to represent the stu- 
dent body and if a group of peo- 
ple have an issue they are worried 
about they must channel them 
through SGA if they want effec- 
tive results. I'm not trying to 
discourage people from ex- 
pressing their views, but please let 
me know so that I can help. 
Please take advantage of SGA, 
because we want to help you. In 
addition I would like to add that 
SGA has looked at this problem, 
but because no one tells us their 
views we cannot go to the ad- 
ministration with a strong case. 
However, I have found that the 
Financial Accounting classes 
have a good reason for testing at 
night, but I won't go in-depth 
here. Overall, I oppose night 
testing and will do everything I 
can to present a case to the ad- 
ministration. Please send me a 
note on how you feel about this 
issue, or stop by the SGA office 

when I'm in, or call me at Ext. 

Finally, I wish to comment on 
the editor's editorial about the 
topic of drinking. For this part 1 
am speaking as SGA president, 
vice president of Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon, and as an Interfraternity 
Council officer. I believe the 
editor, when writing this article, 
showed his ignorance and 
misrepresented his fellow col- 
leagues. I don't feel that drinking 
is part of college life, however I 
feel it is part of personal growth. 
Whether one decides to drink or 
not, it is a decision that affects 
them personally, not their 
academic life, which is why we 
are here and why we wake up so 
early and trudge in the rain to get 
to class on time. I believe that the 
author of this article showed total 
ignorance when he brought 
about the topic of greeks on cam- 
pus. Greeks are not responsible 
for the excessive partying, it is 
the students who decide to party, 
the greeks do not go out and drag 
people into their house and make 
them party. However, the greeks 
provide the opportunity at times, 
for people to socialize. In this 
text, socialize means to com- 
municate with friends, dance, 
meet new friends, and to relax 
after a hard week of classes. 
Drinking is not necessary to ac- 
tively socialize. In most cases 
there are more parties in the 
residence halls than there are 
within the greek community. 
Furthermore, the greeks do not 
make it necessary to drink. As a 
member of a fraternity I never 
saw a pledge forced to drink nor 
have 1 ever seen a visitor forced 
to drink. This past weekend, after 
reading the article, I visited four 
of the five social fraternities and I 
did not see anywhere that it was 
necessary to drink. Also, being in 
a fraternity does not mean that 
one glorifies alcohol. Being a 
fraternity brother is much more 
meaningful. Finally, if you are 
not aware of what the greek 
system is, then don't put us 
down. Also, if your editorial was 
inspired by Saturday's workshop 
which dealt with the legal 
liabilities of serving alcohol, why 
didn't I see any Crusader editors 

Also, the applied judgement on 
the local Catholic church was not 
necessary. 1 think it is great that 
there is a nearby social hall that 
the students may rent to have 
functions. The location of this 
particular hall means that the 
students in attendance do not 
have to get into cars and drive 
back to campus after consuming 
intoxicating beverages. The 
Catholic Church is not breaking 
any state laws by allowing a 
B.Y.O.B., and I'm sure God 
doesn't mind. So my advice to the 
editor is "do not judge lest ye be 

James H. Faust 

In last week's "Our Corner..." 
the editor solicited Greek 
responses to his comments on the 
Greek System and its ties to 
drinking, which I, as a Brother of 
Phi Mu Delta, intend to do. 

To begin with, the article was 
obviously written by an ignorant 
non-Greek. The written abuse of 
the Greek System was far too 

broad; every statement made was 
a generalization on the entire 
system. The specific comment 
"The Greek System can share 
some of the responsibility for the 
excessive partying" was your first 
mistake. Sororities are, without a 
doubt, an integral part of the 
Greek System. However, sorori- 
ties, apparently unknown to the 
editor, cannot share the respon- 
sibility for "excessive partying." 
Sororities are not allowed to have 
any alcohol whatsoever in their 
respective houses, forget about 
harboring a social gathering to 
"get wasted." This fact was 
blatantly overlooked by the 

You also stated that "...the 
Greeks make it easy (to drink);" 
how hard is it to drink on a col- 
lege campus? If you are not of 
legal drinking age, there are other 
ways of obtaining alcohol, if you 
wish, besides "the easy way." Just 
a few examples are attending dor- 
mitory or off-campus parties, 
which occur at least as frequently 
as Greek parties; or a student 
could have a legal adult purchase 
alcohol for him; or perhaps even 
use false identification to buy 
alcohol himself. 

Your next comment on the 
Greek ties to drinking was that 
"...Greeks make it easy, and often 
necessary. Whatever they tell 
you, they do pressure pledges ... 

to drink." This is simply asinine, 
and who in the world are you to 
slander the Greeks like this? 
Allow me to state, on the records, 
Phi Mu Delta never pressures 
pledges to drink. I have no idea if 
other Greek Organizations do, 
but that is none of my business, 
nor is it yours. Your hiding 
behind such powerful yet inac- 
curate generalizations turned my 
stomach, and I'm sure it affected 
other Greeks similarly. 

Your final unfounded insult 
stated, in different words, that in 
every Greek Organization there 
is weekly "glorification of 
alcohol" in each article of Greek 
News. For openers, there has 
been at least one week when Phi 
Mu Delta's Greek News has been 
omitted, but that is getting off the 
topic. The Greek News is used as 
a tool by the Greeks to inform in- 
terested parties about the week's 
happenings and perhaps to poke 
fun at Brothers or Sisters, or even 
other Greeks — no harm done. 
To say that "their glorification of 
alcohol has to be cut weekly from 
their columns" is simply an over- 
reaction; alcohol is rarely men- 
tioned in Greek News, never 

I feel that* you should more 
carefully gather your facts before 
you go out on such a limb; 
generalizations should be used far 
more carefully. Perhaps you 

should sit in on an Intra 
Fraternity Council meeting and 
learn something about our Greek 
System: its purpose, its unity. 

In closing, I do not solicit a 
response through The Crusader, I 
offer to sit down with the editor 
and discuss the real Greek

As president of a fraternity, I 
feel compelled to respond to "Our 
Corner" editorial of this past Fri- 
First of all, although frater- 
nities may make it easy to get 
alcohol, we don't drag the masses 
up to the house for the sole pur- 
pose of "getting wasted" as you 
have so unintelligently stated. 
Fraternities provide the campus 
community with places to social- 
ly interact. It's the individuals 
decision as to what he or she 
wants to do that night, not the 
fraternities themselves. Besides, 
fraternities are more than just 
parties. All organizations here on 
campus (and I'm speaking of 
fraternities and sororities) are 
very concerned about communi 
ty service projects, and philan-

It's Greek to Us 


To start off this week, the 
Brothers would like to con- 
gratulate the Brothers and 
pledges of Phi Mu Delta for 
raising over 500 dollars for the 
Ronald McDonald House. 
Again, we would like to thank 
those who helped us raise over 
400 dollars for fighting 
Leukemia. You see, the Greek 
system plays a very important 
role in serving our community! 

We would next like to thank 
our wonderful little sisters for the 
banner and the reception Friday 
night. A good time was had by 
all. We love you, girls! Also, we 
would like to announce that Herb 
has finally transferred to a more 
difficult school. The Ralph 
Kramden School welcomes him 
and our luck goes with him. Herb 
is remembered here at The Slum 
by leaving us yet another institu- 
tion of learning: The Faust 
School of Elevator Riding. Of 
course, Herb is the first holder of 
the Doctorate of Swiftness. He 
successfully went on socializing 
after removing his head from the 
wall. Anyone interested in apply- 
ing can pick up an application at 
the top step. The Brothers would 
again like to thank Phi Mu Delta 
for the hospitality Friday night. 

This great time did not prevent 
the Alcohol Awareness Seminar 
from being a success, however. 
We feel that all who attended did 
gain an understanding of the 
ever-changing liquor laws in the 
great state of PA. Next on the 
Agenda, was the Penn St. - Notre 
Dame game. The Nittany Lions 
won, but all who participated in 
the game at home lost. Finally, 
our heroic travellers (see last 
week's column) made it Chinese. 
The food was excellent as were 
their napkins. The kumquats 
were exceptional and they only 
cost X!! The napkins, later on in 
the evening, proved to be trend- 
setters. The Brothers were fully 
protected. To get a full explana- 
tion of this reference come on up 
to the slum and ask. The tag-team 
competition was enjoyed by all, 
especially Bunsen Berner who 
finished in about 2.24 seconds. 
Again, the team of Dave and Jim 
proved victorious for yet a 
second time. The Cook School 
has yet another graduate: Mr. 
President, who finally completed 
his long, difficult schedule. A 
new group was also formed that 
evening: S & T with their stirring 
renditions of all your 
favorites... over and over again! 

This past Wed. was our For- 
mal Rush night. Thanks to all the 
interested guys who showed up to 
see the movies. As a reminder, we 
will be playing football out on the 
field Sunday, and the next Rush 
function will be Wed. night. Feel 
free, however, to come up 
anytime. The door's open and 
Craig never has any work to do. 
The weekend came to a close on 
Sunday with our football game. 
What happened to your eye, 
Dave? Then we sat around 
watching the tube until "The 
Young Ones!" Update: Rick is no 
longer pure. The quote: "Well 
need a fifth cup for tea this morn- 

In closing, the Brothers would 
like to thank Mom and Dad 
Straka who provide us with such 
good food. Also, Jim is now ac- 
cepting applications for a formal 
date, please apply at the bottom 
step. You must be hard of hear- 
ing and partially blind for con- 
sideration. Hey, ZTA get ready 
for the time of your lives. Tonite

Did We Win? 


Howdy!! First we'd like to con- 
gratulate our great pledge class 
on their very successful service 
project. They performed a Walk- 
A-Thon for the Christian Council 
and raised over $500. Wonderful 
job guys and thanks to everyone 
who supported the event. Next 
time you guys go to Perkins 
please use the right entrance. 

We'd like to thank all the 
freshmen who came up to our 
house on Tuesday evening. It was 
great to see such a good turnout. 
You guys are always welcome up 
at the house so keep coming up 
and get to know all the brothers. 

Last Friday the brothers along 
with the pledges had the first an- 
nual Anchorman competition. 
Like always the game was a com- 
plete success with many of the 
brothers sinking into the depths 
of ugliness. Litey gets the gayness 
award for a false alarm while 
pledge Beefstake had the most 
original way of expressing 
himself. The winning team was 
totally awesome with Timmo per- 
forming his nose trick to sink op- 
posing members. On Saturday 
the Mudhouse sponsored a 60's 
party. There was much twisting 
going on around the house. It 
was a ballsy time for all. The 
presidential penthouse suite was 
very busy using the chair on this 
fine evening. Wad showed us a 
new acrobatic way to have fun 
but after seeing the outcome I 
don't think Johnny will try it 

The AOW award for this week 
goes to Litey for the second time 
this year. It seems that he and 
Rambo are going to duke it out 
for first place. The reason why 
Litey wins it this week is because 
of his manner of having fun with 
his two friends. The quote of the 
week was, "Is there a beach 
around here?" If anyone has an 
answer to this could they please 
tell me. 

The advice for the week is 
study, study, study. Let's face it, 
we do have a week off starting on 
Tuesday so put forth all your ef- 
forts to perform well in your 
classes. Thank you. While we're 
on the subject of vacation, the 
brothers hope that everyone has 
an enjoyable and safe Turkey 
Day. Lumber, make sure that 
you control yourself during 
Thanksgiving dinner. We all 
know that you could get out of 
hand with the spuds and the 
PAUL pie. 

The brothers and pledges will 
be taking a road trip to Penn 
State University on Friday 
evening to visit our Phi Mu Delta 
brothers there. It always is an ex- 
citing event so let's all get excited 
for some great games of caps. We 
will be back on Saturday after- 
noon to enjoy the good old SU 

With the defeat of Russia's 
team on Sunday by the Bears 
came sole possession of first place 
for the Giants. Come January 
time the Giants will be one of two 
teams still playing football. I can 
see the bowl getting closer and 

That's it for now, well see you 
in a couple of weeks.

realize all the hopes and dreams 
that lay lifeless and unfulfilled 
beneath the soil.

Well, we're back after a week's 
vacation and the first topic we 
would like to address is last 
week's article, "Our Corner" in 
The Crusader. 

The Brothers feel using the 
author's own words that the 
whole article was a "crock of 

." Obviously, 

the author is not a member of the 
Greek system because then he 
would realize that most of what 
he has said is false. 

One of the few true things he 
said was that drinking would still 
occur if there were no fraternities 
at Susquehanna. 

The editor also stated that he 
did not want to preach. At the 
same time the author blamed the 
Greek System partly for excessive 
partying and suggested that those 
. who do want to party should go 
somewhere cheaper. Since we 
(greeks) are the main villian in 
this editorial, I feel obligated to 
inform the writer that we (Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha) have a higher 
average grade point average than 
the non-greek population. 

Another fallacy is that the 
Greek system makes it necessary 
for people to drink. Again speak- 
ing for Lambda, no matttr what 
the author states, we do not 
pressure our associates or any of 
our visitors to drink. As a matter 
of fact, we do not care if any 
visitors come to our house, let 
alone to drink. 

Finally, we agree that the Pelle 
Lindburgh tragedy is something 
to learn from, and the author 
really has not. If it was not for 
the Greek system and for the 
local Catholic church which 
sponsored a BYOB formal (the 

formal which left the author 
speechless) there would be more 
Pelle Lindburgh incidents. 
Students would undoubtedly 
travel downtown to drink and 
other groups (not just greeks) 
would have their formals as far 
away as Danville. No matter 
what the author thinks, this 
would increase the likelihood of 
such tragedies. 

Keep in mind that like the 
writer of the editorial, I do not 
want to preach. The author does 
have a valid point and there is a 
minority of people who do have a 
drinking problem. The question I 
ask is: should the Greek system 
be held responsible for this- 
minority or should society as a 
whole be held responsible? If 
such actions were not acceptable 
in the first place, there would be 
no problem. 

We would like to congratulate 
the football team on winning the 
last game of the season. Special 
acknowledgement goes to 
Brother Ken Hughes on being 
named Division III All-American 
and also Brother Jim Brown, 
MAC Player Of The Year. Great 
season guys! As far as the soccer 
team goes, Brother Steve Euler 
did not receive any awards. Sorry 

p.s. Please do not send me to the 
bunny dude ranch, Guz. 


Here's hoping everyone has a 
safe and happy Thanksgiving!! 
Don't gobble too much! We 
extend our best wishes to Zeta 
Tau Alpha upon hearing their 
good news and we hope they 
grow and prosper. Special thanks 
to all those who attended our 
cocktail party Friday, and for all 
your support. 

Next week Deb Holt will be 
celebrating the day she has been 
waiting for 21 years, on 
Thanksgiving Day no less. And 
knowing Deb, you can be sure 
shell be giving thanks for that 
one! You will be hearing more 
about Deb in future issues. Today 
our Sigma spotlight is shining 
everso brightly upon Michele 
Bridges and Debbie Boyle. 

Michele is a senior business 
major with an emphasis in 
marketing curling irons which 
dispense their own conditioner 
(isn't it terrible that some of us 
have such good memories Mi?). 
Until she starts reaping her 
millions off this incredible 
invention, Michele bides her time 
by eating Snickers bars and being 
a party animal. Don't ever make 
her laugh while you're eating 
with her though, because she has 
a tendency to spit her soda at 
you. Thank goodness her 
allergies were acting up at the 
formal. It's not everyone who 
gets a hangover before the party 

begins Michele could open her 

own shoe store, if curling irons 
fail. She irons everything (and we 
mean everything), and she 
despises anything dirty. Ask her 
what specials are sometime. Some 
of Michele's favorite sayings are 
"OQ9," "Oh Sure," and "I've 
certainly kissed my share of 

Deb "Baby Oil" Boyle is the 
infamous yellow crayon. She 
enjoys spending her time sleeping 
on bathroom rugs. That one 
really takes the door off its 

hinges. And no Deb, you don't 
sleep in the attic either. Deb has a 
definite love for Alan Alda and of 
course, Mick Jaggar. Her life 
ambition is to go to a Stones 
concert, or become a Dallas 
Cowboy cheerleader. She's proud 
to say she's not preppy anymore. 
Deb is a Poli Sci and Sociology 
major, but she has something 
against Urban Life. You can 
often find Deb eating marinated 
artichoke hearts on the 
weekends, and she brags that you 
can take the keys out of the 
ignition in her GRE while it's still 
going. Deb's famous line is "Hail 
Sigma, Hail Sigma..." She's done 
a very fine job as President of our 
sorority, and as a senior, is 
looking forward to retirement at 
an early age. 

The question of the week is 
'Where is Amy Summerfield???' 
We miss you around and doing 
crazy things Amy. Best of luck to 
you in your swim season! ... 1 
discovered this weekend why 
Dana dances on bar tops. She's 
the only one who's head doesn't 
hit the ceiling. Seriously, have a 
banana! What a triumph! Ha!! 
Thanks Tater for all your help 
and cooperation, but why do you 
have red fuzz baked into your 
socks? Take carc.and until your 
eyes meet Sigma print 
again. ..RBG 


Happy Friday!! Is everyone 
ready to go home? I think so. 

The Kappa Delta formal was, 
as always, a great time. I hope all 
the sisters, their dates and their 
guests feel the same way. It 
was a happening event. Everyone 
looked great! Thanks to Rob and 
Tim for supplying the outstand- 
ing music, and thanks to Jim 
Brown and T.D. Glad to see that 
you guys brought along a few 

We all danced the night away 
and Gina, did you really think 
you'd get away with flashing 
everyone? That stuff is against 
the law. Gail, why did you have 
such a hard time controlling your 
date, or did he have a hard time 
controlling you? Jilly, I'm glad 
you had a great time just hanging 
out in the corner. Also, Fern, we 
are sending you a bill for our coat 
rack that your date was swinging 
from all night. Muffy, you were 
out of control, but you've really 
got to learn to walk downstairs, 
not fall. Speaking of falling, 
Diane, we've got to keep Gregg 
on his feet for the Spring formal. 
Stephanie, was the tux worth 
renting? You looked sharp. Of 
course we all had to sing our silly 
songs, and do the locomotion 
before we left. Overall, it was a 
great night, and I just want to 
take this opportunity to thank 
my date for a great time! 

Anyway, we had a lot of fun 
on Thursday trying to stuff 
ourselves into Laura Beckie's 
VW - thanks to everyone who 
showed up! Well, that is all there 
is. Have a great Thanksgiving 
I'm sure we all will be rolling 
back to campus just to go home 
again for our long Christmas 
break! Until next time ... 
'Take it Easy" 
PS-a special hello to Sisters 
Jacquie's cousin Sallie who is an 
avid fan of the Greek news!! 
PPS-Thank you to the ADP 
sisters who babysat our house.

Well, the past week sure had its 
share of surprises. Brothers 
Hooter and Clams made surprise 
visits this past weekend. Getting 
reacquainted with the brothers 
was primal; they had a great time. 
Friday's social event was a good 
time. Congratulations to Gregor- 
for setting everything up. To the 
guys thinking about joining, we 
hope yall had fun and keep 
coming down. You guys and 
anyone thinking of joining, come 
on down and meet the brothers. 
The William Perry gathering was 
also fun; we all enjoyed watching 
our favorite appliance on Letter- 

Rumor has it Opie and Dribbs 
have something in common that 
they're not too proud of. The on- 
ly question is "Who's next?", 
Bozo? Nah, couldn't be. Yak had 
an interesting time playing con- 
ductor for Amtrak. After last 
week's meeting, a shocker took 
place in 401, Bd and Furline did 
the unthinkable. We can only 
thank P-head for his assistance. 
The list keeps on growing with 
the holy grail. Now Furline has 
added his name to the list of nuts 
which are: Buddy, Dribbs, Yak, 
Messy, Flock, Opie, Dart; and 
the record-breaker with three, 
Dante. Spreaking of Dante, was 
that you cruising at 30,000 feet 
last Sunday or was it just a 
mirage? Hey Bo, will you stay 
and party with us some weekend? 
From the far side, 


ZTA is extremely happy to an- 
nounce that we are finally being 
installed!!! The big days (only two 
weeks away) are Dec. 6, 7, and 8. 
Let's keep the Zeta pride and 
spirit, and show National that we 
are the best. We would like to 
thank Mrs. Dobbs for all her 
love, support, and constant en- 
couragement throughout our 
pledging days. Also, we would 
like to extend a warm welcome to 
Lori Bankert, our Field Repre- 

Tonight, we're having a super 
bash with Sig Ep. Hopefully, the 
night will be just as fun-filled as 
last weekend. Right Sharon? Yes, 
girls, our very own Sharon W. 
had a slumber party last Friday 
night. Don't feel discouraged and 
depreseed if you didn't get an in- 
vitation, she only sent out one. 
No regrets were R.S.V.P.'d. 
Margie got in the spirit Saturday 
night, and I will say no more. 

Poor Kat wandered aimlessly 
around campus Friday night 
before she finally found her way 
home. Odd enough, it took Deb a 
half hour to walk home from 
Aikens. But what was she doing 
there???? Linda H. has taken up a 
new modeling career at the 
Lycoming Mall. Rumor has it, 
she even had her own 
photographers there. Kristin is 
moving off campus to her own lit- 
tle paradise above D.J.'s. Anyone 
interested in having a hot bath 
must bring their own Mr. Bubble. 
Many thanks to all the 
freshmen women that showed up 
at our Open House Thursday 
evening. Mocktail or not, a good 
time was had by all. 

A happy belated birthday goes 
out to Cheri Parisi and an early 
wish to Anita Kloiber. 
Remember that God's greatest 
gift, is His gift of life. And, God's 
greatest gift to life, is His gift of 
another year. Be thankful and 
have a great time. 

Speaking of thankful, Happy 

Thanksgiving to all. Have a great 

break and don't drink and drive. 

We wouldn't want to lose you. 

In ZTA love, 


Baby Doe 

Aired at SU 

, Dilemmas involving the moral, 
legal, and political issues that 
arise with the birth of a severely 
handicapped child will be the 
focus of "Three Baby Does: A 
Study In Contrast," a lecture by 
Dr. Elof Carlson at 7:30 p.m., 
Friday, Nov. 22, in the Campus 
Center Meeting Rooms. 

Dr. Carlson, a researcher in 
gene structure and function, 
served as a scientific expert in the 
famous Baby Jane Doe case that 
involved a New York family with 
a severely handicapped infant. , 

A professor of biology at the 
State University of New York, 
Stony Brook, Dr. Carlson holds a 
doctorate from Indiana Universi- 
ty and has been awarded a 
lifetime appointment as a 
distinguished teaching professor 
at Stony Brook. 

Dr. Carlson has taught at 
UCLA; Queens University in On 

(Continued from page I) 

here on campus. He is knocked 
unconscious, suffers from inter- 
nal bleeding, and spinal cord in- 
jury. After about a three week to 
one month stay in the hospital, 
she has a $20,000 hospital bill 
plus she is partially paralyzed 
from the waist down. Now this is 
an extreme example, but this is 
from an accurate case more or 
less. Your friend has a lousy in- 
surance policy and is facing a 
huge hospital bill. So the first 
thing she does, she goes down to 
Philadelphia and hires the best 
personal injury attorney she can 
find. She says fit me in when you 
can and the attorney names you 
and your roommate as the defen- 
dants in the case. You're sued for 
a $20,000 hospital bill, $20,000 
payment suffering, and since 
your friend is partially paralyzed, 
her job opportunities are going to 
be limited. They sue for 
$20-40,000 for lost wages. Are 
you at risk as a result of this? Are 
you liable? And 1 would answer 
at this point, you are probably 
not liable in the situation where 
you are 2 1 and all your friends at 
the party are 21. The reason for 
this is Pennsylvania has refused 
to extend the common law liabili- 
ty to an adult social host who 
served intoxicating beverages to 
another adult. The theory behind 
this is that consumption is the 

Your 21 year old friend should 
know enough about the dangers 
of alcohol. She is at fault for 
drinking the alcohol more so than 
you are at fault for providing the 
alcohol. You're probably not 
liable and the reason is that the 
situation that you now are in- 
volved in deals "with minors and 
that presents an inconsistency 
towards adult life. There is a 
possibility that now the theory 
they are using for minors could 
apply in the adult situation." 
Remember that when you talk 
about a minor and alcohol is in- 
volved, you mean someone under 
21, not 18. Take the same situa- 
tion, but you also invite some 
friends under 2 1 . It is one of these 
underaged people who gets hurt. 
Your underaged friend is 20 
years and 364 days, but he is still 
underaged. Are you at risk, are 
you liable? You're at substantial 
risk and probably will be liable. 
"When I threw my parties in 
1 980- 1 , 1 wasn't at risk, but as the 
result of the 1983 case involving 
Cogeny vs. Pottersville Bound 
Co., 2 years ago, your risk is 
substantial. An 18 year old boy, 
Mark Cogeny, worked at Pot 
tersville Bound Co. and they 
were having a Christmas party. 
He was at the party and they 
served alcohol. He drove home, 
and was in an accident. He suf- 

tario, Canada; San Diego State 
University; the University of 
Minnesota; and the University of 
Utah. His biography, "Genes, 
Radiation, and Society: the Life 
and Work of H. J. Muller," 
earned him a nomination for the 

1982 Pulitzer Prize. He is also a 
member of the Advisory Council 
of the Danforth Foundation, the 
Genetics Society of America, and 
the American Society of Human 

fered brain damage, (was) totally 
disabled, and his parents hired a 
good attorney. They sued the 
host of the party. The court 
ruled a host is negligent persay in 
serving alcohol to the point of in- 
toxication to a person that isn't 
2 1 years of age and could be held 
liable for injuries approximately 
resulting in minor intoxication. 
This means that all a minor child 
has to do is go into the court 
room and present a birth cer- 
tificate saying he is less than 21 
years old. The only other thing he 
has to prove is that he got his 
alcohol from the host. He has 
made his case." 

Again take the same situation, 
your underaged friend leaves the 
party, picks up a brick, and 
throws it at a passing car. The 
driver is seriously injured. If he 
sues you, you are at your greatest 
risk and liability. You are 
violating the law by serving 
alcohol to a minor. The court will 
protect the third party. When a 
guest damages somebody else's 
property the host is reliable for 
the underaged guest. "As host of 
a party, if you serve alcohol to a 
minor, you are most likely 
reliable for his injuries and/or for 
the injuries of a third party." 
Under current law the host is not 
responsible for those over 2 1 . The 
court is concerned with the fur- 
nishing of alcohol, not the con 
sumption, when dealing with 

The courts are pointing out the 
inconsistency of the adult theory 
and the minor theory. Munster 
feels that in a few years that the 
law that the host is responsible 
for a minor will hold true for an 

The police and magistrate are 
sick and tired of dealing with 
public drunkeness, and are now 
cracking down. Furnishing 
alcohol to a minor, misrepre- 
senting your age, selling alcohol 
without a license (charging at 
parties), or distributing or 
possessing small amounts of mari- 
juana are misdemeanor three. 
You will be given a fine of 
$100-500 and up to 30 days in 
jail. Public drunkeness is con- 
sidered as appearing in public 
under the influence of alcohol 
and appearing to be a danger to 
yourself or others or annoying 
another person in the vicinity. A 
summary offense consists of 
$0-300 fine and/or up to 3 mon- 
ths in jail and costs. A second 
charge of public drunkeness 
means $300-500 fine and 1 year 
in prison. 

"A lot of times what happens is 
your stopped for public 
drunkeness, disorderly conduct, 
and you start giving the cop a 
hard time and he claims resisting 
arrest," which is a $5000 fine and 
2 years in jail. D.U.I., 1.00 blood 
content, is a misdemeanor 2 with 
a minimal fine of $300-500 and 
48 hrs. minimum in jail. Your 
license will be revoked for 12 
months and you will be requested 
to go to school for highway safe- 

Attorney Munster wrapped up 
the lecture with a question and 

answer period- Most of tnose 
who attended the seminar were 
R.A.'s, presidents of sororities 
and fraternities, representatives 
from Avenue houses, etc.

Our Corner 

I had only an inkling of the 
tidal wave of protest that last 
week's editorial would bring. The 
test way to describe the past 
week is hostile and enlightening. 
My head has been placed on the 
block and I wish to hold trial 
here. (My apologies to anyone 
who has studied law or court- 
room processes for my "altered 

The atmosphere inside the 
courtroom is tense. A few 
moments ago Crusader editor 
Thomas D. Hoefel was escorted 
into the courtroom disguised in 
dark sunglasses, a hat, and hiding 
behind a copy of "The Crusader." 
He has spent the last three days 
in protective custody while 
preparing his defense. Hoefel is to 
stand trial on charges of 
misrepresentation of the greek 
system and overstatement of the 
drinking problem on SU's 
campus. Additional charges of 
unwarranted attack on the 
Catholic church have been add- 
ed, among others. Hoefel has 
maintained all along that his col- 
umn has been misinterpreted and 

Judge: The prosecution has 
presented its case quite forcefully, 
with eight letters to the editor. 
Now, the defense may present its 

Defense: Your Honor, 1 will at- 
tempt to prove that most of the 
charges in this case are trumped 
up. If it pleases the court, 1 would 
like to approach each charge 

J: Charge # 1: That the de- 
fendant did falsely accuse the 
greek system of pressuring people, 
to drink.

D: Your Honor, 1 can only 
plead guilty as charged. 1 wish to 
apologize to all who were of- 
fended. I'm afraid 1 went on the 
word of the grapevine instead of 
fact, and 1 am happy to see that 
the greeks were quick to correct 
the injustice. I would encourage 
the greeks to continue to try to 
clear up such misconceptions. 

J: Charge #2: That the de- 
fendant held the greek system 
responsible for all drinking and 
judged them unfairly. 

D: Your Honor, 1 plead not 
guilty on the basis of lack of 
evidence. 1 did not write anything 
that made the greeks "the main 
viliian of this editorial" as one let- 
ter stated. Only one paragraph 
was devoted to the greeks and I 
have already retracted part of it. I 
merely suggested that "the greek 
system can share some of the 
responsibility for the excessive 
partying," and I stand by that. 1 
am still not attempting to blame 
the greeks, only trying to get 
them to be aware of the problem 
and admit that they need to help 
promote responsible drinking. 
The contention that people 
would just go elsewhere to drink, 
while probably true, does not ex- 
cuse anyone. Also, the statement 
that greek columns don't glorify 
alcohol is simply untrue; we have 
the original copy to back that up. 

J: Charge #3: That the de- 
fendant did wrongfully condemn 
the Catholic church for sponsor- 
ing a BYOB party. 

D: Your Honor, I must again 
plead not guilty on the basis of 
lack of evidence. One question, 
"Why would a local Catholic 
church sponsor a BYOB party?" 
was all 1 asked. I have been in- 
formed that they are not breaking 
any laws and are performing a 
great service. 1 agree that it is 
good of the church or any other 
local people to allow students to 
rent their facilities, but I think 
the legal question is irrelevant. 
How would that organization 
morally stand if a student left 
that party drunk and was in- 
volved in some sort of accident? 
Again, this is a question and I am 
not judging, 1 am inquiring, as it 
is my job to do.

«ya«r ipt«t*oi and gracious hen* away Iraaa hana." 

J: This brings us to the fourth 
charge: That the defendant 
maliciously attempted to prompt 
replies by writing a controversial 

D: Your Honor, I am surely in- 
nocent of this. 1 write a piece 
every week on a topic of interest, 
almost always looking for 
response. I invited the greeks to 
respond because I assumed there 
would be a differing of opinions 
and 1 wanted their views of the 
problem. While several good 
points were made, they were lost 
as 1 became the victim of abusive, 
inaccurate, and highly defensive 
replies. It appears that I have 
struck a nerve, which means 
again I did my job. 

J: Charge #5: That the de- 
fendant did imply that the greek 
system is a bad influence on 
campus, and that the defendant is 
ignorant of the system. 

D: Your Honor, I plead not 
guilty to the first part and overall 
guilty to the second, but with ex- 
planation. On the first, 1 did not, 
in any interpretation, make such 
implications. 1 believe it would be 
impossible to say in six sentences, 
really only four, as much about 
one topic as has been attributed. 
We publish something almost 
every week about a worthy ac- 
tivity some greek organization 
has done. The letter from Mr. 
Dilkes, president of Sig Ep, 
pointed out many of these ac- 
tivities. I must now comment to 
Mr. Dilkes, however. His 
evidence was submitted eight 
hours past deadline and was not 
in proper form. He informed us, 
however, that it must be accepted 
because 1 asked for it and that 
failure to do so would be 
"trouble." This is incorrect, as the 
editorial board has the final say in 
what is printed. I would like to 
note that we have printed every 
letter, editing only one due to 
redundancy, insults and all. 

On the second part, I agree 
that I do not fully know the "ins 
and outs" of the greek system. 
However, some of the statements 
made about certain "rules" are 
difficult to believe in a lieteral 
sense. I will try to believe them 
and 1 hope they are true. 

J: The final charges are that 
the defendant did express the 
opinion that all the students 
drink, that they are to be con- 
demned for such, and that the 
defendant is "adamantly" against 

D: Your Honor, these charges 
are simply ludicrous. 1 only say 
that much must be read between 
the lines while omitting the lines 
themselves to come to such con- 

J: I have just been handed an 
additional charge: that the de- 
fendant did attend a fraternity 
party on Saturday night and was 
seen drinking heavily. 

D: Your Honor, that is plain 
and simple character assassina- 
tion. Yes, 1 did attend a party. 1 
was at Sig Ep's chugging competi- 
tion. My roommate was solicited 
in the cafeteria to participate. I 
did not participate, but 1 was his 
team's manager. We lost in the 
first round, after which we left. 1 
had about half a cup of beer in 
that time. Yes, we were carrying 
on, but only with the mood of the 
party. We had had about one 
beer each before going up. The 
whole rumor is a pathetic attempt 
to discredit my position. Even if I 
had been drunk, which would 
have been stupid timing on my 
part, it would be irrelevant. My 
point all along has been the prob- 
lem drinker, the habitual of- 
fender. Your Honor, 1 have no 
regrets, save one sentence, of 
anything 1 have written. 1 stand 
by my editorial. The defense 

The jury is still out, I suppose, 
but 1 have a few closing com- 
ments. To Mr. Faust: correct, an 
editor did not attend the alcohol 
workshop, but we are not re- 
quired to attend all events. We 
had two reporters there, which is 
the same as our being there. I will 
read the results of that workshop 
and I have a tape of the event. 

Finally, the statement this was 
"obviously written by an ig- 
norant non-greek" is a 
demonstration of why greeks and 
non-greeks rarely see eye to eye. 
Here is where education and a lit- 
tle compromising is needed. 
Rather than spit barbs back and 
forth, let's try to come to an

thropies. Examples are the two

on but 1 think you see my point... 
Lastly, 1 find your comment 
regarding the B.Y.O.B. formal at 
St. Pius X Church rude and un- 
called for. Instead of criticizing it, 
why don't you look at it in the 
sense that maybe a lot of lives are 
being saved because students 
aren't having to drive to an "off- 
campus" formal. I think that it is 
great that we have a place to go 
such as St. Pius X Church. All 1 
can say is, way to go Father

SGA Spotlight 

Who is the man behind the 
scenes of Student Government? 
Jim Faust! This week we will 
take a quick glance at the presi- 
dent of SGA. 

Jim is a junior, Human 
Resource Management major 
and has been involved in SGA 
since his freshman year. As a 
freshman, he was a senator for 
Student Government. During his 
sophomore year, Jim held the 
position of Parlimentarian until 
he was elected President of SGA. 
Upon graduation, he hopes to 
become a university official while 
working on his masters degree. 
His long term goal is to be active- 
ly involved in politics. 

As president, Jim is pleased 
with the way SGA represents the 
students and the respect it 
receives from the administration. 
However, one of the problems he 
sees is that the students do not 
take advantage of the great 

potential SGA has to offer. 
Students are aware of SGA but 
often overlook the resources in 
student government. Faust says, 
"If you have any problems or 
grievances, please tell me because 
that is the only way I can

Jim Faust, SGA President 

SGA is only one activity in 
which Jim is involved. He is the 
new Vice President for Sigma Phi 
Epsilon Fraternity and won the 
most outstanding sophomore of 
the year for the Northeast district 
of the fraternity. Also, he is 
treasurer for Inter-Fraternity 
Council and works in the Cam- 
pus Center as a building 
manager. At home, Jim teaches 

Sunday school at the Trinity 
Lutheran church. He also is an 
Eagle Scout and an assistant 
Scout Master. 

Looking towards the future, 
Jim would like SGA to have an 
equal voice in making university 
decisions. More importantly, he 
wants the faculty to become 
more aware of SGA and its 
strength in the institution.

Should I Join a Sorority? 

Judiciary Board 

What will 1 gain from joining a 
sorority? What is in a sorority for 
me? Friendship is foremost. The 
college years are unlike any 
others in life, and the friends with 
whom you share this experience 
remain in your heart and 
thoughts for a lifetime. Your 
sorority sister is a special friend, 
and though you may be separated 
by distance or time, scant barriers 
of strangeness exist when you 
meet again. Sorority membership 
is lifetime opportunity, extending 
from college days through one's 

There is much to be learned in 
a sorority chapter, lessons which 
cannot be learned in a classroom. 
There are leadership oppor- 
tunities. Making decisions and 
running an efficient organization 
enables women to accept and 
meet the same challenges in their 
careers and personal lives. The 
chapter is a working model of a 
democratic society. Along the 
theory of a town meeting, each 
member has the right to be heard 
and cast her vote as the group 
wrestles with achieving a balance 
between freedom of the in- 
dividual and the welfare of all. 

Scholarship and high academic 
achievement are major priorities 
for the sorority. Group activities 
are designed to stimulate intellec- 
tual curiosity and to encourage 
each individual to stimulate in- 
tellectual curiosity, and to 
achieve her best — intellectually, 
spiritually, emotionally, and 
socially — developing a wisdom 
upon which to build her life. 

Traditions of high idealism 
have prompted every sorority to 
establish and maintain philan- 
thropic programs. These are ser- 
vice projects to the community 
and the world. Have you ever 
worked with a Brownie troop? 
Aided handicapped children? 
Adopted grandparents? Have 
you ever rocked in a rock-a-thon 
for the Ronald McDonald 

House? Organized a week of 
giving for Alzheimer's Disease. 

So, the sorority has no limits. It 
is symbols and badges, magazines 
and flowers, a special project to 
care about, but most of all it is 
people, friends — and the times 
you like to remember, the fun, 
the things you do for your school 
and your community. It is the 
people you have chosen and who 
have chosen you for a friend, as 
someone, to be proud of, today 
and always. The Panhellenic 
Council would like to invite any 
women interested in formal on 
Tuesday, Dec. 3, 1985 at 7 p.m. 
in the campus center meeting 
rooms. Here you will be able to 
meet sorority sisters from all four 
sororities and ask any questions 
concerning formal rush, which 
will start Jan. 28, 1986.

just as easily be on the steps of 
the Capital singing, "We shall

it into a fire-alarm party. If 
someone (perhaps the con-

donate even a small stereo we 
could have a nice Seibert formal

Program Resolves Conflict 

Susquehanna University's Stu- 
dent Judiciary Board is a group of 
students who hear cases that in- 
volve altercations between two or 
more students, or altercations 
between student(s) and the 
University. The University 
presents charges to the Board in 
all cases. The reason for this is 
that even if the altercation is be- 
tween two students, one or both 
of them have registered a com- 
plaint in the Student Life Office, 
and the nature of the complaint is 
that some rule or regulation of 
the University has been violated. 
Therefore, it is the responsibility 
of the University to present the 
charges on behalf of the student. 

According to the Board's ad- 
visor, Mr. Bruce Evans, the ma- 
jority of the cases brought before 
this Board arise over weekend in- 
cidents and involve the misuse of 

alcoholic beverages. Most cases 
involve theft, fighting, destruc- 
tion of property, or physical and 
verbal harrassment. 

When a student is charged 
with violating a University rule 
or regulation, he or she is given 
the choice of a hearing before an 
Administrating Hearing Officer 
or before the Student Judiciary 
Board. Since the beginning of the 
1 985-86 academic year, two cases 
have been brought before the 

If a decision made by the 
Board is appealed, the case will go 
to the Academic Vice President, 
Dr. Richard Kamber, and it could 
eventually be taken to the Presi- 

Mr. Evans feels that it may be 
"easier to accept punishment 
from peers rather than from the 
administration who may be 

about ourselves from an efficient 
fire-system such as Seibert's. 
After being rudely awakened at 
six we hold no defenses, put on 
no airs, and don't have the energy 
to hide behind a public image 
mask. A person who has just 
been booted out of their slumber 
is sometimes the only person in a 
group who is not false. The 
happy-go-lucky guy moans and 
complains. The grouchy girl is in 
too much of a haze to remember 

Nuclear War 

(Continued from page 2) 

1 am guilty of this scenario, as 
are many. The topic of nuclear 
war seemed much too com- 
plicated and horrible, so I took 
the easy road out - 1 didn't think 
about it. Chayes sees the answer 
to preventing nuclear holocaust 
not in violent demonstrations, 
but as a simple reeducation of the 
populus on the realities of war as 
a whole. Russians are not 
maniacs as we often picture 
them. They have children and 
loved ones as we do and value life 
just as strongly as any American. 

what was bugging her. And even 
the cool, self assured RA nearly 
falls down the stately Seibert 
stairs like Chevy Chase. 

So let's try to endure it by 
looking at it differently. If we 
weren't so sleepy, the scene of all 
of us huddled together with 
blankets and robes would be like 
something from a Christmas 
peom. All we need is a big sleigh. 
We already have the stockings 
and the bells. 

As a representative group of 
this country's up and coming 
policy makers, SU students must 
take time to think on this issue. 
We need not spend hours of 
research on nuclear weapons, 
simply evaluate our "enemies" as 
humans. We must rise above the 
over-exaggerated, trumped-up 
pictures that we are supplied by 
our extremely small representa- 
tion of the people involved in 
their/our government.

thought of as being in a 'superior' 
position." He feels that students 
"should be able to make fair deci- 
sions and that mostly this has 
been the case." 

The nine members of the Stu- 
dent Judiciary Board are selected 
by the Student Government 
Association. Interested juniors, 
sophomores, and freshmen must 
have a 2.5 G.P.A. or better to ap- 
ply. The interested students are 
interviewed by their senior class 
members of the Board and by two 
other S.G.A. senators. They are 
selected in the year prior to when 
they will serve. 

There are two organizations in 
conjunction with the Student 
Judiciary Board, the Academic 
Honesty Board and the Traffic 
Court. Four members of the 
Board serve as four of the seven 
members of the Academic 
Honesty Board, and three 
members of the Board comprise 
the Traffic Court.

about a Christian view of Genetic

lectures were given by men and 
women who have achieved 
Master's degrees or PhD's in their 
field of study? Well, now you 

This February, Probe 
ministries will be on campus to 
speak in classrooms on these and 
other relevant topics. Included 
are lectures in the areas of 
Current Issues, Sociology, 
Psychology, Political Science, 
Economics, Education, Human- 
ities, Literature, Philosophy, 
Religion, History and the 
Physical and Natural Sciences. 
Also available are Management 
and Business lectures. 

The topic is approached in the 
classroom strictly academically, 
and will relate to the course 
material for the class in which it 
is presented. At the end of the 
lecture there will be time allowed 
for questions and interaction, so 
that students have a chance to 
present their views. 

In addition to the classroom 
lectures, these speakers are also 
available for fraternities, 
sororities, project houses, or 
other student groups that wish to 
hear them speak on current issues 
in todays society. Some available 
lectures are Genetic Engineering, 
Homosexuality, Abortion, 
Movies and Society, Cults, Rock 
Music, and Extra-Terrestrial 

The dates of these lectures are 
Feb. 20 and 21. If you are 
interested in hosting a speaker in 
your class, or in your student 
organization, or if you are 
interested in assisting with the 
planning for this program, get in 
touch with Pete Strayer through 
Campus Mail. We welcome all 
input from both faculty and

Crusaders Finish Hot 

The Susquehanna University 
Crusaders concluded their season 
on an up note last Saturday with 
a 28-7 victory over Albright at 
Shirk Stadium in Reading. This 
gave the Crusaders an overall 
slate of 3-8 and 3-7 in the MAC. 

On their first possession, Sus- 
quehanna moved 80 yards in 14 
plays with freshman Cosmo 
Iacavazzi bowling into the end 
zone from one yard out. Randy 
Pozsar added the point -after, 
giving Susquehanna a 7-0 lead. 
Iacavazzi carried the ball nine 
times on the drive for an im- 
pressive 56 yards. 

After a poor Albright punt 
gave the Crusaders the ball at the 
Lions 41, the SU offense took 
aim at the end zone again. This 
time it took nine plays for the 
Crusaders to reach paydirt. 
Iacavazzi scored for the second 
time, this one on a 2-yard run. 
Pozsar was good on the PAT and 
the Crusaders had a 14-0 lead 
with 53 seconds left in the half. 

In the second half, the Sus- 
quehanna defense joined in on 
the scoring. With 8:21 left in the 

third quarter, sophomore safety 
Todd Coolidge returned his sec- 
ond interception of the game 26 
yards for a touchdown. Pozsar 
missed his first extra point of the 
season but the Crusader advan- 
tage moved to 20-0. 

Albright's only score came 
with just 2:59 left in the game on 
a 2-yard run by Vince Cataldo, 
who finished with 1 10 yards on 
31 carries. The extra point was 
good and the Lions closed to 
within 20-7. 

Susquehanna registered its 
final touchdown of the season 
with only 15 seconds remaining 
on a 2-yard run by reserve 
quarterback John Cherkauskas of 
Hanover High School. Holder 
Rob Sochovka grabbed a poor 
snap and ran in for a two point 
conversion to conclude the 

The game was highlighted by 
Iacavazzi becoming the first 
Crusader to run for over 100 
yards in a game as he carried the 
ball 24 times for 127 yards. 

The Crusaders first season 
under "Rocky" Rees, had some 

major individual accom- 
plishments. First of all, Ken 
Hughes broke four Susquehanna 
season passing records. Hughes 
had 118 completions on 253 at- 
tempts for 1 ,709 yards, and threw 
for 14 touchdowns (all single- 
season records). "Hughes had a 
tremendous year," said Rees, "it's 
a shame we don't have him for a 
couple more years. Hell be hard 
to replace." 

Bryan Ravitz brought his il- 
lustrious career to an end, break- 
ing a few records along the way. 
During the season, Ravitz set the 
single season record for punting 
with a 40.1 average. More im- 
portantly he became the all-time 
leading punter at SU with a 38.5 

To conclude, Susquehanna's 
1985 football season was an 
educational one. The result was a 
learning experience for many of 
the young Crusaders. This ex- 
perience will come in handy 
when the 1986 season rolls 
around and Rees sets his sights 
on a successful season. Wait 'till 
next year! 

Take Your Mark 

The Susquehanna men's and 
women's swimming teams are op- 
timistic regarding the upcoming 
season. The women began their 
season with a meet against 
Mansfield this past Wednesday. 
They have the added depth of six 
new swimmers: Tracy Summer- 
field, Julie Van Steen, borrie 
Cook, Wendy Sharman, Becky 
Etzold, and Kim Kress. There are 
two new divers: Dee Wise and 
Janet Bartles who, with the new 
swimmers, will prove to be 
welcome additions to what ap- 
pears to be a strong women's 
team. The men's team, mean- 
while, have been busy practicing 
aerobics, swimming, and 
cheerleading. In case you missed 
it, Wednesday's meet was 
highlighted by a repeat perfor- 
mance of the ever-creative men's 
team. The collections from 
Susque-Krsna flower sales go 
towards sending the members of 
each team to practice in Puerto 
Rico over Christmas break. 

Both teams travel to York 
tomorrow for a meet against 
York and Gallaudet. This meet 
will mark the beginning of the 
men's season and will prove that 
they are, in fact, better swimmers 
than cheerleaders. A big welcome 
goes to the three new swimmers: 
"Crazy Legs" Larry Bishof; Doug 
Klahre, and Roger Yost, and well 
as three new divers: Doug 
McKenna, Dave Huff and Bill 
Carter, who will be making their 
debut tomorrow. 

. This year the women's team is 
led by co-captains Amy Summer- 
field and Dianne Doelp. The 
men's team is led by Lee Kipp 
and Tom Kaufman. Both swim- 
ming teams are coached by Ged 
Schweikert and managed by Jean 
Ann Swan. The new diving coach 
is Lonnie Cambell, who is 
perhaps the most welcome addi- 
tion to the team. 
Remember the power of the

Go Up in Smoke! 

Chaplain's Corner— 

We were having lunch together the other day. Somewhere in 
the conversation, in a somewhat unabanished manner, my new- 
found and Jewish friend volunteered: "I always seek out a 
synagogue wherever I happen to be living. I need the association 
with people who cherish the values that are important to me." 

Good thinking, friend! His message came across to me loudly 
and clearly. We all need to be with folks who give encourage- 
ment to what is basic in our belief system. 

Which leads me to conclude — here is a good reason, indeed, 
for any of you to show up at your place of worship come a Fri- 
day, a Saturday, or a Sunday! 

As for me, I welcome being with those whose presence helps 
to strengthen my faith as I find myself in Weber Chapel 
Auditorium Sunday at 1 1 in the morning. 


A fire on campus not only in- 
terrupts your education, it also 
destroys property and can injure 
or kill people. Remembering 
some common sense rules will aid 
in the prevention of fires and 
their devastating consequences. 

When smoking, be sure ashes 
are cold before dumping them. 
Never leave a burning cigarette, 
cigar, or pipe unattended. Smoke 
only in designated areas. 

Follow campus rules about 
candles, incense, bottled gas ap- 
pliances, etc. 

Too many cords plugged into 
one outlet can result in a 
dangerously overloaded circuit. 
Don't do it. 

Irons, space heaters, hot plates, 
etc., should never be left unat- 
tended. Wait for them to cool 
before storing. 

Store and dispose of rubbish 
properly so there's no chance of

Know the location of: 

Fire extinguishers— Under- 
stand the correct type and how to 
use them. 

Fire alarms— An alarm sound- 
ed immediately can protect 
property and save lives. 

Fire exits— Know where they 
are and be sure they open easily 
and are free of trash or clutter. 

If you discover a fire: 

Sound the alarm or call the fire 
department immediately. 

If there's no alarm, pound on 
doors and shout on your way out. 

Leave the building immediate- 
ly, and direct the fire department 
to the fire. 

Never enter a burning 

If you're inside: 

• Use the fire exits. Never use 
an elevator. 

• Crawl to stay beneath smoke 
if necessary. 

• Don't open" the door if the 
doorknob or door is hot. 

• If you can't leave a room, 
open windows at the top and bot- 
tom, hang something out the win- 
dow to attract attention and 
shout for help. 

• Don't jump from above the 
2nd floor. 

Most of these rules are com

Because of recent changes in 
Pennsylvania regarding the civil 
liability of persons furnishing 
alcohol to anyone under the age 
of 21, the University has made 
two additions to its alcohol 
policy. The complete policy is 
j printed below, with the additions 
boldfaced, in order to adequately 
inform all students of the alcohol 
policy. Students who attended 
the Alcohol Liabilities Workshop 
on Nov. 1 6 are aware of the court 
decision that leads to the changes 
. in policy. Feel free to call the Stu- 
*aent Life office if you have 
further questions. 

Alcoholic Beverages 
All persons, while in the Com- 

# monwealth of Pennsylvania are 
subject to the Pennsylvania Li- 
quor Code and the Crimes Code. 

Pennsylvania law provides that 
any person less than 21 years of 
age who attempts to purchase, 
purchases, possesses, consumes, 
or transports any alcoholic 
beverages within Pennsylvania 
and any person 2 1 years of age or 
over who sells or gives any 
alcoholic beverages to any person 
under 21 years of age in Penn „ 
sylvania is subject to fine or im- 
prisonment or both. 

• In other words, the law pro- 
hibits the selling or giving of 
alcoholic beverages of any kind 
to persons under 21 years of age 
(minors) by an agency or any per- 
son. It is unlawful to purchase 
alcoholic beverages from other 

t than a state store or licensed 
source. It is also unlawful to 
misrepresent one's age to obtain 

alcoholic beverages or to 
transport liquor which was not 
purchased according to Penn- 
sylvania Law. 

It is illegal for minors to at- 
tempt to purchase, to consume, 
possess or transport alcohol, li- 
quor, or malt or brewed 

Section 491 of the Liquor Code 
states in part, "It shall be 
unlawful for any person, by 
himself or by an employee or 
agent, to expose or keep for sale, 
or directly or indirectly, or upon 
pretense or upon any device, to 
sell or offer to sell any liquor 
within this Commonwealth, ex- 
cept in accordance with the pro- 
visions of this Act and the regula- 
tions of the Liquor Control 

If alcoholic beverages are fur- 
nished in conjunction with any 
other service or product, for a 
consideration, a sale of the liquor 
or beer has been consumated. If 
an unlicensed sale is made, 
whether direct or constructive as 
described above, the Penn- 
sylvania Liquor Control Board 
officers, or any other police of- 
ficers, may arrest the seller(s) and 
in addition to confiscating the 
alcoholic beverages may also 
seize any vehicle or equipment 
used in the illegal activity. This 
restriction applies regardless of 
the age of the buyer and/or the 

In addition, by Ordinance, 
Selinsgrove Borough forbids a 
minor to have in his possession or 
under his control any malt or 
brewed beverage, liquor, wine or 
any other alcoholic beverage, 
subject to fine or imprisonment. 
The University expects the 
students to know and obey these 
laws and provisions and will not 
condone violation of them nor 

imped legitimate efforts of the 
state or borough to enforce them. 
Under the existing law of the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 
organizations and/or individuals 
who furnish intoxicants to per- 
sons under 21 years of age can be 
held civilly liable for any property 
damages, bodily injury or death 
caused by the intoxication of such 
underage person. In addition, a 
licensed organization furnishing 
intoxicants to a visibly intox- 
icated person or any person 
under 21 years of age can be civil- 
ly liable for any property 
damaged, bodily injuries or death 
caused by the intoxication of such 
person. The University, however, 
under the aforesaid existing law, 
assumes no such civil liability. 


1. The University, by this 
policy, assumes no responsibility 
for any student with respect to 
his use or non-use of alcoholic 
beverages, or for the results or 
consequences of his conduct 
therewith or therefrom, and it 
hereby disclaims such respon- 
sibility. The purpose of this policy 
is simply to recognize the existing 
law in the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania and the Borough of 
Selinsgrove with respect to its 

2. The University will not 
police offcampus activities with 
respect to the use, etc. of 
alcoholic beverages by students. 
Campus organizations who spon- 
sor off-campus events at which 
alcoholic beverages are furnished 
and/or available, are urged to pro- 
vide alternate transportation for 
persons who have been drinking. 

3. Persons who are 21 or older 
may consume alcoholic beverages 
in the privacy of their own room. 

New Furniture Ordered 

f A new look will be coming to 
the cafeteria, hopefully before 
students return to begin the sec- 
ond semester. New tables and 
chairs have been ordered and 
should be arriving sometime by 
the middle of January. 
The 72" round tables that are 

f currently in the dining room will 
stay, and will be implemented by 
12 60" round tables. Also ordered 
were 36"x96" rectangular tables 
which will seat 8 comfortably, or 
as many as 10. Rectangular 
tables were already ordered 

« during the late summer, and are 
already in use. The new tables 
have an almond formica top, 
chrome legs, and black vinyl 
edging. More tables were ordered 
than were needed, so not all of 

them will be used. 

Chairs were also ordered, and a 
sample chair can be viewed in the 
dining room near the doors. They 
are curvatured stacking chairs, 
with brushed chrome frames and 
maroon vinyl seats and back, 
which are also padded. The backs 
of these chairs were chosen to be 
slightly curved for better sitting 

This new furniture was decided 
on by a variety of individuals and 
committees. An interior designer, 
who is an alumnus of SU, an 
architect, and the facilities design 
organization of ARA are the 
"outside" forces which helped 
decide. From SU, President Cun- 
ningham and his senior staff 

members and the Student 
Government food committee 
were consulted to help decide. 
Also, students were asked their 
opinion at various times during 
lunch and dinner. 

Other renovations for the 
dining room have not been de- 
cided on yet; the chair and table 
purchase is the only formal deci- 
sion that has been made. 
However, it was done in anticipa- 
tion of further changes in the 
dining hall. The new purchases 
will surely enhance the dining 
hall's appearance, and provide 
greater flexibility with furniture 

4. Any student who appears at 
a University function or on cam- 
pus in an intoxicated condition or 
creates a disturbance by reason of 
excessive drinking, e.g. behavior 
which disturbs others, or causes 
embarrassment, personal injury, 
or property damage, or attempts 
to force or induce a student to 
drink against his expressed desire, 
or breaches or attempts to breach 
or induce of the Laws of the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 
or the ordinances of the Borough 
of Selinsgrove in regard to 
alcoholic beverages, will be sub- 
ject to disciplinary action. 

5. Subject to change or revoca- 
tion at the discretion of the 
University, consumption of 
alcoholic beverages by persons 21 
or olders is permitted only in 
residential facilities at the types 
of events decribed below: 

a. Closed Events: Residents 
within a specific community (i.e. 
fraternities, halls, houses) and 
limited invited guests in a public 

area. The event must be 
registered with the Assistant 
Dean of Students/Director of 
Residence Life and the Head 

b. Private Events: specific 
guests of a limited number con- 
tained in one private room. 
Notice of the event must be given 
to the Head Resident. 

6. Closed and private events 
are subject to other University 
regulations such as disturbing the 
peace and Fire and Safety Codes. 
Host(s) of such events are respon- 
sible for the actions and safety of 
their guests and are urged to 
become aware of the liabilities 
assumed in serving and providing 
alcohol to others. Closed and 
private events may only be 
scheduled on Friday and Satur- 
day evenings, except under 
special circumstances. They may 
not be held during reading days 
and final examination periods. 
Only persons 21 or older may

Best in Pa. 

Kelly Hayner 

Susquehanna University 
ranked top in small, comprehen- 
sive colleges in PA. According to 
the Nov. 25 edition of U.S. News 
and World Report, which con- 
ducted a poll among 1,318 
presidents of four-year colleges 
and universities similar in size 
and academic offerings, colleges 
were selected on the basis of their 
quality of teaching, atmosphere 
for learning, strength of cur- 
riculum, and the relationship be- 
tween faculty and students. 
"America's undergraduate 
schools with the best reputations 
among college presidents are 
those that insist their students be 
educated broadly," quote the 
magazine. The presidents 
surveyed, however, cautioned 
that these top colleges are not 
necessarily the best for every stu- 

Susquehanna is the only PA 
college to be included in "the na- 
tion's pacesetters" in the "smaller 
comprehensive institutions." 
Students at SU are insisted to 
take a foreign language, and 
writing and computer literacy are 
emphasized. A career develop- 
ment course is a pioneering seg- 
ment of the core sequence. 

Dr. Kamber, Acting Vice- 
President for Academic Affairs, 
said, "our purpose is to prepare 
our students for a successful life 
and livelihood after graduation." 

In addition, the magazine 
report stated that "the impor 
tance given to such curricula by 
the nation's leading educators 

takes on special significance in a 
year in which many colleges have 
been criticized for letting students 
major in job-related disciplines 
without requiring meaningful ex- 
posure to the arts and sciences." 
SU students can be proud of 
this commendation. Reports on 
U.S. News and World Report's 
study have been noted by 
numerous national and local 
media sources. It is hoped that 
the positive attention will help in- 
crease enrollment at SU.

International Studies Fair 

Our Corner . 

This week features dual topics. 
Both raise some feelings of 
outrage and anger, at least they 
do in me. The first is an extension 
of the night testing problem — 
night class. The other is a recent 
fine given for "an incident which 
requires disciplinary action," as 
the form letter states. 

The obvious question is, why? 
Aren't 14 weeks of classes 
enough to cover the material? If 
not, the program should be 
changed. There is no excuse for 
requiring students to attend 
evening classes and there are too 
many possible problems. I won't 
recap what the Committee 
Against Night Testing pointed 
out, but most of their points are 
valid here. 1 don't have the class 
and I don't know all the reasons 
behind the situation. It seems to 
me, though, that this is asking for 
studies above and beyond the 

The second topic borders on 
absurdity. The charge for a 
broken toilet paper holder is $68. 
No misprint folks — $68! For a 
toilet paper holder. One of those 
metal pieces of junk that hangs 
on the wall with a roll of number 
16 sandpaper on it. It couldn't 
cost more than $10, which leaves 
^58 bucks for what? Installation? 
What's the Green Army for if 
they get paid extra for doing their 
job. This guy offered to put it up 
himself, but Gary Smith told him 
the Army must do it. 

It was the same last year. They 
posted fines at the end of the 
term and they were outrageous. 
It would be nice to know where 
this money is going. We have a 

$100 damage deposit, but that 
isn't used. Smith prefers that the 
bill is paid out of the Rocket. 

The student is not informed of 
what the charges are for. No 
itemized list is provided. Don't 
the students have a right to know 
where their money is going? I 
think a better system should be 

worked out. 

As if there wasn't enough of an 
uproar over the recent night tests 
in the accounting classes, now we 
have night classes. I guess it had 
to happen. Dr. Sellekaerts' 
macroeconomics class met last 
Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8. 
It will meet again next Wednes- 
day. Information from these 
classes will appear on the final. 

That's all for this week. Enjoy 
the weekend and get ready for 
the last week. Finally.

Have you ever considered 
studying abroad for a semester or 
for a year? Do you know about 
the opportunities for summer 
work experience abroad? Are you 
familiar with Susquehanna's 
overseas internship positions with 
foreign companies? 

You'll have the opportunity to 
get answers to these and lots 
more questions about overseas 
experiences at an International 
Studies Fair which will be held on 
Wednesday, Dec. 11 in the 
private diing rooms of the 
Campus Center from 7 to 8 p.m. 
All students are invited. 

Students should not be put off 
by doubts that "I can't fit study 
abroad into my schedule," or "I 
haven't mastered a foreign 
language," or "I can't afford it." 
Some programs cost no more 
than if you stayed on the SU 
campus. And at least one, the 
Denmark International Semester, 
costs less than total fees at SU in- 
cluding round-trip airfare! Some 
programs, even on the European 
continent, are offered entirely in 
English and do not require ad- 
vance knowledge of another 
language. And as for the matter 
of "fitting" an overseas ex- 
perience into your four-year 
undergraduate education, this 
can usually be done quite easily 
by careful early planning. 

The study possibilities which 
Susquehanna offers range from

rooms and activities are subject 
to stipulations outlined in the 
Seibert room and board contract 

b. All Sorority Houses: 
Limited alcohol consumption is 
permitted only in private rooms 
in accordance with National 
Sorority policies.

are not permitted in buildings 
where the majority of residents 
are freshmen and sophomores.

9. Beverages containing grain 
•alcohol are not permitted on cam- 
pus. . 

10. In accordance with State 
Law, no money may be charged 
for any event at which alcoholic 
beverages will be served. 

11. Consumption or possession 
of alcoholic beverages in other 
than residential areas as described 
above without special permission 
of the Dean of Students is a viola- 
tion of this policy and is grounds 
for University disciplinary action.

year at the University of Lan- 
caster in England) to the exotic 
(e.g. a semester in Singapore or 
Japan or Liberia). There are 
possibilities of internships in Ger- 
many for students who can com- 
bine German language skills with 
course work in business or social 
work. There is an English 
language internship at United 
Nations offices in Vienna 
through IES (Institute of Euro- 
pean Studies). The Church's role 
in global issues like racism, pover- 
ty, refugee aid, and economic 
development can be studied in 
Geneva during the summer. 
Another summer opportunity in 
English is available in the Sus- 
quehanna at Oxford Program in 
which students can earn up to 12 
credits — 8 at Oxford in July 
-August and 4 in June in a 
London-based mini-term course 
that focuses on the study of 
British Theatre. Finally, through 
CIEE in New York, students get 
assistance in locating summer 
work opportunities in Britain, 
Ireland, Germany, France, New 
Zealand, and Costa Rica. 

Your chance to learn just how 
numerous and extensive the op- 
portunities are for overseas ex- 
periences which normally will 
earn academic credit for you is 
yours on Wednesday evening 
next week. Students who have 
already participated in study or 
work abroad programs will be 
there to share their experiences 
with you. Faculty members re- 
sponsible for administering or 

handling applications for several 
study abroad programs will be 
present to answer questions. 

All students, regardless of ma- 
jor, are invited to attend. 
Freshmen and sophomores are 
especially encouraged, because of 
the importance of planning well 
in advance for a study abroad ex- 
perience. December is awash in 
Christmas-related activities. But 
you'll want to use the Christmas 
break to discuss summer plans 
with your parents. Get the 
answers at the International 
Studies Fair on Wednesday 
evening, Dec. 11, 7 to 8 p.m. in 
the Campus Center private 
dining rooms. 

Editor's Note: This week's

Handel's Messiah 

In true Christmas spirit, the SU

choral-orchestral works of major 
proportion. It is under the 
direction of music director and 
conductor Cyril M. Stretansky. 

The Susquehanna University 
Concert Choir, comprising 65 
choral musicians, annually

Grapplers Nab Mules 

The 1985-86 season opened 
beautifully for the Susquehanna 
grapplers, as they annihilated 
Muhlenberg College 43-9, in O. 
W. Houts Gymnasium. The 
match was highlighted by 4 falls 
by the Crusaders, 3 of them by 
freshmen. Recapping the match, 
freshman Carl Spector opened 
the Crusader scoring receiving a 
forfeit. Then, at 126 lbs., Brian 
Goebel dropped Muhlenberg's 
Dan Manea 1:37 into the match 
to register the fall and give the 
Crusaders a 12-0 lead.

The 134 lbs. and 142 lbs. 
matches did not come quite as 
easy. At 134 lbs., Susquehanna's 
Gene Krumenacker started out 
slow but finished strong to defeat 
Marc Grossman 17-7. Then, at 
142 lbs., Susquehanna Ken Peifer 
got out to a quick lead and rode 
out to a 7-4 victory. 

Susquehanna's Chris La- 
brecque recorded the fastest fall 
of the night, at 150 lbs., when he 
decked Ken Wiesen in 1:31. At 
158 lbs., Susquehanna's freshman 
Joe Lawrence caught Bob 
Glashow and pinned him 2:59 in- 
to the match. This made the score 
31-0, and the rout was on. 

After Ken Wedholm lost by 
•fall, Paul Lesica locked up with 
Muhlenberg's Al Flower in a 
barn-burner. Flower got the up- 
per hand, defeating Lesica 14-10, 
and cut the margin to 31-9. That 
was all Muhlenberg could 
muster, as the Crusaders rounded 
out the scoring. Steve Walter 
received a forfeit at 190 lbs. and 
freshman Phil Walker wore out 
Muhlenberg's Doug Schildhaus, 
registering the fall at 5:30. 

The Crusaders are back in 
action this weekend at the 
Lebanon Valley Tournament. 
The tournament lasts today and 
tomorrow, as the Crusaders will 
face several other schools at 
Lebanon Valley College.

Chaplain's Corner — 

Peter Drucker said it — and give him due and proper credit 
for having said it this way — and so well: 

"Time is not the problem. It's how we use it 
that counts." 

Good thinking, Peter Drucker! You've triggered a thought 
that I must pursue. As an example — long before you came up 
with your assessment, the writers of Biblical truth struck that 
note. The basic theme leads one to believe that time either "runs 
out" or "runs in to" — and there you have it: unrepeatable 
moments. What to do with them — ? In the calendar for the 
church year, the Advent season comes up with something more 
than a gentle hint — . How about showing up this Sunday at 
eleven in Weber Chapel Auditorium. Let's see if together we 
can't make an hour really count! I dare you — .

Lady Cagers Open Victorious 

The Lady Crusaders opened 
their 1985-86 basketball season in 
a fury with two quick victories 
over Kings College and Ly- 
coming College respectively. In 
the first win, the Lady Crusaders 
got a fine second half perfor- 
mance from Sandy Bartle to pull 

away from a stingy Kings squad. 
In the first half, Susquehanna 
relied on the inside game of 
center Robena Reaid and the 
constant pressure from guard 

Stacey Grady who scored 8 on 7 
points respectively. In the second 
half, Bartle's scoring stole the 
show. Sandy's inside and outside 
moves combined with freshman 

center Nancy Stepsus' in- 
timidating inside play, carried the 
Lady Crusaders to the final 68-50 
margin. Bartle's second half per- 
formance totalled 12 points and 
Stepsus ended the game with 8 re- 
bounds and 5 of the team's 7 
blocked shots. Reaid added 1 1 re- 

Looking for win number two, 
the Lady Crusaders hosted 
Lycoming College. As expected 
Bartle rose to the occassion tally- 
ing 31 points in the rout, 85-41. 
Although the score reflects a 
total blowout, the game was 
much closer than was expected. 
At halftime the Lady Crusaders 
were leading 42-27 and Lycoming 
was getting confidence. In the 
second half, the Susquehanna 

press was too much for Lycoming 
and the Lady Crusaders were on 
their way to a 2-0 slate. What 
proved to be the difference was 
Bartle and the SU defense, the 
latter of which racked up 23 
steals. Bartle's final stats on the 
game were 31 points, 9 rebounds, 
6 steals and 4 assists. Roberta 
Reaid and Nancy Stepsus com- 
bined to dominate the boards 
grabbing 12 and 7 rebounds 
respectively. Reaid and Stacy 
Grady both hit double figures 
with 12 and 1 1 points respective- 
ly. Beth Hoyle also contribute 
considerably accounting for 26 
points, scoring 8 points and 
dishing out 9 assists.

SU Quintet Opens Hoop Season 

The Susquehanna University 
Crusaders basketball team started 
out the 1985-86 hoop season by 
winning their opening game of 
the season against Middle At- 
lantic Conference rival Lycoming 
7 1 -64, before dropping two tough 
contests to Bucknell and 

In the opener, the Crusaders 
battled back from a nine point 
halftime deficit, behind the play 
of captain Don P. Hanium, who 
ripped the nets for 33 points, 
while senior Mike Gress added 1 3 
points, as the Crusaders coasted 
past the Warriors. 

In the following game against 
powerful Division I-AA 
Bucknell, the Crusaders totally 
controlled the first half of the 

game, running out to a 45-32 
halftime lead, before seeing the 

Bisons storm back to win 98-82. 
The Crusaders were again led by 
Harnum, a senior from Selins- 
grove, PA, who lit up the 
scoreboard for another 33 points. 

Gress and Bruce Merklinger 
chipped in with 22 and 1 1 points 
respectively to aid the Crusader 

The Crusaders then traveled to 
Bloomsburg to face the Division 
II Huskies, but after being tied at 
30-30 late in the first half, 

Bloomsburg scored the final four 
points of the first half and the 
first four points of the second 
half, to break the game open, as 

they went on to win 93-65. 
Harnum again was the high 
scorer for the Crusaders as the 
senior guard contributed 26 

points, while Gress added 15 
points and Merklinger 13 points 
for the Crusaders. 

Susquehanna will be at home 
twice this week against Middle 
Atlantic Conference, Northwest 
League opponents. Saturday, the 
Crusaders will host Eliza- 

bethtown for a 3 p.m. game and 
Albright will visit Houts Gym-

Theft Prevention During Breaks 

U.CC.C JS ! 

When you're home enjoying 
your Christmas break, make sure 
you have taken the time to secure 
the valuables that you have left 
in your room at school. While 
this is the season of cheer and 
good will toward men, it is also 
the time of year when crime rates 
soar. During the last break, we on 
the Security staff noticed many 
rooms that had not been secured 
properly against theft. It is for 
this reason we ask you to take the 
following steps to minimize your 
chances of loss while at the same 
time making it easier to protect 
your property. 

Your chances of loss will be 
lessened if you take the following 

1) keep all valuables out of 

2) close your curtains and 

3) secure your windows and 

If you don't take your TV and 
stereo home with you, it is best to 
put them on a closet or cover 
them with something so they can- 
not be seen. Close your curtains 
so no one can see inside. If your 
valuables can be seen, that is an 
invitation for someone to steal 
them. If you are worried about 

your plants, they can usually be 
left in a laundry room or lounge. 
Many dorms have these places 
for plants • and sometimes the 
cleaning ladies will water them 
over the break. However, the life 
of a $12 plant is not equal to the 
loss of a $700 stereo system. 

Don't be a victim this holiday. 
Although theft during the breaks 
is rare here at SU, it has hap- 
pened, and it happens mostly 
over the breaks. Secure your 
room against theft, have a Merry 
Christmas and a Happy New

Happy 106th, 

Ray E. Tressler 

All his teachers and old friends 
are dead. The brand-new $375 
Ford he bought in 1918 is long 
gone.. .and worse yet, he only 
paid $100 a semester back when 
he went to Susquehanna! Yes, 
SU would like to wish a very hap- 
py 106th birthday to Ray E. 
Tressler, the last surviving 
member of the Class of 1 904, and 
SU's oldest alumnus. 

Tressler was born in 1879 in 
Red Cross, Pa. He lived most of 
his life in Dalmatia, Pa., 
however, where he was a farmer, 
teacher, banker, and Dalmatia's 
first fire chief. He has one son, 
Allen C. Tressler, who also 
graduated from SU, in 1929. A 
retired chemist, he lives in 

Tressler graduated as a 
business major from Susquehan- 
na, attending school in the spring 
term and teaching in the winter. 
He was a teacher and the tax col- 
lector of Dalmatia in 1912, when 
he applied for the job of cashier 

at the new Farmers State Bank of 
Dalmatia. The bank organizers 
were impressed with his ability to 
speak both fluent English and 
Pennsylvania Dutch, a common 
language of the time. 

He was the bank cashier from 
the bank's opening, on Aug. 8, 
1912 until 1956, when he was 
elected president, a position he 
held until 1971 when the bank 
merged with a bank in 
Millersburg to become Mid Penn 
Bank. He was then taken in as 
vice-president and member of the 
board until he retired shortly 
after his 100th birthday. 

Tressler remembers what SU 
was like when he attended. Sus- 
quehanna in 1904 consisted of 
three buildings and about 100 
students. Mr. Tressler alluded 
that there were fraternities on 
campus, but he was never around 
on Saturday nights to see what 
they were like. Every weekend he 
took the trolley across the river to 
Sunbury and caught a train home 
to Dalmatia to help out on a 

SU to Phone Home 

We've seen the wires hanging 
from the ceiling, the cardboard 
boxes on the floor, and even had 
a hole drilled in our walls. Yes, 
the "telephone man" has arrived, 
and telephones for every room on 

campus are well on their way to 
becoming reality. But however 
well the installment process is go- 
ing, students should be aware of 
the limitations that exist at the 
present time. 

A limit of 220-240 phone con- 
nections will be releaseed for stu- 
dent subscription and use until 
the summer. This limitation is 
due to the lack of sufficient direct 
in dial (DID) numbers available 
at the local Continental 
telephone office. There will be no 

preference as to which 220 
students will receive the first 
nhone connections; it will be a 
first-come first-serve sign up. 
AT&T will" have people on 

campus issuing phone subscrip- 
tions on registration day, Jan. 19, 
or during the first day of classes. 
Everyone who wishes to will be 
able to subscribe to the phone ser- 
vice by next September. 

The types of calls that can be 
made on the new telephones are 
also limited. On-campus and local 
calls may be made at no cost. To 
make long distance calls, 
however, a long distance access 
code (most likely the number 8) 

must be dialed. This will connect 
you with an operator who will 
then allow you to make a collect 
or credit card call. Students 
should take note, however, that 
no third party calling will be 

Students will be forced to make 
collect or credit card calls, instead 
of being billed, until next 
September. After this time, it is 
hoped to have a resale billing 
system developed. This is a 
system which will allow students 
to direct dial long distance and 
the University will bill the stu- 
dent for the call. 

According to Frank Richards, 
coordinator of the new telephone 
system, AT&T states that the 
following guidelines must be used 
for purchasing phone sets that 
will operate on the campus 

farm. He did enjoy going to the 
SU ball games when he was here. 
The last time Tressler visited SU 
was about two years ago, at a 
birthday party here at the school. 
Tressler was married twice, 
and remembers taking his first 
wife out for horse and buggy 
rides for their dates. He enjoyed 
fishing, and going to apple- 
peeling and card parties where 
they would "play games until 
midnight sometimes." 

Tressler admits that he never 
thought he'd live to be 50, let 
alone 106. He's been in the 
hospital since Feb. 2, 1985, when 
he fell out of bed after a dream 
and broke his hip. He commented 
that he feels fine, but has not 
been able to walk since the acci- 

"1 lived an ordinary life," 
Tressler says. He gave up 
driving at age 102 when his vi- 
sion became too poor to pass the 
test. He never had a serious acci- 
dent in his 63 years behind the 
wheel. He does remember a few 

1 . The phone must conform to 
Part 68 of FCC rules for terminal 
connections to the public net- 
work. A stamp or sticker stating 
conformance can be found on the 
base plate of the phone. 

2. The Ringer Equivalence 
Number (REN) must be 1.0 or 
less, with an A or B suffix, i.e. 
1.0 A or 1.0B. The REN is found 
on the phone base plate, con- 
tainer box, or in the user instruc- 

3. The phone must be 
Touchtone to dial off-campus. Be 
very careful that the phone is 
pure touchtone and generates a 
touchtone pulse. Many of the low 
cost button phones actually are 
rotary type phones that generate 
a rotary pulse rather than a 
touchtone pulse. These rotary 
pulse phones will work for on- 
campus calls but will not work 
for making local off-campus or 
long distance calls. 

4. AT&T experience says that 
phones with the disconnecting 
device on the handle cause dif- 
ficulty. Inadvertant depression 
can cause accidental discon- 
nection during conversations. 

Kelly Hayner 

close calls, such as almost being 
hit by a train when he crossed in 
front of it on the tracks: "I felt 
the heat of the engine." 

What is history to us is just a 
memory to Tressler. He 
remembers the Johnstown Flood 
in 1889 well. The Susquehanna 
River was so high and full of logs 
that "you could walk across the 
river on logs." He also recalls the 
state of his bank during the Great 
Depression, noting that it was 
kept open except for when 
Roosevelt shut down all banks 
for about a week for a "holiday." 

Tressler also had a comment 
about President Reagan. 
Although an avid democrat, he 
admitted that he has always 
voted for Reagan. "1 like him for 
President," stated Tressler, and "I 
think he's doing the right thing." 

A birthday celebration in 
Tressler's honor was held today 
in the convalescent center of Sun- 
bury Community Hospital, 
where Tressler now resides. 


At its recent annual meeting, 
the Pennsylvania Humanities 
Council elected Richard Kamber. 
Dean of the School of Fine Arts 
and Communications, Associate 
Professor of Philosophy, and Co- 
founder and Executive Director 
of the SU Film Institute, to serve 
as Vice Chairman. Dr. Kamber 
has served on the Council for the 
past two years. 

The Pennsylvania Humanities 
Council has been working for the 
past thirteen years with scholars 
and non-profit organizations to 
foster public understanding of the 
humanities. It grants funds from 
the national Endowment for the 
Humanities to non-profit groups 
sponsoring public humanities 
programs. It also develops and 
conducts programs with funds 
from private sources. Among 
these programs are the 1985 
series of programs on Penn 
sylvania Writers and reading and 
discussion groups on the U.S. 
Constitution. The Council is 
made up of 28 volunteer 
members who reflect Penn

NBC Correspondent 

A few weeks ago, David 
Hazinski, a correspondent for 
NBC News, visited SU. Hazinski 
spoke to some business classes 
and had lunch with communica- 
tion students, faculty, and others. 
He covers "hard news," stories 
such as plane crashes, hurricanes, 
and the like. In the business, he is 
known as a "fireman." 

Hazinski describes his life as a 
correspondent as often hectic. He 
spends much of his time travel- 
ing. He knows the basics of 
several languages but occasional- 
ly forgets which to use because of 
the constant travel. He says that 
working in Europe is much like 
working in the States, but that 
the Third World is a world of its 

With his base in Atlanta, 
Hazinski is responsible for stories 
in his area. Often, however, he is 
called away to do foreign or 
special assignments. Networks 
have bases in major cities across 
the US to reduce travel time. 
Atlanta is the heart of the South 
and is also the site of the Center 
of Disease Control. 

Stories are assigned to Hazin- 
ski from several sources. Some 
come from the central offices in 
New York on specific topics that 

producers feel he covers well. 
Others are gathered by the Atlan 
ta base themselves by looking 
through newspapers, radios, news 
wires, and other local sources. 
Also, the local area will ask to 
have a story covered occasional- 
ly. Finally, there are some stories 
that have to be covered, such as 

His favorite story that he 
covered was the installation of 
Pope John Paul II. The pagentry, 
the unusualness of the event, and 
both being Polish, plus the fact 
that it was a moment in history to 
experience made his choice easy. 
His opportunity to attend such 
events is a main reason why he 
likes being in the business. His 
least favorite stories are inter 
views with families that have lost 
relatives in disasters. He wishes 
he did not have to do such stories. 

A story that Hazinski covers 
may require as much as 200 
minutes of tape. The actual air 
time is about 2 minutes. He says 
that a key to journalism is the col- 
lection and limiting of the infor 
mation. The goal is clarity and 
importance without worrying 
about evaluation of the topic. 
That is for the viewer to decide.

Concerned Student Replies 

Dear Editor, 

Because of certain events 
which have occurred this year, 1 
feel compelled to write this letter 
of comment and protest. There 
are several subjects 1 wish to 
address. Some of the practices 1 
will object to are fairly limited in 
scope now, but the campus com- 
munity should be concerned 
because of the precedent set. 

Registration for the semester is 
usually an innocuous event. 
However, next semester's 
registration takes place on Sun- 
day. So far as I know, this is a 
major departure from past prac- 
tice. 1 resent the fact that 1 am 
forced to attend this process or be 
fined. As a Christian, I regard 
Sundav as a time of rest and a 
day for religious observences. I 
had thought that Susquehanna 
University would respect that 
principle, which 1 regard as very 
close to a right, because Sus- 
quehanna is associated with the 
Lutheran Church. Since those 
students who live a good distance 

Our Corner 

away will probably have to leave 
in the morning, they will not 
have the opportunity to attend 
church services. The manner in 
which we registered for first 
semester is perfectly acceptable, 
whereby residence halls opened 
Friday, registration was held 
Saturday, and classes began Mon- 

On a light note, I was amused 
by all the response to the editor's 
letter on campus drinking. As 
Shakespeare so aptly had the 
Queen remark, "The Lady doth 
protest too much, methinks" 
(Hamlet, Act HI, Sc. II). It is fair- 
ly naive to insist that there is no 
alcohol problem on campus. Just 
from personal observation, I 
would say that 90% of the stu- 
dent body drinks on a regular 
weekly basis and at least 25% 
have serious alcoholic problems. 
The blame for this should not be 
laid primarily or even largely on 
the fraternities. It is an attitude 
held by the students that is the 
cause of this problem. On the 

Extra, Extra. At last, the war 
has been won, save the final bat- 
tle. V-S Day (victory over the 
semester) is almost upon us. 
While some of our comrades 
have fallen, most of us have made 
it through to fight again. 

This being the final issue of the 
term (that muffled cheer you hear 
comes from the rowdy band we 
refer to as the staff), it is an ap- 

propriate time to pass around 
some thanks. We all appreciated 
the notes sent us by faculty and 
administration. Special thanks to 
the Padre for his continued sup- 

Additional thanks go to all 
those who wrote, typed, and/or 
stuffed mailboxes with us. A 
special note to the small but loyal 
group that has stuck with us for

other hand, the fraternities are 
not in the vanguard of the fight 
against alcohol abuse. I also find 
it hard to believe that no one is 
ever pressured to drink at any 
fraternity, not even moderately 
expressed peer pressure. 

I also take exception to Jim 
Faust's comments to Dave Stan- 
ton's letter criticizing the work 
between Steele and Fisher. The 
students have every right to com- 
plain when a job that should be 
completed in two weeks is still 
not done after several months. 
We pay $10,000 a year so we 
should get quality service. 

By the way, does SGA do 
anything useful on campus? Does 
it influence any relevant ad- 
ministration decisions? I see and 
hear little evidence that it exists 
and past senators tell me it 
doesn't do that much. Perhaps 
SGA could put a column in the 
article-starved Crusader and tell 
the students what they discussed 
at their meetings and decisions 
that will affect the student body. 

the entire term. They don't know 
it yet, but we plan on keeping 
them locked up over break so 
they don't get away. 

Finally, thanks to Dean Ander- 
son for devoting her time for a 
weekly story-idea session. We got 
leads to several stories and were 
able to use some suggestions. 

That takes care of the arms 
and legs of The Crusader body. 
Now for the heart and other 
assorted internal organs. Last fall, 
seven of us went to volunteer to 
do the job no one else would do. 
We had virtually no experience. 
The only holdovers from the 
previous staff, Doug Alderdice 
and Kathy Schilling, provided us 
with some vital information. This 
group learned as it worked and is 
still learning. 

The tempers have flared more 
than once as these people tried to 
settle into their personal niches. 
Whether it be setting policy or 
sorting the mail, putting seven 
people with seven opinions in 
tight quarters for three months 
leads to a brawl or two. Hopeful- 
ly, we are better for it. 

This column can't end without 
mentioning our fearless (usually) 
advisor. Kathy Baker is the 
backbone of the work we do, 
with Scott Deitch picking up a 
few vertebre. Kathy has given us 
the technical skill and provided 
us with the information required 
to do the job. Week in and week 
out, she does a great job. And, as 
a result of dealing with this 
bunch, the "backbone" will be 
receiving some chiropractical 
treatment over break, c/o The 
Crusader, so she is ready to do it 
all again next term. 

So ends "Our Corner" for 
1985. Thanks for reading and, as 
the saying goes, from all of us to 
all of you, have a safe and merry 
Christmas and a happy New 
Year. See you all back here on 
Superbowl Sunday. 


Finally, I'd like to discuss the 
semester system. I was a bit con- 
cerned about it last year but 
resolved to approach it with an 
open mind. Well, after nearly a 
semester, I think I can safely con- 
clude that the semester system is 
an atrocity. I find that the 
courses are awkward. A seven 
week course I took seemed to be a 
ten week course stuffed into 
seven weeks. 1 thought that ten 
weeks of material was supposed 
to be spread out over fourteen 
weeks. Instead I see professors 
trying to stuff more material into 
the same time. What this means 
is that 1 devote less time to each 
subject, learning less. If the stu- 
dent has term papers, they all 
come due about the same time, 
except that now there are more of 
them. Computer Science majors 
must now take several program- 
ming courses at a time, basically 
frying their brains. Tests tend to 
come at about the same time in 
all classes. A students tends to 
tire of the same subject after 
time. The ten week terms tended 
to minimize that. In fact, I can 
find nothing beneficial to the 
semester system. The term 
system allowed intensive study of 
a few subjects so that a student 
learned those subjects 
thoroughly. I guess Susquehanna 
is more concerned with being 
"competitive" or similar to other 
colleges. It is unfortunate that 
similarity is chosen over quality 

As if this was not bad enough, 
certain professors are springing 
night tests and night classes on 
unsuspecting students. This tends 
to ruin the study habits of 
students, and lower their grades 
even further. It would be fair if 
students were warned about 
these practices before they 
register, so they could avoid the 
courses. Students also participate 
in campus activities in the 
evening. If students wanted to go 
to class in the evening, they 
would take night classes. 

Worse still, certain business 
professors berated their classes 
about the letter fron CANT. This 
is the abhorrent practice of 
tyrants and it is against 
fundamental principles of our 
state and federal government. I 
believe it is written that; 

Congress shall make no law 
respective an establishment of 
religion, or prohibiting the free 
exercise thereof; or abridging the 
freedom of speech, or of the 

press; or the right of the people 
peaceably to assemble, and to 
petition the Government for a 
redress of grievances. (United 
States Constitution, Amendment 


1 would like to think that such a 
lofty principle could be extended 
to all institutions. Certain pro- 
fessors complain that their class 
time has been cut. For instance, 
Financial Accounting went from 
70 to 45.5 hours. However, I 
understand the business depart- 
ment was one of the biggest pro- 
ponents of the semester system. 
Perhaps they should have 
thought of these problems 
beforehand. Professors should 
confine themselves to their time 
limits, and accept the limitations 
of the new system, instead of 
overburdening the students. By 
the way, I am not a business stu- 
dent, so yelling at business classes 
will not accomplish anything. 

So what is the result of this 
burdening? A recent letter sent to 
accounting course students from 
Chairman Edward Schwan reads 
as follows; 

The accounting faculty are 
worried about students' perfor- 
mances in Financial Accounting 
this fall. I know we have an 
above average faculty. Your SAT 
scores tell us that you are an 
above average student body. But 
the results of Financial Account- 
ing tests are well below average. 
Why is that? 

Good question. Chairman 
Schwan's answer is that the 
students are not doing their 
homework. That's right, every 
student! Even the students who 
previously got A's. It could not be 
the fault of the professors and the 
manner in which they teach the 
course, could it? Of course not, 
they are infallible. Chairman. 
Schwan thinks that 8 hours 
should be spent studying for a 4 
hour course per week. That 
seems to work out to at least 48 
hours per week of class and study 
time for the average student with 
4 courses. All that, and we can 
have a social life too. 

Well, in this rather lengthy let- 
ter I have gotten gripes out of my 
system that have been building 
up since the beginning of the 
semester. I appreciate your pa- 
tience and would like to see some 
response. Happy Holidays.

semester break Friday, Dec. 20, 
at 6 p.m. Students must vacate 
their rooms by this time. The 
halls will reopen on Saturday, 
Jan. 18, at 2 p.m. The date of 
opening has been changed since 
class registration will begin at

at 7 p.m., as was previously 

Students leaving school, going 
abroad, or changing rooms must 
remove all their belongings prior 
to beginning their vacations. 
These students should schedule a 
time to review their room inven- 
tory form before leaving to avoid 
unwarrented damage charges. 
Room keys must be returned to 
the Residence Life Office for a 
$2.00 refund of the deposit.

The Phenolumn 

by Doug Chamberlin 

XVI Leon Nemoy Presents: 

"I'm bored with my major. All 
of the courses in my concentra- 
tion hold no excitement for me. I 
don't want to be an ethno- 
musicologist when 1 "grow up" 
anymore, but I'm clueless as to 
what major 1 should switch to..." 

"1 met this cute girl yesterday 
who sat next to me in my Intro to 
Banana Peeling class, but I know 
nothing about her at all and 1 
can't tell if 1 should try to talk to 
her. 1 think she's appealing, but 
my attempts have been fruitless. 
What should 1 do?" 

Good evening, I'm Leon 
Nemoy. These problems plague 
thousands of students across the 
world today in schools from 
Portland to Peking. Yet, often 
the answer to knowing something 
about ourselves or others is writ- 
ten right on our open notebooks. 

We are talking about the 
phenomenon of doodles. 

Learning more about people in- 
volves communication, which, in 
turn involves reading certain 
communicative signs. Most of 
these signs are consciously 
presented in the ways we want, 
but some, like body language, 
tones of voice, or subconscious 
doodling sneak out from directly 
inside of us while we aren't look- 
ing. Since they probably tell us 
the most about ourselves and 
each other, they are the signs to 
watch. Unfortunately, tones of 
voice and body language are here 
now and gone in an instant, so we 
are usually oblivious to their 
message. But doodles are forever! 

Let us, therefore, explore the 
depths of sillyness to which we 
can venture as we go "In Search 
of Doodles." 

(Insert your own theme music 

Your own personalized 
doodles on any given notebook 
can give you a rough picture of 
what type of person you are, and 
therefore, what type of major 
stereotype you fit into. Please 
keep in mind that if your draw- 
ings match up in style witii a cer- 
tain major, this does not mean 
that you are obligated to switch 
to that major. All that doodles 
sometimes suggest is which type 
of major's "personality" you fit 
into, not necessarily what major 
you work well with. 

For instance, if your scrib- 
blings show signs of 
outrageousness, exaggerating or 
distorting otherwise normal 
drawings, then maybe you were 
meant to be an art major. People 
who make sculptures or paintings 
usually fulfill their need to take a 
mundane situation and bend it to 
their liking. (It's like viewing the 
world through rose colored 
glasses while making a little 
money.) Therefore, if you find 
yourself creating drawings of 
bent heads or elongated names 
(see figure 1) then maybe you 
should change to a major which 
allows you to come out of the 
closet and bend (clay) heads 

Perhaps your doodlings are 
mainly of complex little diagrams 
or even maps. Then a science is 
probably the major for you! This 
only applies to designs of non- 
human things like roads, graphs, 
tic-tac-toe boards or the Sus- 
quehanna University Plumbing 
System, (fig. 2a) If introverted, 
closed-in mazes are the rule for 
you, then prepare to become a 
computer nerd. On the other 
hand, drawing movement of ob- 
jects is often a sign of a concealed 
physics student crying to get out. 
(fig. 2b) 

Musicians also tend to be 
closed-in, yet emotional and ex- 
tremely intense toward their crea- 
tions. Therefore, if you find 
yourself drawing small, circular, 
complicated designs and then 
destroying them if they do not 
seem perfect to you, you have the 
makings of a musician. Classical 
musicians will normally cross out 
their work (fig. 3a) while jazz 
artists usually write a slang com- 
ment to nullify their creation's 
"coolness." (fig. 3b) Prospective 
rock musicians (fig. 3c) tend to 
violently destroy their work 
altogether (even if they like it). 

If you draw slightly different 
versions of the same silly object 
(usually a person) over and over 
until a whole page or margin is 
filled (fig. 4), then sociology may 
be in your future. Psychology 
and sociology majors seem to en- 
joy examining an entire "col- 


lection" of one specific type. 
These are the people who look 
over the whole shelf of bite-size 
fruit pies in the snack bar and 
then buy one of each to compare 
and contrast. 

The stereotypical business ma 
jor is wild, frustrated, and seems 
to want an easy life. Likewise, a 
stereotypical business major's 
doodle is hastily drawn and com 
pletely out of control, (fig. 5) 
Anarchy is the rule tor these 
designs, although the novice will 
sometimes confuse them with the 
drawings of the artist. A clear 
distinction can be made, though, 
if one watches the drawing being 
made. An art major's often takes 
a whole class period, while a 
business major's appears sudden- 
ly while the teacher is looking 

The doodles of a future 
philosopher are obvious. 
Philosophizing, which involves 
an attempt to categorize or iden- 
tify everything in life, is 
manifested through doodles by 
the labeling of even the most 
simplistic objects. This results in 
silly, but boring, doodles, (fig. 6) 
Similarly, the english major will 
usually doodle with a specific 
message in mind for his 
"readers," although it may be 
somewhat obscured by over 
creativity, (fig. 7) 

Theatre and the performing 
arts have their special doodles, 
too. These doodles are almost 
always entertaining and in de- 
mand of an audience, normally 
by use of humor or bizareness. As 
opposed to the average doodle, 
the theatre doodle involves an 
action, not just a picture of 
something stupidly sitting there. 
Performing arts doodles are 
energetic and, in many cases, 
lavish, (fig. 8) 

In closing, let us all pay close 
attention to our doodles in the 
future and read them for what 
they are. (And as for those of you 
who don't doodle at all. ..Do not 
worry, even Picasso had his dry

It's Greek to Us 


Hi sisters! That sounds good, 
eh? It was quite the weekend and 
I hope everyone has finally 
caught up on their sleep. 

Initiation and installation were 
wonderful. All the Zeta sisters 
would like to thank Sigma Kap- 
pa, Alpha Delta Pi, and Kappa 
Delta for sharing in our joy and 
offering us such beautiful gifts. 
Thank you very much. 

We'd also like to thank the 
fraternities for their support. ..Phi 
Mu Delta, for an almost initia- 
tion party (sorry about your 
sink).. .Sigma Phi Epsilon, for a 
wonderful initiation party. You 
guys were really sweet to pull 
through for us at the last minute. 
Finally, Lambda Chi Alpha, for a 
wet and wild time. 

We've got a lot of birthdays 
this month. If you see Vicki 
Halter, Wendy Jacobs, Kris 
Pocaro, or Kristen Foster, be sure 
to wish them a happy one. 

Vacation is closing in on us. 

Thank God! Good luck to 

everyone on finals. Happy 

holidays. See ya next year. 

Love in Zeta,

Well, hello there, Susquehanna 
University! And, see you later, 
Susquehanna University! 

Oh, and why are the words 
"beer" and "brew" not permitted 
in the greek columns? Are these 
two words too vulgar and evil for 
who have heard the very same 
words on T.V. 33,000 times 

Come on, people — it's time to 
deal with reality. I mean, not let- 
ting the words "beer," and 
"brew" in the school paper is 
almost as funny as the house dog 
wee-weeing on the former house 
secretary during a semi -formal! 

And don't think nobody saw 
you fall down those steps Satur- 
day night, Walser! You're busted! 

Yes, there are many fond 
memories of last Saturday's Im- 
port Party — for instance: 

1. The dedication of the new 
"Social Room" to Dr. Murray 
Hunt — You're one helluva good 
guy, Mur! 

2. Bermingham dancing with 
everybody's (and everybody's big 
brother's) date. 

3. The "Nausea Ward" of' 
"Theiss-Kolmoden General 

Basically, it was a gosh-darn, 
hootin' good weekend! But, it just 
wouldn't have been complete 
without our favorite Nazi on 
kitchen weekly. Have fun up 
there in the hood there, Singer? 
Serious special thanks go out to 
the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi for a 
nostalgic visit to a time in which 
we never lived.. ..just think — if 
we lived in the 50's, all we'd have 
to do to get ready in the morning 
is slop more grease on our heads. 
It's a gross scene when it comes 
to the pillow, though. 

While we're in the "Special 
Thanx Department," the Knights 
of Spudhood would like to thank 
Sir Russell Hoopie Lose for one 
of the most exciting weekends yet 
this years. Keep up the good 
work, dude! 

And yet another set of con- 
gratulations go out to Darren 
Pdlegrino and Cyndi Luer — 
now joined together in 

Well, that just about ties it up 
for this week's column — Merry

But before I actually blow this

distinguished and perfectly 
twisted representation of Theta 
Chi in our previous columns) and 
to Brothers Jeffrey Hymen

First this week, the Brothers 
would like to congratulate the 
Sisters of ZTA on their chapter's 
formal installation. We hope you 
girls had a good time at the house 
Sunday night and good luck in 
the future. We'd also like to con- 
gratulate the new members of 
Lambda Chi Alpha. 

Our semi-formal is tonite at St. 
Pius. We hope that everyone has 
a wonderful time and remember 
that the fun will continue at the 
house afterwards. Thanks go out 
to Father Allen who is allowing 
us the use of his hall. 

The Brothers would like to 
congratulate Tim and Kirk for 
finally graduating... The Cook 
School. Maybe now they will 
buckle down and try to graduate 
SU. Seriously, we will miss them, 
but we wish them lots of luck in 
finding prosperous jobs... We can 
always use generous alumni. 

Wednesday night's Casino 
night here at 593 went very well. 
It was nice to see many new faces 
and all who attended had a great 
time.. .win or lose. Thanks to our 
craps dealer, Chris N., two 
hundred thousand dollars was 
simply given away. Thanks to a 
lucky spin of the wheel, Eric 
turned ten dollars into an empire. 
The ugly point of the night oc- 
cured when Dickies and Herb 
held up the patrons and wagered 
all their "winnings" away. 

Eric and Craig are still a bit 
miffed at Dave... the luckiest per- 
son ever to roll dice. We were . 
both decimated by Dave's lucky 
streak.. .to the tune of boxcars all 
Friday afternoon. Friday night 
was another good time as the 
Brothers celebrated the end of 
martial law. We'd like to thank 
the sisters of Sigma Kappa who 
stopped by to help us celebrate. 
Saturday night was also a winner. 
Our wonderful little sisters threw 
a Christmas party for us. 
Together we decorated the tree 
and the house. Later we drank 
egg nog and the santas revealed 
their secrecy. Freddie and Carl 
stopped in to say Hello. Early in 
the evening our intrepid 
travellers went Chinese again, 
but Craig almost had to do 
dishes. Later in the evening the 
gang hit the Ho-Hum. What fun. 
The food was interesting and the 
service second to none. Then 
why did Cindy remain outside? 
Who knows? After returning, the 
gang separated, not to be 
reunited until the next morning. 
The moral of theory...We love 
our little sisters and never get 
caught under Jim's mistletoe. 

In closing, the Brothers would 
like to wish Dave a speedy 
recovery from his shoulder injury 
and wish everyone a very merry

This is a special column. After 
3 years of bringing you the latest 
news of what Sigma Kappa has 
been doing for the campus and 
community, and hopefully bring- 
ing you a reason to smile or to 
laugh, and even a reason to think 
a little bit, my time as "It's Greek 
To Us" writer has to be given to 
someone else to carry on. 

As a senior, and being a link in 
the Greek system for 4 years, 1 
have seen and experienced many 
good and bad points in "Greek 
Life." And through it all there is 
one thing I've found to always 
hold true: belonging to a sorority 
or fraternity is exactly what you 
make of it. It is individuals who 
make up the group and not the 
group that should make up the in- 
dividual. Wearing greek letters 
should not be for those who lack 
an identity otherwise, but being a 
part of a fraternity or sorority is a 
great way to help others better 
their lives and not just yourself. I 
truly believe that through helping 
others, in whatever way it may 
be, you help yourself become a 
better and more respected person. 
I've experienced being part of a 
group which has raised large 
sums of money for charity; I've 
seen a majority of people in this 
system make other people happy; 
I've seen people enjoy some of 
the best times through Greek life 
because they had the chance to 
do new and constructive things in 
their lives. And I've seen a very 
few Greeks sometimes hurt a 
good reputation for us all who 
carry a positive attitude about be- 
ing part of a Greek organization. 
The benefits of belonging to a 
sorority have far outweighed the 
negative things I've seen occur. 
No organization is flawless. But 
I've seen these organizations (not 
just Greek) provide a positive 
spirit among a group of people - a 
spirit I feel really needs to be felt 
on this campus as a whole. Like I 
said before, it's what you make it. 
I hope everyone at Susquehanna 
makes the best of whatever ac- 
tivities they take on. 

The Sisters of Sigma Kappa 
would like to extend their con- 
gratulations to the new Sisters of 
Zeta Tau Alpha and wish you 
much success in the future. 

And to the brothers of Theta 
Chi, it's about time we celebrate 
our success with the Home- 
coming float. I'm sure the 
cocktail party will be a good time. 
In celebration of Sig Ep 
coming off probation we donate 
to them a bucket of sand to place 
in the middle of their dance floor! 
Just a gag of course. We ap- 
preciate your hospitality. 

I've brought you Sigma 
spotlight, thoughts for the week, 
and tried to keep you informed 
about what our organization and 
sisterhood are doing, and "Until 
your eyes meet Sigma print 
again." Now I leave you with

That's right folks, you're not 
dreaming, another term here at 
SU has dwindled down to the 
ever-present "Final's Week." 
Hopefully finals will prove to be 
the best Christmas present given 
to all. Good luck to all students 
and faculty on this important 

Just to make sure it gets in 
print I want to congratulate the 
five new brothers of Phi Mu 
Delta who were initiated on Nov. 
23, 1985. They are: Charles 
Buckley, Pete Digiacomo, Greg 
Jerrehian, Brian Kahan, and Joe 
Wolfe. It couldn't have come any 
sooner for Brian, who needed his 
life back by turkey day. Welcome 
aboard the Mudhouse express 
guys, I'm sure your ride will be an 
adventurous one. 

The brothers of Phi Mu Delta 
would like to extend a thank you 
to the brothers of Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon for their neighborliness after 
hearing that Old Faithful had 
erupted at the Mudhouse last 
weekend. Your kindness is ap- 

Phi Mu Delta would like to 
congratulate the new sisters of 
Zeta Tau Alpha. May you con- 
tinue to grow and prosper on 
SU's campus. We would also like 
to congratulate the new members 
of Lambda Chi Alpha into the 
greek system. 

As far as last week goes, our 
Hawaiian and Pearl Harbor par- 
ties sure were successful. A lot of 
people got the feeling they were 
actually on a sinking ship if they 
saw the downstairs bathroom. It 
will be remembered in Phi Mu 
Delta history as the evening 
when Old Faithful erupted on the 
SU campus. Beefsteak McLarge 
showed off his best feature while 
attempting to plug her up. 
Thanks to some quick thinking 
by some of the brothers the prob- 
lem was under control and 
nobody was hurt. It was all in the 
line of duty Lumber. If for 
nothing else, the occurrrence pro- 
duced some great quotes of the 
week. On the top of the list is 
Brother Lackawitz's quote, 
"there's a leak in the bathroom." 
That was followed by, in a matter 
( of minutes, Calve's quote 
directed at brother Lumber, 
"Lumber get a drill." These two 
are definitely in the top 5 of all 
time. There also was a loud out- 
burst by Timmo Saturday night 
that got everyone's attention. 

The AOW award was 
presented to brother Todd for the 
first time this year. It was a 
unanimous decision in Todd's 
favor, or shall I say in Todd's lit 
tie hairy friends favor. It seems 
that Todd was lost without his lit- 
tle friend on Saturday night. It's 
O.K. Todd, we all have that little 
child in us. Thanks goes out to 
Brother Digby for uncapping the 
entire event. 

Since this is the last Crusader 
issue of 1985, it seems fitting that 
we should give out some awards 
for the best performances of the 
year. The first award goes to the 
brothers who showed up in 
August to clean up our newly ac- 
quired house. Without you guys' 
hard work we would have been 
lost those first couple of weeks. 
What you receive is a $1000 
check to good old Wenzels Hard

ware Store for renovation of the 
house next summer. Along the 
lines of hardware, our second 
award goes to Lumber as our resi- 
dent handy man. He receives a 
lifetime subscription to the 
"Green Army" how to fix it 
yourself manual. Johnny Wad 
receives the "Re-Education" 
award for imparting his scholarly 
wisdom upon the brotherhood 
again. The "Lankiness" award 
goes out to two recipients this 
year. They are Lanky Harry and 
Lanky Los. They will receive a 
pair of extra large suspenders for 
no apparent reason. The "Stud" 
of the year award goes to Litey 
for successfully receiving no 
female counterparts. The 
"Scholarship" award goes to ex- 
tinct brother Tarl for getting 
thrown out of school, therefore 
being donned "The Cumebuster." 
The "Loudness" award goes to 
brother Jay where it will remain 
until he graduates because of his 
earthshattering speech. Shame 
gets the "Vavoom" award for a 
large mouth while Buckley gets 
the "X-Tra Large" award for an 
aspiring occurrence. Timmo and 
Y.T. team up for the "Strangest 
Purchase of the year" award with 
their two-wheeled wonder bike. 
The two quotes of the year go to 
Rambo and Dooey respectively. 
Rambo's unforgettable answer 
was "I'm sorry, but I won't 
apologize." Dooey's happened 
just a few short weeks ago with, 
"Calve, I've got everything under 
control." Rux gets the "I Love 
ARA" award. He receives a 
lifetime job at SU as the "Butter- 
Man." Topher receives ten cases 
of ice cold Bud for dancing at 1 
party. (Beer's Beer) Rich receives 
the "Humanitarian" award for 
restoring life back into ZALLY. 
The final award has to go to Tarl 
for being named AOL for an 
unmentionable happening. 

We now would like to recap 
the year in Phi Mu Delta history. 
It all started up on Bird Moun- 
tain in the modular unit. The Na- 
tional Anthem never sounded 
any better echoing throughout 
the campus. Our winter formal at 
Holiday Inn produced some 
memorable occurrences. Lumber 
had quite a sewing problem dur- 
ing the evening while Paul had 
the cutest date there: Brucey. Our 
first pledge class did a ballsy job 
with their Swim-A-Thon and 
were later initiated on Feb. 9, 
1985. Just before term II ended a 
few of us traveled to Cal. St. 
Univ. of Pa. where "Pumpkin" 
forgot his wallet. The weather 
started getting warmer and the 
furniture started moving outside. 
Even while the sun went down 
Harry felt obligated to sleep in 
the dark. Our first Tag Day was 
during last Spring. That and 
other similar fund raisers helped 
us raise over $2000 for certain 
organizations. We're certainly 
proud of that. April 3rd marked 
our first full year back on SU 
campus. Our second annual Toga 
Party would- have made John 
Belushi smile. Greek Week pro 
duced a fine time for some who 
rode on the raft. Thanks for spot- 
ting me Los, III pay ya back in 
1988. R.E.M. made its way to 
Bucknell last spring and of course 
Phi Mu Delta was there. What a 
great American Band. Helping 

Alpha Delta Pi out at their Rock 
A-Thon was certainly a splash. 
Twisting by the pool got out of 
hand but added much excitement 
to their rocking. We look forward 
to the same fun this year. Sum- 
mer was a nice break for a little 
while but soon enough we were 
back here at SU. With Calve's 
takeover of President came the 
ever popular AOW and ever 
since there's been some laughter 
at our meetings. Some 
memorable parties this fall were 
the boxer shorts party and Alpha 
Delta Pi's initiation party. And 
who could forget that ballsy 
Halloween party that our ballsy 
little sisters had for us. We also 
musn't forget the little fat pig that 
was roasted. Parents Weekend 
brought out the best in Curtis 
and the brotherhood dinner and 
Anchorman contest will never be 
forgotten. Finally, the initiation 
party for our new brothers. 1985 
has supplied Phi Mu Delta with 
some really great times. We'd like 
to thank all who had helped out 
or dealt with Phi Mu Delta. 
Hopefully we will do well on our 
exams to cap off a great year. 
There is still one more suprise in 
store for everyone before the year 
ends. The Giants will be in the 
Super Bowl and will win the 
Vince Lombardi trophy after 
they defeat the N.Y. Jets in a 
defensive struggle. 

Phi Mu Delta wishes everyone 
a healthy and happy holiday. 
Thank You, 
Dooey & Pumpkin

Editors Note: This is the 
Greek columns which were 
not run in last week's issue. 


Well we're back for a brief 2 
weeks, and then at last this 
dreaded, never-ending semester is 
over.. .and it's possibly Florida for 
some of us lucky ones, and for 
the others, well you'll have to flip 
on "Miami Vice" on Friday at 10 
p.m. Talk to either Andy "Beach" 
Johnson, or Dave "Rock" Savino 
about discounts on memberships 
at the local tanning parlor. The 
Bunders are very much looking 
forward to the return of alumni 
Puzo, Gary, Murr, Chuck, 
Kelvin, Pat, Stick, Rocket, Cos, 
Nick, Tank, Z-man, etc. this 
weekend... They are arriving on 
the team bus for a very exciting 
upcoming weekend. 

Let's all support the tough SU 
hoop team, led by Brothers Bruce 
"Lerch" Merklinger, and Kevin 
"Fincat" Finch; both have 
undergone weight-training pro- 
grams, and look much stronger 
for this season's long strenuous 
schedule. Lambda formal is next 
Friday, so get your dates guys... 
Good luck to our 9 up-

P.S. A big congratulations to 
Gary Pontecorvo, who is now a 
N.J. state trooper, and Kevin Jen 
ningson receiving his PA driver's 
license (and new car). 


Well, hello there! How are you 
doing? How was your Thanks- 
giving break? What did you have 
to eat? I had turkey. 

Enough crap! The bare fact of 
the matter is that it's one o'clock 
Tuesday morning, and I've got an 
"It's Greek To Us" article due in 
eleven hours. No problem — just 
won't sleep tonight, that's all. Ill 
probably crash in time for my 
eight o'clock class, though. 

Actually, there's not all that 
much to write about this week. 
But, as we've said before, we all 
know that it's quality that counts 
— not quantity. 

Particularly fine quality was 
the performance of "New 
Rebellion" two weeks ago at 
Bucknell's Sigma Chi fraternity; 
one helluva show Rich and Dave! 
And, one helluva turnout all you 

Gadzooks! It's that long-lost, 
"wyglin" brother Dave "Pee 
Wee" Salerno! Dave's just 
stopped in to hang some short B's 
before he hits the road again. 
He's been "hauiin' his load" all 
over the U.S.A. since graduation 
last spring. Dave's now apparent- 
ly making a pitstop here on his 
way back home from Texas — 
that man is a regular modern-day 
cowboy! And, what a rig he's got! 
Happy trails, Dave! 

The previous line reminds me 
of something our new president, 
Dean Turner, once said: "It's 
hard to take a man seriously 
when he's got a six-pack on his 
head." Words to live by from the 
man whom no words can 

I would also like to report that 
we have a new anti-christ in our 
midst: Mr. Rick McCourt (I 
wonder if he's the one who pulled 
that dark deed on Brother Ken- 
nedy's hair). 

Oh, and congratulations go out 
to Darren Pelligrino and Cyndi 
Luer — "Pin City" for those two! 

Oh, wonderful! I've just 
realized that it's already 2:30 in 
the morning. So, I guess it's time I 
rambled. One more thing, 
though... Theta's still rushing, but 
time's running out. So, if you've 
been considering trying to join 
the ranks of spudhead, come on 
up to the house and hang with 
the guys this Monday night. But 
remember, "You've got to go 
through hell before you get to 


Well, here we are back from 
the Thanksgiving break- already! 
I trust everyone had a good time 
stuffing their faces. Let's review 
what's been going on at the old 
homestead shall we? 

First of all the Brothers would 
like to thank the Sisters of ZTA 
for making Friday night one to 
remember (not vividly however). 
Dave would like to thank all the 
first time participants of his 
game, new contestants are always 
welcomed. Second, Jim Faust 
would like to take this time to 
gloat over his defeat of those 
Sigma sisters who tried to 
challenge him Saturday night. 

In closing we hope that Herb 
gets his act together and gets on 
his teacher's good side... Herbert 
pay attention! 

The Young Ones 


Good Evening, 

We hope everyone had a relax- 
ing and (full-filling Thanksgiving 
break. (Can't speak for the group, 
but I'm about ready to finish this 
term and scram outta this place.) 

Next: Well, Assassin Week 
didn't turn out quite how we 
planned.. .we didn't lose exactly... 
to be truthful. ..we Let'em Win! 
We didn't want to deal with a 
bunch of sore-loser Bunders for a 
third year in a row. It's too tax- 
ing. Some of the hitmen on the 
Lambda side were especially 
resourceful... Eddie Grass, for in- 
stance, would go to all lengths to 
kill a girl; chase parked cars, play 
Spider Man and crawl on 
ceilings... whatever was necessary 
to attempt murder. ("Hello, Ed 
Grass is a dead man, may 1 help 
you?") Rudy-the squadron leader- 
is noted as being a blood thirsty 
savage. ..his downfall, like most 
super heros, is no laughing mat- 
ter. (A tickle a day.. .helps keep 
Rudy away.) Let's give him an 
"E" for effort anyhow. On our 
side, Donna Hansen was Miss 
Baha Queen- tearing up soccer 
fields at recordbreaking 
speed.. .what skill and handling, 
and to think, she ordered her 
license from Sears. We had a fan- 
tastic time anyway, the party was 
terrific too.. .but, next year well 
have no mercy, Slaughter at the 
Lambda House, film at 1 1. 

Thanks to everyone who came 
down to our Open House this 
Thursday. It is nice to meet new 
people and talk for awhile. Feel 
free to stop at the house anytime, 
the door's always open and the 
TV's usually on. 

Happy Birthday's are sent to 
Adele DiBari, who relinquished 
her role as a teen, Miss Nancy- 
peppermint-Patterson, Carol- 
finally 21 -Schneider, Margle- 
Macenroe-Guckes, and Miss No- 
Stick Pam Culos. While we're on 
a roll, let's hit all the children of 
January too...Kimberly- "I'll be at 
Seiberf-Tierney, Patti Phil 
Collins, Roomies Charlene Pelow 
and Martha Hamilton, and 
"Bud" Andrea Mahmud. Happy 
Birthdays To All!!! 

Congratulations to Zeta Tau 
Alpha on their installation. This 
is an exciting event for a sorority. 
We are pleased and thrilled to 
you all. 

Miss Alice Brown was elected 
to the MAC's for being an 
outstanding volleyball player. 
This is quite an honor, we're 
proud of you! ...President 
Bauman was held captive in the 
SAC sponsor-Cage the King 
stunt. Happily, we won the first 
place! We regret to inform, they, 
indeed, did release Miss Bauman. 
We had it all figured... no one 
would bring ransom so they 
would have to keep her and we 
wouldn't have to deal with her 
anymore... needless to say, her 
mom, Mrs. B. drove three hours 
to SU and set her daughter free. 
Next time well know not to let 
Amy have her one phone call. On 
the brighter side, the food was 
donated to a good cause... Other 
local news.. .Wedding bells may 
be ringing for Donna Neal, the 
grapevine says she has an 
attractive suitor "In Tow." (Ad- 
vise #47: Hold out for a 
carat.).. .Up and coming events: 
Be-Boppin' party at Theta this 
Friday, come as your favorite 
nerd. We are also looking for- 
ward to the annual party with 
Lambda for the underprivileged 
children on Dec. 15. 
That's all, 
Frank Perdue 


I hope that if I shared with you 

My many hopes and fears 

You would give me strength and 

And sisterly love for many years 
If you asked me for a rainbow 
I would try with all my heart 
To wrap it in a ribbon 
So it would never fall apart 
If you have a feeling inside 
Or a laugh you can't suppress 
Please share the feeling with me 
Then we can share the happiness 
I would do anything for you 
With a smile upon my face 
Because my Zeta sisters 
In my heart you hold a special 


Here's to a bond of love and 
friendship that will last forever. 
Happy installation and initiation 
to the lota Nu chapter of Zeta 
Tau Alpha.

Study A broad 

Students interested in spending 
their junior year abroad next 
year, or those who wish to spend 
the coming summer in a French, 
German or Spanish-speaking 
country should seek advice from 
one of the faculty members most 
closely associated with overseas 
study programs. Also, a limited 
number of overseas working op- 
portunities and internships may 
be available during the summer 
and/or academic year. 

Dr. Robert Bradford is director 
of International Programs at SU. 
Dr. Wilhelm Reuning can pro- 
vide useful help with regard to 
programs in Germany. Dr. Jack 
Kolbert, Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Modern Languages, is 
maintaining in his office a file on 
available study, work, and intern- 
ship opportunities for students in- 
terested in an overseas ex- 

In most instances, students 
who desire to reside overseas will 

need to have at least a basic com- 
mand of the language of the host 
country. A number of interesting 
opportunities are available in 
France, West Germany, Belgium 
(French), Switzerland (French or 
German) Spain and Latin 
America, Israel (English, French, 
or Hebrew) Great Britain, and 
Canada (French). 

Professors Bradford, Reuning, 
and Kolbert have their offices in 
Bogar Hall. The other language 
department faculty (Professors 
Cairns, Loera, Mowry, and 
Waldeck) are prepared to offer 
students the requisite counsel. All 
are located in Bogar Hall. Final- 
ly, the bulletin boards in Bogar 
Hall (Second Floor) and in Room 
209 Bogar have interesting data 
concerning international ex- 

Ideally, students should begin 
to make arrangement and meet 
with faculty about their plans 
during late January and 

Susquehanna's International Club 

Junior Search 

TIME magazine is conducting 
a national search for 100 college 
juniors to receive a TIME Col- 
lege Achievement Award. The 
magazine is looking for students, 
those students whose academic 
records and leader achievements 
outside the classroom clearly 
demonstrate their quest for ex- 
cellence. Cash awards range from 
$1000 - $5000 and will be given 
to the top 20 winners. These 20 
winners and their achievements 
will be showcased in a special pro 
motional section of the March 
1986 issue of TIME magazine. 
All 100 finalists will be given first 
consideration for internships with 
a variety of corporations, in- 
cluding: TIME, Inc.; The 
American Express Travel 
Related Services Company, Inc.; 
Ford Division; U.S. Navy Officer 
Program. Deadline to apply: Dec. 
31, 1985. If interested, stop by 
the Career Development Office 
and pick up application packets. 

Exchange Students Enjoy Experience Another cap Project Under Way 

Anyone who is considering 
studying abroad or would like in- 
formation concerning it should 
contact Barbel Schwarzer or 
Anne Katharina Weber who are 
exchange students from the 
University of Constance in West 
Germany. A special exchange 
program exists between the 
University of Constance and Sus- 
quehanna University for business 

These women went through a 
long exhausting process of apply- 
ing at their school to study 
abroad and of being interviewed 
by a panel which asked many per- 
sonal questions. 

The differences between Sus- 
quehanna and the University of 
Constance, are manv and varied. 

At the University of Constance, 
campus life consists of attending 
lectures. Class size ranges from 
100 to 150 students. Barbel and 
Anne enjoy the closeness of the 
professor/student relationship 
here at SU and the individual at- 
tention that it allows. 

Most students at the Universi- 
ty of Constance live in apart- 
ments, and there are no social ac- 
tivities such as formals. Students' 
dress is more casual at the 
University of Constance. These 
students feel that sports are much 
more important at Susquehanna. 
An important activity at the 
University of Constance is 
political demonstrations. 

Barbel and Anne find the 
students here to be very friendly 

J 0< o<^ 

and helpful. They both had 
trouble adjusting to the English 
language, since they not only had 
to speak it, but also write well for 
their homework assignments. 

They both belong to the Inter- 
national Club and enjoy meeting 
the variety of foreign exchange 
students. They find SU a 
challenge both intellectually and 
socially. They also find it in- 
teresting to talk with the Amish 
since they originated from Ger- 

Anne and Barbel were sup- 
posed to leave at the end of first 
semester but have decided to stay 
through the first seven weeks of 
second semester. They both live 
in Seibert and have adjusted well 
to dorm life. 

Barbel and Anne recommend 
studying abroad to everyone. 
They feel it is a great way of ex- 
panding one's horizons and is a 
valuable learning experience. 
Students can look at it as a big 
challenge, and when one ex- 
periences it, he can feel really 
good about himself. 

CAP, better known as the 
Campus Arboretum Project, has 
recently started another one of its 
long - term activities. The project 
began the constructin of a 'wet 
wall' along side of the pond 
behind Steele Hall. The plan was 
initiated by the project back in 
October and received approval a 
few weeks ago. The wall will be 
made from limestone and sand- 
stone graciously donated by a 
staff member. The wall will have 
a circulation pump built inside so 
that the growth of various mosses 
and ferns will be possible on the 
wall itself. The wall will take well 
into the spring to construct due 
to the cold weather. 

The construction of the 4 wet 
wall' is another one of the many 
projects that are hoped to 
beautify the campus and make 
the campus community more 
aware of what nature is up to at 
SU. The setting of tree markers 
around campus, mapping of a 
campus nature walk, revitaliza- 
tion of the campus fern and herb 
gardens planting of iris and mums 

outside of the Campus Center, 
the wet wall construction and 
even the constant care of curing 
concrete is what the arboretum 
project is all about. The project is 
starting to look for new members 
for next year. If you would like to 
spend a couple of hours or so a 
week getting your hands dirty for 
something that will blossom not 
only in the spring but all year 
round, come up to the biology 
floor of Fisher and see Dr. Holt 
or the third floor of Seibert and 
see a project member to find out 
what your CAP is all about.

British Prof to Visit SU 

Students, especially those with 
any interest in the 1 986 Sus- 
quehanna at Oxford Program, 
are cordially invited to take a 
short "study-break" after dinner 
on Tuesday, Dec. 17 to attend a 
slide-lecture presentation by Dr. 
Peter Cunningham from Oxford, 

Dr. Cunningham is a young art 
historian on the faculty of 
Westminster College in the 
suburbs of Oxford. Except for the 
summer of 1984 when he took a 
year off, he has annually taught a 
course in the Susquehanna sum- 
mer study program at Oxford. 
The course, entitled "The English 
Country House: Architectural 
and Social History from the Mid- 
dle Ages to the Present," has 

been the most heavily subscribed 
course among the liberal arts of- 
ferings in the Oxford Program. U I 
attribute the course's popularity 
to the fine teaching and sense of 
excitement that Dr. Cunningham 
brings to the course," comments 
Dr. Robert Bradford, director of 
the Oxford Program. "In addi- 
tion, students take twice-weekly 
excursions into the countryside 
around Oxford to visit stately 
homes and gardens that represent 
the historical periods that Dr. 
.Cunningham talks about in his 
classes. These field-trips very 
much bring the course to life." 

Dr. Cunningham has chosen 
the Christmas holidays to visit 
friends in New York City and he 
has agreed to make his first trip to 

Selinsgrove in order to see the 
Susquehanna campus and to visit 
faculty and students. Using a 
sampling from his large collection 
of slides, he will give a "preview" 
of his 1986 course on English 
manor houses and stately homes, 
their history and significance in 
the development of English coun- 
try architurecture, interior 
design, and landscape gardens. 
His slide-lecture will be held in 
Meeting Rooms 1 and 2 of the 
Campus Center from 6:30 to 7:30 
p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 17. All 
students, faculty, and the general 
public are invited to attend. Dr. 
Cunningham will answer any 
questions about his course for 
students interested in the 1986 
Susquehanna at Oxford Program.

Crusaders Notch Three Straight 

The Susquehanna University 
Crusaders basketball team upped 
their record to 4-2, as they posted 
three consecutive victories this 
week all over Middle Atlantic 
Conference-Northwest League 

The week started when the 
Crusaders traveled to Messiah to 
play the Falcons. The Crusaders 
had a difficult time with the 
pesky Falcons, but senior guard 
Don P. Harnum hit for a career 
high 35 points to lead the 
Crusaders to a 68-63 overtime 

On Saturday, the Crusaders 
played host to Northwest League 
rival Elizabethtown, as both 
teams entered the game 
undefeated in the league. SU 
jumped out to a 33-25 halftime 
lead as center Bruce Merklinger 
scored 13 of his 19 points in the 
first half. The Crusaders then 
scored 53 points in the second 
half and cruised past the Blue 
Jays, 86-71. Harnum again was 
the team's leading scorer as he 

pumped in 22 points. Mike Gress 
added 20 points to aid the 
Crusaders' effort and Merklinger 
dominated the boards, grabbing 
10 rebounds. 

The Crusaders were back in 
action on Monday as they 
defeated the Lions of Albright by 
14 points, 74-60. The Crusaders 
were again led by the big three of 
Harnum, Merklinger, and Gress. 
Harnum, who is averaging 28.8 
points per game after six games 
and was named MAC-Northern 
Division Player of the Week for 
the week ending Dec. 8, scored 
24 points, while Merklinger 
added 24 points, along with 14 re- 
bounds and 4 blocked shots. 
Gress chipped in with 16 points 
as the Crusaders reeled off their 
third consecutive victory. 

The Crusaders will be in action 
on Saturday, when they travel to 
Gettysburg to play the Bullets, 
before heading off to Boston after 
Christmas to participate in a tour 
nament at Clark University. 

Greg Betz 

Fall Sports MVP's 

Five Susquehanna University 
athletes have been selected to the 
1985 Middle Atlantic Conference 
(MAC) fall sports all-star teams. 

Junior Felicia McClymont of 
Tunkhannock, Pa., was named to 
the MAC-Northwest League 
field hockey ail-star squad for the 
second consecutive year. McCly- 
mont, an inner for the Crusaders, 
scored five goals and added one 
assist to finish third on the team 
in scoring with 1 1 points. The 
Susquehanna stickers won their 
final five games to conclude the 
season with a 8-4 record. 

In three seasons, McClymont 
has 16 goals and four assists. 
That makes her the second- 
leading goal and point scorer in 
Crusader history and the third- 
leading assist gainer. 

Picked to the MAC football 
select squad was punter Bryan 
Ravitz of Vineland, N.J. Ravitz, 
a senior, won the conference's 
punting title with a 40.5-yard 

It was also the second all-star 
selection for Ravitz, who made 
the team in 1983. He set a school 
record this year for punting 
average in a season at 40. 1 yards 
per kick and also established a 

new SU career mark in the same 
category as he averaged 38.5 
yards for 128 punts. 

Split end Rob Sochovka of 
Taylor, Pa., joined Ravitz on the 
football honor roll as a honorable 
mention receiver. A junior, 
Sochovka tied for the team lead 
in receptions with 24. The two 
dozon catches were good for 417 
yards and three touchdowns. On 
the gridiron, Susquehanna fin- 
ished 3-7. 

Garnering a spot on the MAC- 
Northern Division soccer all-star 
team as a back was the 
Crusaders' Jay Copeland of 
Coatesville, Pa. Copeland, a 
junior, scored two goals and two 
assists and was a stellar defensive 
player this season. The Orange 
and Maroon booters went 7-7-1 
on the season. 

The final Susquehanna fall all- 
star was Alice Brown of Hunting- 
don, Pa., on the conference's 
Northwest League volleyball 
unit. Last year's Most Improved 
Player and co-Most Valuable 
Player for the Crusader netters as 
a junior, Brown concluded her 
career in 1985 by leading the 
11-17 team in kills with 1 50, aces 
with 62, and service points with 

Chaplain's Corner— 

These are days when many people wax nostalgic. 
Unashamedly, there are some of us who admit it. The Christmas 
season restores and refreshes as we look back to Sunday school 
and other events. The hour that you could plan to be with us in 
Weber Chapel Auditorium this Sunday at eleven could stir 
anew something good in your heart — 

Lady Cagers Roll 

With two fine performances 
the Lady Crusader cagers kept 
their slate clean at 4-0, defeating 
Elizabethtown and Marywood. 
In the first contest, close to 1500 
fans were anticipating a close 
contest between the long-time 
MAC rivals. What resulted was a 
well-prepared Susquehanna team 
outplaying the Lady Jays of 
Elizabethtown, 65-50. Standing 
out for the Lady Crusaders were 
Sandy Bartle, Stacy Grady, and 
Beth Noble. Bartle contributed 
14 points and 11 rebounds. 
Grady hit for 12 points, 8 re- 
bounds, and had 5 steals. Noble 
had 12 points and 4 blocked 
shots. Beth Hoyle did the dirty 
work, dishing out 7 assists and 
grabbing 5 steals. Contributing 
off the bench, in the winning ef- 
fort were Tricia Ross and Kay 
Czap. Ross hit for 9 points and 
Czap went 6 for 8 from the line, 
on her way to an 8 point effort. 
Elaine Balaban contributed 15 
points for the Lady Jays, in the 
losing effort. 

In the second contest the Lady 
Crusaders were out to avenge last 
year's loss to Marywood. Once 
again Bartle and Grady con- 
tributed greatly, along with 
Robena Reaid, to the final 82-54 
victory. Bartle was high scorer 

with 21 points. She also con- 
tributed 8 rebounds and 5 steals. 
Grady pumped in 17 points, in 
addition to handing out 6 assists. 
Reaid, dominating the paint, had 
14 rebounds and 3 blocked shots 
along with 16 points. Maria Rossi 
hit for 17 points, in the losing 
cause for the Pacers. The win was 

victory number 100 for head 
coach Tom Diehl. What makes 
this accomplishment even more 
prestigious is the fact that Diehl is 
in only his sixth season as mentor 
of the Susquehanna Women's 
Basketball Team. Congratula- 
tions Coach Diehl and may many 
more wins come your way.

New Calendar? 

The SGA Academic Affairs 
Committee presented a proposal 
at the faculty meeting held Dec. 
2. The proposal suggested an ex- 
tension of spring break. While the 
faculty saw the value in a full 
week, the proposal was vetoed. 

The main reason that the 
spring break extension was 
vetoed by the faculty was that 
they felt a concern over the two 
exam days. The faculty felt the 
students would be at a disadvan- 
tage, because midterms, and in 
seven week courses, finals, would 
need to be moved up. The exams 
would then be taken during class 
time or in the evening, an in- 
convenience to the students, as 
well as the faculty. A student 
may end up with three midterms 
in one day and will have had in- 
sufficient amount of study time. 
Those students whose grade 

depends on a final exam may not 
be able to meet minimum re- 
quirements. The faculty, too, 
would like a full week's vacation, 
but they felt that the students 
academic welfare should come 

In considering the extension, 
the faculty also thought about 
other problems. When the 
calendar was made, the Artist 
Series and athletic games were 
scheduled during the days con- 
sidered for the extension. It 
would be impossible to 
reschedule these events. The 
question of moving the break 
later was suggested, but they felt 
that students would be busy 
working on papers, etc. They also 
felt that it was more important 
for students to break for summer 
earlier, in order to find jobs, than 
it was to have a full week at 
spring break. 


Susquehanna University 
basketball team captains Don P. 
Harnum of Selinsgrove and San- 
dy Bartle of Chambersburg, Pa., 
are the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference (MAC) Northern Divi 
sion Players of the Week for 
games from Dec. 2 to Dec. 8. 

Harnum, a 6-foot- 1 senior 
guard, scored 83 points in the 
Crusaders' three games, including 
a career-high 3 5 -point effort 
against Messiah College in a 
68-63 SU overtime victory. In the 
trio of games, Harnum converted 
31 of 60 shots from the field and 
21 of 24 from the foul line. He 
also added 14 rebounds, six 
assists, and three steals. 

Through the Crusaders' first 
five games, Harnum is averaging 
29.8 points per game. He is the 
son of SU athletic director and 
head men's basketball coach 
Donald J. Harnum and Virginia 
Harnum, both of Selinsgrove. 

Heading into Monday's game 
with Albright College, the 
Crusader men are in first place in 
the MAC-Northwest League 
with a perfect 3-0 record and are 
3-2 overall. 

Bartle, a 5-foot-8 senior for- 
ward, led the Lady Crusaders of 
Head Coach Tom Diehl to two 
wins to up their overall record to 
3-0 and 2-0 in the MAC- 
Northwest. She also had the 
highest scoring game of her 
career when she poured in 31 
points in an 85-41 triumph over 
Lycoming College. 

On the week, Bartle made 22 
of 37 shots from the floor and 
one of two from the charity stripe 
for 45 points. In addition, she 
grabbed 20 rebounds and nine 
steals, and dished out six assists. 
In the Lady Crusaders' three 
games to date, Bartle is the team's 
leading scorer with a 20.3 
average and is tied for the re- 
bounding lead with 24. She is the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George 
Bartle of Chambersburg.

Ethical standards require that 
the reporter not judge the validity 
of an issue, but rather supply the 
facts. He says you can't decide 
who the good and bad guys are. 
Another question concerns the 
fabrication of stories. 

The NBC policy states that the 
crews must not participate in the 
event. Unmarked equipment is 
used and they try to stay as far 
away as possible. They never 
stage events and do not allow 
people to do so because the 
cameras are there. 

Hazinski doesn't agree with 
people that claim journalism or 
communication majors do not 
prepare students to enter the 
field. While some feel that 
political science or business 
majors provide a better 
background, Hazinski says 
background courses should be 
taken in addition to the jour- 
nalism or communication majors. 
In general, Hazinski thinks 
students are better informed here 
than at other schools. He feels 
the faculty promotes such 
knowledge. He commends the 
students on their intellectual

MASH Star Visits 

Linville To Speak 

Larry Linville, of M*A*S*H 
fame was well as stage and screen 
achievements, will present a free 
public lecture on Wednesday, 
Jan. 29, at 9 p.m. in Weber 
Chapel Auditorium. The title of 

the program is "Larry Linville on 
M*A*S*H and More!" Linville 
will discuss the long-running 
comedy series and other aspects 
of his distinguished career. 

In addition to his portrayal of 
Major Frank Burns, Linville has 
performed on Broadway, in film, 
and on TV. His appearances in- 
clude "More Stately Mansions," 

on stage with Ingrid Bergman, in 
the film "Kotch," starring Walter 
Matthau, and on the small screen 
in "Mannix," "Mission Impossi- 
ble," "The F.B.I.," and 

Producer Gene Reynolds saw 
him in "Room 222" and offered 
him the role that gained him in- 
ternational fame, Major Burns. 
The network resisted the idea 
because Linville was a dramatic 
actor. His portrayal has become a 
modern comedic classic. 

Linville's current credits in- 
clude the plays "A Thousand 
Clowns" and "Twice Around the 
Park." He has also made ap- 
pearances in "Checking In," 
"Barnaby Jones," "The Love 
Boat," "Fantasy Island," among 

Linville resides in Brentwood, 
Calif, with his wife Melissa. He 
enjoys putting his degree in 
aeronautical engineering, from 
the University of Colorado, to 
use in designing, building, and 
flying one-of-a-kind aircraft. He 
also enjoys creating stuffed teddy 
bears for children. 

Phone Guidelines 

This is a reminder to all SU 
students who wish to purchase 
phones for their rooms. As 
AT&T states, there are certain 
specifications and guidelines 
which must be followed when 
purchasing phones, in order for 
these phones to operate on the 
campus system. They are: 

1) The phone must conform to 
Part 68 of FCC rules for terminal 
connections to the public net- 
work. A stamp or sticker stating 
conformance can be found on the 
base plate of the phone. 

2) The Ringer Equivalence 
Number (REN) must be 1.0 or 
less, with an A or B suffix, i.e. 
1.0A or 1.0B. The REN is found 
on the phone base plate, con- 
tainer box, or in the user instruc- 

3) The phone must be 
Touchtone to dial off -campus. Be 
very careful that the phone is 
pure touchtone and generates a 
touchtone pulse. Many of the low 
cost button phones actually are 

rotary type phones that generate 
a rotary pulse rather than a 
touchtone pulse. These rotary 
pulse phones will work for on- 
campus calls but will not work 
for making local off-campus or 
long distance calls. 

4) AT&T experience says that 
phones with the disconnecting 
device on the handle cause dif- 
ficulty. Inadvertant depression 
can cause accidental discon- 
nection during conversations. 

Guitar Performance Given 

Classical guitarist Gordon Fox 
Kreplin was in concert Thursday 
Jan. 23 in SU's Seibert 
Auditorium. This was a free con- 
cert-co-sponsored by the SU 
Department of music and the 
Arts Alive project. 4 

A graduate of American 
University in Washington D.C., 
Mr. Kreplin is known as a sen- 
sitive, spirited, and dynamic per- 
former on the guitar. He has 
studied with Jose Thomas at the 
Oscar Espla Conservatory in 
Alicante, Spain, and in 1977, he 
received a scholarship to perform 

in Andres Segovia's famed master 
class "Musica en Compostela." 
Mr. Kreplin has played at the 
Smithsonian Institution and the 
Folhar Shakespeare Library, and 
has been on television in 
Washington, D.C., North 
Carolina, Alabama, and 
Mississippi. He has also taught at 
several universities. This year, his 
tour includes a performance com- 
memorating Dr. Martin Luther 
King in New Wilmington, PA. 

During his visit to SU, Mr. 
Kreplin also conducted special 
seminars for guitarists. 

Who s Who Honored 

The 1986 edition of "Who's 
Who Among Students In 
American Universities And Col- 
leges" will include the names of 
33 students from Susquehanna 
University who have been 
selected as national outstanding

and potential for continued suc- 

They join an elite group of 
students selected from more than 
1,400 institutions of higher learn- 
ing in all 50 states, the District of 
Columbia and several foreign na- 

Outstanding students have

Business School Transfer Policy 

Application for a change of 
major to Accounting or Business 
Administration will be considered 
twice a year, during Fall and 
Spring Semesters. The decision 
on these applications will be 
made by the Internal Transfer 
Committee of the Sigmund Weis 
School of Business, in consulta- 
tion with the appropriate Depart- 
ment Head, and with the ap- 
proval of the Dean of Faculty. 

The criteria on which these 
decisions will be based are the 
following: » 

1. The number of current Sus- 
quehanna students allowed to 
transfer to majors in the Sigmund 
Weis School of Business is based 
on the number of students 

already enrolled as Business Ad- 
ministration and Accounting ma- 
jors, the number of faculty 
members in these Departments, 
and the facilities available. 

2. Priority will be determined 
by cumulative grade point 

3. Any student with a 
cumulative grade point average 
of 3.0 or higher will be allowed to 
change to a major in Business 
Administration or Accounting 
subject only to Items 1 and 2 

4. A student with a cumulative 
grade point average below 3.0 
must have successfully completed

No Excuses for Boredom 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing in response to a 
letter written by Amy Bellas. In it 
she states: 

"The campus offers little or no 
activities outside of movies and 
an occasional singer in the 
Crusader Castle. When was the 
last time the students were polled 
as to the content of the Artist 

As project manager of Arts 
Alive I think it is important for 
the students and faculty of this 
campus to realize just how many 
activities are offered. 

Last semester, besides the three 
Artist Series, there was the 
musical, a play, an air band con- 
cert, numerous music recitals. 
The actor Cliff Robertson also, 
came to speak, as well as many 
other speakers on current events 
such as South Africa. In fact, any 
given week of school had at least 
one or two activities offered. 

The purpose of the Arts Alive 
project is to help make SU aware 

of the wide range of activities of- 
fered on campus. 

By the time you read this letter 
our first event will already be 
over: a classical guitar concert 
given by Gordon Kreplin. 

Among the other activities 
coming up this semester will be, 
no less than five full length plays, 
three more Artist Series starting 
with the Dayton Ballet on Feb. 
15, a campus talent show. There 
will also be music recitals, One 
Acts, concerts given by the SU 
Singers and the University Choir, 
and Larry Linville from 
M.A.S.H. will be coming to 

All these events will be given 
free of charge to the students. 
These may not be events you are 
accustomed to going to, but isn't 
the purpose of college to explore 
new and different events? 
Besides, if the only other alter- 
native is to, as Ms. Bellas says, be 
bored, what have you got to lose? 

The quality and variety of 
events offered here would be the 

Our Comer 

Back again, folks. It's a whole 
new start and I, for one, am not 
ready for it. As this week has 
gone on, though, I've settled into 
the routine. I assume that's the 
way it has gone for most people. 
There is not much to say here. 
We're just getting started with 
our work on the paper as well. 

This brings up the perennial 
question of the hired help. We 

must once again ask, plead, and 
beg for assistance. We lost one of 
our main writers to transfer and 
others have drifted. Anyone who 
would like to help us in any way, 
especially reporting and writing, 
should drop us a line through 
campus mail or stop by the week- 
ly meeting, held on Wednesday 
evenings at 6 p.m. 

I'd like to think that we've 
done some good over the past

envy of many communities of 
similar size. 

As to the question posed by 
Ms. Bellas, Arts Alive conducted 
a poll of the students and faculty 
on their choices of artistic events 
last semester. This was used by 
the Artist Series Committee in 

our ongoing process of selecting 
events. Also the committee has 
four students on it who help 
choose these events. 

Both the Artist Series Commit- 
tee and Arts Alive are always in- 
terested in hearing ideas for 
events to offer on campus. 

I hope this letter has shown the 
wide range of events open to SU, 
and that any one with a fresh 
idea will be heard. 

So keep an eye out for posters 
and in the paper and in your 
mailbox for news. What to do on 
that boring weekend is probably 
right in front of your eyes.

Arts Alive 

semester here at The Crusader. 
We got some people aroused a 
few times, stirring this often 
listless campus to life. Even now 
we're still hearing the repercus- 
sions of the night class/test 
debates. Other problems have at 
least been recognized. 

We hope to continue to bring 
issues to the spotlight and not 
blindly allow injustices to prevail. 
This sounds "crusaderish," but it 
can't be helped. You have to live 
up to your name. 

In the issues to come we will 
'still be trying to refine and im- 
prove our skill, as we are still 
learning. I suppose when we stop 
trying to improve, it will be time 
to hang it up. Until then or until 
we are replaced, we will be right 
here, doing it each week, come 
hell or high water. 

I can't resist one question. 
Why was registration changed 
from 7 p.m. to the afternoon? I 
know of some people who had 
some difficulty with this change, 
but I guess you will never satisfy 
everyone. The main reason I ask 
is the rumor that was circulating 
before we left, saying the change 
was so the professors didn't have 
to miss any of the Super Bowl. 
This is a reasonable request, ex- 
cept that the Super Bowl is this 
Sunday. As I said, this was just a 
rumor, I never head an official 
reason. If that was why, my guess 
is they would never admit it. 

This is more than I thought I 
would write when I started, so it's 
certainly enough to stop. Enjoy 
the Super Bowl. I see the Bears in 
a rout, possibly the first shutout 
in Super Bowl history. Ill admit 
I'm biased, though. We Dophin 
fans aren't too fond of the 
Patriots. Until next week. 

Dear Editor: 

This letter is in response to the 
letter to the Editor by W. J. 
Walter. In this letter Jim Faust 
and the SGA were accused of be- 
ing a lazy and uneffective form of 
government. This letter stated 
that the SGA does nothing useful 
on campus, and Faust was an in- 
efficient leader. My question to 
W. J. Walter is; Did you yourself 
ever bring a problem to the SGA 
with hopes of it being solved? On 
our campus the SGA is an 
organization that was put there 
to help us, but they are not mind 
readers. They are not everywhere 
at all times, and therefore cannot 
solve all the evils that happen. 
One must also take into con- 
sideration the power given to the 

SGA by the administration. Let's 
face it, no student on this campus 
is an equal to an administrator, 
Jim Faust is our closest con- 
nection. SGA stands for Student 
Government Association, and it 
is only us the students who can 
make it work. If we don't ask it 
for anything, how can we expect 
to receive. Jim Faust has made 
himself very easy to reach so all 
may bring their concerns to him, 
this makes him a good leader. It is 
now up to use to bring him the 
problems. If you are still con- 
vinced that the SGA does so little 
for the campus, I suggest you pay 
a visit to the SGA office and see 
what you find.

Terrorist Kidnapping 

It seems that terrorist activities 
increase every year. Americans 
were held hostage in Greece and 
on a cruise liner in the Mediter- 
ranean last year. What can be 
done to stop these events? The 
Winged Psychos Of Destiny To 
Stomp Out Godless Pink Subver- 
sion Today League would like to 
propose an answer to this pro- 

America, as a world power, 
must expect these terrorist acts. 
Because the United States 
Government influences other 
governments and world events in 
general, terrorists believe that 
they can influence the United 
States to force events to occur 
which are beneficial to 
themselves. So, the government 
must formulate some method and 
policy to deal with these 
emergencies as they arise. 

Obviously, preventing a ter- 
rorist activity in the first place is 
very desirable. Needless to say, 
security at airports, etc. must be 

tight. However, the best security 
system may still not be able to 
stop a determined terrorist group. 
So, it must be made impossible 
for the terrorists to accomplish 
their goal. It may be pointed out 
that some terrorists are not sane, 
and their goals are not rational or 
predictable. This being true, no

The Crusader Staff regrets 
to announce that Ray E. 
Tressler, featured in the Dec. 
13 issue of The Crusader as 
SU's oldest alumni, died on 
Dec. 22. Tressler had recently 
celebraated his 106th birth- 


WQSU is looking for AM an- 
nouncers for mornings, after- 
noons, and evenings. All in- 
, terested persons should contact 
Dan Matteo at the radio station 
or through campus mail. 

There will be a meeting on 
Monday, Jan. 27, at 4:15 in 
Bogar 103 for all interested. 


The members of the Penn 
Lutheran Village Seminar Series, 
formerly known as the Doctor's 
Convalescent Seminar Series, are 
unable to continue their project 
next year. This project consists of 
visiting Dee, a semi-comatose pa- 
tient in the Penn Lutheran 
Village on Broad Street. In addi- 
tion, it may or may not involve 
adopting "grandparents" at the 

' home. It is very important to Dee 
and to the PLV home that a 
group of students continue our 
project in future years. If you are 
interested or need information 
about how to get the project go- 
ing, call us at ext. 377 or contact 

r Peggy Seville (box 637).

Copies of the 1986 Graduate 
School Guide have been received 
in the college's career planning 
and placement office. 

This directory contains infor- 
mation about master's and doc- 
toral degree programs at over 400 
colleges and universities in the 
Northeast and Midwest. Every 
graduate degree program is listed 
along with majors, tuition, names 
of deans and satellite campus ad- 
dresses. A cross reference section 
is provided so that students can 
quickly identify those schools 
which offer the degree program

In addition, the directory in- 
cludes a section of student reply 
cards which make it easy for 
students to write away for 
literature and application forms. 

Free copies are available while 
they last in the Career Develop- 
ment and Placement Center. 


On Saturday, Feb. 8, Sus-

To start off with, the entire 
brotherhood should be con- 
gratulated for returning back to 
the campus for the first time in 
our history. Thank God that 
Tarleton wasn't around last term. 

Before we left for break we sure 
were surprised by our little sisters 
with a fantastic X-mas present. It 
was in the form of a brand new 
VCR. It was a lovely gesture 
from the best little sisters on 
campus. Thanks alot girls and 
keep showing your face. 

Some of the Phi Mu Delta clan

resumed. It was a great time for 
all who showed up. Joe Wolfe

Cagers Stay On Top 

As the end of the first semester 
came to a close on the campus of 
Susquehanna University, the 
Crusader basketball team found 
themselves with a 6-2 overall 
record, 5-0 in the Middle Atlantic 
Conference's Northwest Division 
and a 1st place standing. 

After returning from a long 
semester break, SU fans have 
found that nothing has changed. 
The Crusaders still lead the 
MAC-Northwest with an 8-1 
record, 10-5 overall. 

On Dec. 28 and 29, coach 
Donald J. Harnum's squad trav- 
eled to Massachusetts to play in 
the Clark University Tourna- 
ment. In their opening game the 
Crusaders won a closely con- 
tested battle with the University 
of Massachusetts-Boston 86-85 to 

advance to the championship 
game. In that game, the 
Crusaders were matched against 
the host team, Clark University, 
and were defeated 85-73. 
Crusader captain Don P. 
Harnum was selected to the All- 
Tournament Team. 

The Crusaders returned home 
to the friendly confines of 0. W. 
Houts Gymnasium to host the 
Indians of Juniata, who had 
stretched the Crusaders to three 
overtime periods in their previous 
meeting. This game again went 
down to the final seconds, before 
the Crusaders won 61-60. 

Susquehanna then traveled to 
our nation's capital, but Catholic 
University handed the Crusaders 
a 69-62 loss and sent them into a 
game with MAC foe King's with 
an 84 overall record. 

Gress Scores 1000 

Gress, a 6-foot-3 forward, 
reached the coveted mark on a 
15-foot jump shot with 13:18 re- 
maining in the first half of Sus-

victory over Albright College. 

formally recognized prior to Sus- 
quehanna's next home game this 
Friday at 8 p.m. against Fairleigh 
Dickinson University-Madison. 

"Mike has been a steady per- 
former each of his four years," 

noted Harnum. "Even with this 
offensive milestone, Mike's con- 
tribution is sometimes more 
strongly felt on defense, where he 
is normally assigned to the op- 

ponent's best offensive player." 

A Lebanon Catholic High 
School graduate, Gress has 
started all 15 SU games this 
season. He is third on the team in 
scoring, averaging 1 3.6 points per 
game, and is also third in re- 

bounding, grabbing 4.1 caroms 
per contest. In addition, Gress 
has dished out 25 assists, blocked 
three shots, and made 10 steals 
for the Orange and Maroon. 

The sen of Mr. and Mrs. 
George A. Gress Sr. of Lebanon, 
Mike is a computer science major 
in Susquehanna's School of Arts 
and Science. 

Under the direction of Head 
Coach Donald J. Harnum, the 
Crusaders are 10-5 overall and 
8-1 and in first place in the Mid- 
dle Atlantic Conference (MAC)- 
Northwest League.

found ourselves saying— I don't know why I did it. How I wish I 

What's to be said for the bad (evil is the perfectly proper word!) 
that we find ourselves a part to? Maybe we can learn a lesson or 
two from that man named Judas. Why did he go wrong? Good 
question, really. This Sunday at eleven in Weber Chapel 
Auditorium well spend the 18 minute sermon period wrestling 
with this big-as-life problem. See you then and there— and 
always there's room enough for you to bring a friend!!! 

f *********** *********************** 

The Crusaders then dropped 
their second consecutive game 
and first in the MAC as King's 
posted an 80-78 win. 

Susquehanna then rebounded 
on a two-game road trip that saw 
them edge Delaware Valley 
72-66, behind the scoring of 
Harnum who ripped the nylons 
for 25 points. Harnum then 
pumped in 22 points as the 
Crusaders routed the Lions of 
Albright, 87-62. 

In the Albright game, senior 
forward Mike Gress reached the 
1000-point milestone in his career 

The Crusaders will be back at

they host Fairleigh Dickinson

day when Wilkes visits O.W.

tion of terrorism. Furthermore, 
the success of one terrorist act 

spawns many more which would 
not have occurred because of 
doubts that the government 
would really give in. Some 

hostage releases are conditional 
on the release of convicted ter- 
rorists, who will in turn commit 
more criminal acts. So, it is easy 

to see that acceeding to the 
demands of terrorists once, to 
possibly save lives in one par- 
ticular situation, only leads to a 
geometrical growth of these acti- 
vities, which cost more lives than 
are saved.

To show this policy in action, 
let's use some examples. Suppose 
a terrorist threatens to kill people 
in a plane, perhaps with a bomb, 

unless the plane is landed at some 
other place than its original 
destination. The pilot should re- 
spond by informing the terrorist 

that either he or she can sur- 
render or the pilot will crash-land 
the plane. If the terrorist does not 
surrender, the plane should be 
landed quickly and the people 
evacuated. Military forces should 
attempt to storm the landed plane 
and kill the terrorist as quickly as 
possible. Passengers should 
watch for any opportunities to 
overpower the captors. If the 

government is aware of a hijack- 
ing in progress, fighter aircraft 
should be scrambled to intercept 
and force down the plane. Iran 
had great success in stopping a 
spate of hijackings by placing 
revolutionary guardsmen on 

planes to overpower hijackers 
and by forcing down planes. 

What if a terrorist group holds 
hostages on the ground? If the 
location is unknown, attempt to 
buy time by negotiation until the 
location can be identified. Never 

acceed to demands though. 
When and if the location is 
known, military units should 

assemble and attack at the op- 
timum time. Obviously civilian 
casualties should be limited if 

possible, but danger to hostages 
must never interphere with the 
anihilation of the terrorist group. 
Early on an ultimatum should be 
given: surrender or die. Once 
they refuse to surrender, death 

must be made inevitable no mat- 
ter what the circumstances. 
Negotiation should be used only 
to get the early release of 
hostages and to prepare for the 
final assault, never to give in. 

In some situations, counter- 
threats may be useful. If the ter- 
rorists threaten to kill hostages 
unless prisoners are released, in 
form them that a proportionate 
number of their friends in prison 
will be killed for every hostage 
killed. This will make them think 
twice before killing hostages. The 
key is never to give in. Use the 
tools available but make sure the 
terrorists end up dead or im- 

prisoned. Special military assault 
groups should be formed to de?J 
with these situations. We of The 
Winged Psychos Of Destiny To 
Stomp Out Godless Pink Subver 
sion Today League firmly believe 
that this is the only way to per- 
manently eradicate this disease 
from the face of the earth.

What Do You Do If You Got The Flu 


Q. What is the Flu? 

A. A virus affecting the 
respiratory tract, which may in- 
clude one or all of the following 
areas - nasal passages, sinuses, 
throat, eustachian tube, larynx, 
and trachea, and/or the stomach 
and digestive tract. 

Q. What causes it? 
A. The cause is a virus. 

Q. How long will it last? 
A. The symptoms normally 
abate in 24 - 72 hours. 

Q. What are the signs and 
symptoms of an upper respiratory 

A. Scratchy throat with mild 
redness, nasal stuffiness, nasal 
discharge, sneezing, chills, pain- 
ful eyes, vomiting, cough - dry 

hacking, watery eyes, tiredness, 
stuffy ears, body aches, and diar- 

Q. What is the treatment for 

A. Fluids, Fluids, Fluids. In- 
creased oral fluid intake (3-4 
quarts per day) help to keep body 
secretions thin and runny which 
will help to promote drainage 
from the nasal passages or chest. 
Fluids are also needed in in- 
creased amounts if there is fever 
as it will lessen the chance of 

Rest— At least 8 hours of sleep 
each night. 

Analgesics: Tylenol may be 
taken. Two tablets every 4 - 6 
hours for fever and aches. We do 
not recommend aspirin 

Bartle Breaks 1000 

Susquehanna University senior 
Sandy Bartle of Chambersburg, 
Pa., reached the 1000-point mark 
for her collegiate basketball 
career in the Lady Crusaders' 
104-55 victory over Messiah Col- 
lege Saturday (Feb. 1). 

Bartle, a 5-foot-8 forward, hit 
the coveted mark on a lay-up 
with 12:46 remaining in the 
game. She scored one more 
basket before leaving the contest 
with 24 points on the 
night— 1002 for her career. The 
convincing win gave Head Coach 
Tom Diehl's team a 13-3 overall 
record and a 7-2 mark in the Mid- 
dle Atlantic Conference 
(MAC)-Northwest League. 

"This is a highly deserved 
honor for Sandy," said Diehl. 

"She has blossomed into a fine 
all-around player and team leader 
and is a real benefit to our pro- 

The Lady Crusaders' captain 
played in 15 of the team's first 16 
games. She leads the club in 
scoring, averaging 19.1 points per 
game, and is second in rebound- 
ing with a 7.9 average, trailing 
only fellow Chambersburg native 
Robena Reaid. In addition, Bartle 
has made 46 steals, handed out 
39 assists, and blocked six shots. 

Sandy, who is only the third 
player in Lady Crusader history 
to reach the 1000-point mark, 
was formally recognized before 
the Crusaders' men's basketball 
home game last Wednesday night 
against Messiah. 

Gargling: l A teaspoon of salt to 
one full glass of warm water 
every 2 hours if possible. 

Decongestants: Sudafed 30-60 
mgm. 3 or 4 times daily. This 
relieves nasal congestion and 
blocked and stuffy ears along 
with decreasing the production of 
excessive secretions. An- 
tihistamine or Decongestant com- 
bination tablet can be used in 
cases where allergic symptoms 
are also present. 

Environment: Increased 
humidity is important to main- 
tain comfort of the inflamed 
mucus membranes. A vaporizer 
or shower can provide this 
humidity and is especially helpful 
during the winter time when the 
heat is on and room humidity 
falls well below the level of com- 

NOTE: * Antibiotics are not ef- 
fective against the viruses that 
cause flu infections, but would be 
used in the case of secondary 
bacterial infection. 

Q. Can flu be prevented? 

A. Many measures have been 
tried including vaccines, alkalis, 
citrus fruits, high dosages of cer- 
tain vitamins, avoiding crowds, 
ultraviolet light and glycol 
aerosols. None of these has 
proved to be effective. 

Q. What is the treatment of 
diarrhea and vomiting associated 
with the flu? 

A. Since the flu heals spon- 
taneously what the digestive tract 
needs most is REST. It is ad- 
visable to limit the intake of food 
and certain liquids for 8-12 hours. 
A clear liquid diet consisting of 
sips of water, weak tea, boullion, 
ginger ale, and plain jello may be 
taken. Remember - frequent, 
small amounts only. You should 
eat no fruit or foods that contain 
fat such as milk or butter. If 
nausea and vomiting are present 
sips of water, gingerale or weak 
tea. As the symptoms subside, 
gradually add diluted tomato 
juice, chicken rice soup or 
chicken noodle cup-a-soup, 
saltines, puffed rice cereal, 

bananas, toast and jelly. Fre- 
quent, small meals will be 
tolerated better than fewer large 

Q. When may I eat a regular 

A. You should gradually add 
soft, cooked, bland, fat-free foods 
to your diet. 

If symptoms persist or get 
worse with high fever (above 101) 
lasting more than 48 hours, pro- 
duction of sputum, severe 
headaches, nausea, vomiting or 
earache, you should return to the 
Health Center for reevaluation as 
soon as possible. 

The Health Center is open 
from 9 - 5 daily M - F and 10 - 2 
on Saturday. The nurses are 
available 24 hours a day 7 days a 
week at 374-9164. We have an in- 
crease in the number of students 
coming to the Health Center in 
the past week. Except for the fact 
that you may have to wait a few 
minutes longer to see the nurse or 
the physician, the Health center 
is operating as usual. 

Rahter Memorial Lecture 

Dr. C. David Benson, professor 
of English at the University of 
Connecticut, Storrs, will discuss 
the literary variety found in 
Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" in 
a lecture titled "Chaucer's 
Pardoner and the Literary Varie 
ty of the Canterbury Tales." 

This free lecture is at 8 p.m. 
Thursday, Feb. 13, in Seibert 
Auditorium. It is the ninth in the 
Rahter Memorial Lecture series 
at Susquehanna. The lectureship 
was founded in honor of Dr. 
Charles Augustus Rahter, pro- 
fessor of English, who taught at 
Susquehanna University from 
1960 until his death in 1977. 

Dr. Benson, who has published 
numerous books and articles of 
Chaucerian scholarship, holds 
degrees from Harvard University 
and the University of California, 
Berkeley, and has taught at 
Columbia University and the 
University of Colorado, Boulder. 

Among his current works are 
the book "The Experience of 
Troilus and Criseyde," to be 
published in 1988 in London and 
"Chaucer's Pardoner: His Sex- 
uality and Modern Critics," an 
, article accepted for a forthcoming 
edition of "Mediaevalia." 

In 1986 he will , publish 
"Chaucer's Drama of Style" 
(University of North Carolina 
Press) and "The Canterbury 
Tales: Personal Drama of Experi- 
ment in Poetic Variety?" a 
chapter in "Cambridge Chaucer 
Companion" (Cambridge Univer-

Closing the Cellars 

Concerned Dorm Resident 

I feel compelled to write this 
letter, on behalf of myself and the 
rest of the student body, to pro- 
test the use (or misuse) of our 
money. This year, we, the 
students, paid $1430 for "room" 
alone. I would like to know 
where this money is going. 

It is my understanding that 
carpeting will be installed in the 
main lounges of Smith, Reed, and 
Aikens. Although this is a nice 
idea, it is somewhat ludicrous. 
Many people walk through these 
lounges many times a day. These 

carpets must endure huge 
amounts of traffic plus rain, 
snow, and mud, along with many 
other spills which are next to im- 
possible to clean. These rugs 
might only last a month. 

I suggest instead, other ways in 
which our money can be spent. 
For example, why not revamp 
the bathrooms? I find it very dif- 

Our Corner . 

ficult to get up at 9 a.m. for class 
and have to take an ice cold 
shower, along with many other 
residents of Aikens. Would it be 
possible to buy more efficient 
shower heads? If not this, how 
about quicker heating 
mechanisms, or better hot water 
storage? Or, possibly enough 
money could be scrounged up to 
replace the shower stalls 
themselves, which are in very 
rapid decay. Even windows 
which close properly would be 
helpful so that cold drafts do not 
blow over us while we are taking 
our showers. 

Another use for this money 
would be to heat our rooms bet- 
ter. It is bad enough having to 
take a shower every day with no 
hot water. It is worse, however, 
to come back to my room and not 
be able to warm up because it is 
only 60°F. When studying at 
night, I sometimes must wear 
gloves along with many layers of 
clothing and a few blankets, so I 

This week's column will be a 
conglomerate, mainly because I 
don't have a "meaty" topic. What 
I have are a few mini-themes. By 
the way, if last week's "Our 
Corner" was a little awkward 
sounding, there was a good 
reason. The fifth paragraph 
should have been the fourth, and 
vice-versa. It even happens to the 
Editor sometimes. 

There are a few things that 
need to be clarified to the 
students and contributors of 
material. A column such as this 
one is a good place to do it. First 
of all, to the writers and readers 
of the "It's Greek to Us' 

columns: We would like to print 
all the columns that meet the re- 
quirements each week. The fact 
of the matter is that to do that, it 
must be an 8-page paper. In a 
4-page paper, there is simply not 
space, and nothing can be done 
about it. We would love to do 8 
pages every week, but it boils 
down to manpower (and woman- 
power to the libbers). 

This brings up the second mini- 
theme. It's time for the semi- 
semesterly staff drive. To do the 8 
pages we dream about (I'm not 
sure if that dream is in color or 
black and white), we need more 
people. No experience, no 
resume, and no recommendation

do not lose the feeling in my ex- 
tremities. Can this money be 
spent to fix the heating system so 
the heat can be better controlled? 
If the money is not spent in 
either of these ways, it could be 
used to hire an exterminator once 
a month. I find it disturbing when 
I must unwrap myself, while 
studying, to get up and kill a 
roach crawling along the wall. I 
do not even keep open food in my 
room. ^ 

I realize that miracles do not 
happen all at once. However, we 
have put up with these conditions 
long enough. We have certain 
rights as students. These rights 
are being neglected. I, for one, 

will not stand for it any longer. It 
is my belief that changes can and 
should be made with all due 
haste. As a student, and a human 
being, I demand change.

required. You decide how much 
time to donate. We have all kinds 
of articles and odd jobs to be 
done. All with 7.9% financing or 
$500 cash back. Yes, Crazy Ed- 
die's must assign all stories, right 
now, today! 

Sorry, got lost in commercial- 
hell there for a second. On to the 
third item. We do encourage 
everyone to write letters to the 
editor or contribute articles. We 
must also state, though, that ar- 
ticles, especially, must be 
"cleared" through us. We need to 
have some idea of what's coming. 
And as far as letters to the editor, 
we have printed all that have 
been signed. Take a look at the 
letter from the Psychos..., a fit- 
ting name. This stretches the 
boundaries of what we will print. 
Since it is our responsibility to 
regulate what goes into the paper, 
we will exercise our right when 
we see it fit. Enough said on the 
"few things." 

We at The Crusader have been 
kicking around several ideas for 
stories. In the weeks to come, you 
can count on some questions be- 
ing asked. Some will be answered 
and some will just beget more 
questions. Either way, it should 
make for some intersting reading. 

Last, and certainly not least, 
we at The Crusader would like to 
express our condolences to the 
Cunningham Family on the 
passing away of Mrs. Cun- 
ningham's mother. 


Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. 
The Crusader will hold its weekly 
staff meetings. At these meetings, 
the assignments of articles for the 
next week's issue will be 
distributed. Anyone who is in- 
terested in writing for The 
Crusader is welcome to attend. 
The meeting will be held in The 
Crusader office located on the 
bottom floor of the Campus 

Recently, a decision has been 
made by Assistant Dean of 
Students Gary Smith, Dean 
Anderson, and Dave Henry of 
the Physical Plant, to close off 
the basements of Phi Mu Delta, 
Sigma Phi Epsilon and Phi Sigma 
Kappa to the residents of these 
houses, as of Feb. 10. All stored 
belongings must be removed by 
this date and failure to do so will 
result in billing for removal ser- 
vices by the University. We can- 
not speak for the other two 
fraternities, but, as Brothers of 
Phi Mu Delta, we have some 
problems with this. 

First of all, it is sometimes 
necessary for us to get into our 
basement quickly. It is often the 
case that circuit breakers trip off 
in our house. Having to call the 
Physical Plant each time this hap- 
pens will be an unwelcome hassle 
for both us and them. If we had 
to wait for security to come and 
unlock our basement when our 
insecure first floor sink was ac- 
cidentally knocked off the wall, 
irreparable damage would have 
occurred. These things happen in 
old houses, and consequences of 
accidents like this in the future 
will be much more severe should 
our basement be locked off to us. 

Secondly, if the basement is 
locked up, valuable storage space 
for both appliances and furniture 
will be lost. Presently, none of 
these objects are stored near our 

furnace. As a matter of fact*, we 
find this sudden interest in base- 
ment fire hazards puzzling, 
especially since earlier this year 
we removed 10 or more years 
.worth of very flammable debris 
from the area immediately sur- 
rounding the furnace. 

As for the claim of basement 
equipment being tampered with, 
we have not done so, unless turn- 
ing a circuit breaker back on or 
shutting off a water valve can be 
construed as such. 

What we propose is that the 
University, rather than taking 
away valuable and much needed 
storage space by locking the en- 
tire basement, instead enclose on- 
ly the area immediately surround- 
ing the furnace, and leave the rest 
open to us. We feel the Universi- 
ty should trust us with use of this 
space for the simple reason, as 
anyone who has been to our 
house this year can attest to, that 
we take pride in our house. The 
work we have done in beautify- 
ing and keeping the house clean is 
clear proof of this. Phi Mu Delta 
has made significant ad- 
vancements as a fraternity since 
our revitalization in 1984, and 
unnecessary measures such as 
this can only hinder any future

Eugenics Today 

This week, the Winged 
Psychos of Destiny to Stomp Out 
Godless Pink Subversion Today 
League would like to discuss a 
plan for improving American 
society. The advancement of 
science has created new methods 
for improving the human race. 
The field of genetics is rapidly ex- 
panding. Medical science now 
allows for the detection of defects 
in humans. As never before, it 
will be possible to make mankind 
as a whole better. 

How will this be done? The 
answer is eugenics and possibly 
non-voluntary euthanasia. These 
terms will be defined as follows. 
Eugenics is the controlled mating 
of humans, and for our purposes, 
their controlled non-mating. 
Euthanasia is the taking of life, 
either by the person himself or 
herself or by others, often, but 
not necessarily, in the face of ter- 
minal illness. It should be obvious 
to all persons with sufficient in-

The showcase windows in the 
entry foyer of the Roger Blough 
Learning Center are now featur- 
ing an important exposition of 
items related to the recent 
publication of Dr. Jack Kolbert's 
new book, "The Worlds of 
Andre' Maurois," under the aegis 
of the SU Press. The display in 
eludes autographed copies of 
Maurois's books given to Dr. 
Kolbert, correspondence in 
Maurois's handwriting addressed 
to SU's Language Department 
chairman when he was writing 
the book; manuscripts of 
Maurois's personal journals; 
photographs of the author's fami- 
ly and chateau in France, and 
newspapers and magazines from 
around the world that covered 
Maurois's death in 1967. 

Andre Maurois, a French 
writer who lived between 1885 
and 1967, was probably the most 
popular French author in 
England and America between 
World War I and II. He is con- 
sidered the most important 
biographer of the century as well 
as a significant novelist, critic, 
and historian. The holder of 
honorary doctorates from Ox- 
ford, Princeton, Maryland, Lima, 
and elsewhere, Maurois was 
knighted by the British Govern- 
ment as well as by President 
Charles DeGaulle of France. 
Kolbert and Maurois became 
close friends during the period 
when the book was being

The Department of Modern 
Languages is organizing a special 
annual Career Workshop for all 
students majoring or minoring in 
Foreign Languages. Graduating 
seniors and current juniors are 
especially encouraged to attend. 

The Career Workshop for 
Language Majors and Minors is 
being prepared in cooperation 
with Ms. Mary Cianni of the 

Careers Center and will feature 
presentations dealing with the 
following subjects: What kinds of 
professions, careers, and job op- 
portunities are available to 
graduates from SU who have a 
foreign language competency? 
These will feature both jobs in 

the corporate and governmental 
sectors. Also, the critical need for 
language teachers in the high 
schools and the improving salary 
situation in secondary education. 
The need for foreign language 
faculty in the universities (what 
to do in order to obtain scholar- 
ships, fellowships, and graduate 
assistantships in the large 
graduate schools that prepare 
people to work in post- 
baccalaureate fields in 
languages); the situation in the 
area of professional translators 

and interpreters; overseas and 
domestic internships; junior year 
abroad experiences. Some infor- 
mation will be provided about 
former SU language majors and 
minors who are now out in the 
field working. Information will 
also be presented about the many 
prestigious graduate universities 
who have expressed interest in 
qualified SU graduating language 

The Career Workshop will 
take place in Rooms 3 and 4, 
Campus Center, Wednesday 
evening, Feb. 26, from 7 p.m. un- 
til about 8:30 p.m. 

All language minors and ma- 
jors as well as undecided majors 
and minors are strongly en- 
couraged to attend. The program 
will feature several speakers. Dr. 
Jack Kolbert, Department of 
Modern Languages Chairman, 
will preside.

It's Greek to Us 


We would like to welcome 
back all the Bunders from a very 
restful vacation. We are all glad 
to be back and prepared for a 
very festive spring semester. 
Brother Andy even came back 
four days early and spent that 
time in the tanning salon. Brother 
Skursky was listed as M.l.A. ini- 
tially but we are pleased to an- 
nounce that he has arrived. 

The brothers would also like to 
congratulate Gary Epp and Bules 
on their graduation and welcome 
Bill "Ralph" Sofio into the house. 
The Super Bowl party was a good 
time even though the game 
wasn't very interesting. The 
highlight of the day was the coin 
toss in which we all enjoyed see- 
ing Euls lose. You should have 
taken tails Euls. 

Our around-the-world party 
last Friday was also a success. 
Festivities included a pot and 
potatoe throwing contest in the 
kitchen but we are sorry to an- 
nounce that Bunts lost his title to 
an out of house member. In other 
action, One Punch Monico re- 
tained his title and we are looking 
forward to this week's bout. 

We would like to inform the 
public that most of our parties in 
the future will be by invitation 
only. We feel that we have been 
too nice for too long. Brother 
Damian is in hot pursuit of the 
young individual who destroyed 
our outdoor lights on Saturday 
night. He was quoted as saying, 
"I'm going to get that guy but 
transportation could be a prob-

G.P.A. from last semester was 
below 2.0 and we feel obligated to 
help them. Come on guys hit 
those books, you are representing 
the whole Greek System. If you 
need any writing instruments we 
may have some extra crayons 
around. Whatever you are using 
doesn't seem to be working. 

We are disappointed that we 
do not get to play our neighbor- 
ing fraternity in basketball this 
year. We know there was a prob- 
lem in the scheduling and hope it 
can be straightened out come 
softball season. There is some 
hope in that sport. 

Finally, if anyone is still in- 
terested in the train trip to New 
York please contact Mugsy for

deepest sympathies to our cook

Hello, students and faculty of 
Susquehanna University and 
welcome to the "Profanity Issue" 
of Theta Chi "It's Greek To Us!" 

To kick off this week's article, 
the first thing we'd like to say is 
$%*&#© + &A@@ (not to 
mention #@$& #$*, #$% $% 

@$#%— as I sit here typing 
this article, I can't help but 
wonder if anybody was offended 
by last week's article. 

But mostly I'm thinking about 
a huge pair of $%#&!! (1 
apologize to all of you with clean 
minds, but I'm under strict orders 
from the President to make this 
article as obscene as 
possible— seriously. I mean, 
would I lie?) 

But enough #@%&, on to the 
@!$# of the matter! 

The first thing we Spuds would 
like to do is thank our peachy 
next-door neighbors for parking a 
blue station wagon in the en- 
trance to our driveway — that 
was one "helluva thang" to do 
guys! Take care, guys — and 
don't forget to use those utensils 
when you eat! 

Am I being too nasty? I mean, 
this is all for the sake of humor, 
you know. I'm glad I've made this 
point clear.

Speaking of making things 
clear, a certain fraternity on this 
campus is apparently miffed at us 
for referring to them as "Phi Mu" 
(obviously not their entire name). 
So, we here at Theta would like 
to offer our most humble 
apologies to those Delta brothers 

While we're on the subject of 
apologies, I would like to offer 
mine to Brother Craig Berm- 
ingham. Last week, I reported 
that Craig had been lavaliered. 
That is not so. 

But a brother of Theta Chi has 
been "struck by the arrow of 
love," so to speak. 

Brother Ron Parisi has formal- 
ly announced his engagement to 
Ethel Mukburger, 47, popularly 
known as the first American 
sumo wrestler. Congratulations, 

Ron and Ethel will be spending 
their honeymoon at Hoopy Arms 
Hotel in Mifflinburg (perhaps 
they'll be able to locate pledge 
Greg Moraski, who was last seen 
at the Ideal Market there). 

Well, it's just about time for 
me to wrap up this week's 
&%#$%$* column. But, before I 
go I would like to congratulate 
Susquehanna's hockey team on a 
%&%$#©* great record this 
year - 6-1-1 (holy ©#%$!). 
Fraternally yours, 
Quiffer Laktovious

Hello friends! First and 
foremost, we the Brothers of Phi 
Mu Delta would like to con- 
gratulate our new pledges for the 
spring semester of 1986. They are 
Jay Bertha, Kevin Garrity, Jim 
Higgins, Cosmo lacavazzi, Will 
Kadel, Phil Longenecker, Bob 
Lussier, Chris Marrangelli, Mark 
McLaughlin, Bill Schroeher and 
Pete Steinmetz. Welcome aboard- 
may your ride be an exciting 
learning experience. 

Over the past couple of weeks 
the Mudhouse has been under 
some serious renovation pro- 
cedures. The Brotherhood along 
with the pledges took the 
weekend off and now the house is 
in the best shape since it was built 
in the 1800's. The entire 
Brotherhood along with the 
pledges are to be commended for 
a job well done. Special awards 
go out to Brothers Wad, Lumber, 
Calve and Kahan for a great job 
on the barroom. Don't worry 
Rambo I didn't forget about your 
efforts! If I forgot anyone who 
helped out in the barroom it 
might be because I was working 
very diligently upstairs (ha ha). 
Seriously though, the house looks 
excellent, so stop by and check it 
out. I must also give awards to 
Brothers George and Topher for 
their overseeing efforts during 
the weekend. Some Brothers 
were complaining of brain 
damage because of a strange 
smell during the night. The 
results from Lackowitz test labs 
show no damage to the brain but 
a strange desire to watch "The 
Sure Thing" all day long. 

Last week saw many Brothers 
kiss another year of their lives 
goodbye. It seems that Brothers 
John and Joe Wolfe's parents 
must have gotten together to see 
when they would crank out those 
two winners. They both 
celeberated birthdays during the 
same week. Also visiting was the 
one and only Dooey Bob who 
spent most of his evening on 
Harry's floor. Also our very own 
Litey celebrated his birthday last 
week. I'm sure he kept his name 
intact throughout the evening. 

The AOW was back into full 
swing this week and with it came 
a new recipient. His name is 
Dave Ruckman. Dave is now 
soliciting dates for the Formal on 
Feb. 22. Applications are 
available at the ARA desk in the 
dining hall. Brother Dave also 
picked up the hat trick with a 
classic quote in the form of "who 
will go to the prom with me?" 
The question is still unanswered 
and Dave is still looking for a 

In closing I would like to thank 
the great state of Pennsylvania 
for donating the land without 
which New Jersey would never 
have been able to exist. Have a 
great weekend everybody and 
remember your parents because 
they made you. 

Dooey and Pumpkin 
P.S. Who invented liquid soap 
and why? 


Yes, after a two-week unex- 
plained absence, Phi Sig would 
like to wish everyone a happy 
start-of-second semester! 
Anyway, we're here, and you're 
here, so let's do it to it. Get it? 
Got it. Good! Anyhow, here's 
what's been happening in and 
around the environs of 401 and 
403 U.A. Senior brother Steve 
"Dusty" Rhoades was inducted 
as our new V.P. Way ta go, Dust! 
The recent onslaught of P.S.K. 
evacuees has also left us sans an 
Inductor. This is a very im- 
portant position in our house, in 
that he is responsible for the 
training of our Associate 
members. So, in his never-ending 
quest for Excellence, Jim "The 
Blue-Toed Buddy" Dietrich has 
graced us with his knowledge and 
expertise in training the 
Associates. Thanx Jim. (Rugby!) 

This then brings us to the sub- 
ject of our New Associate 
Brothers. Congrats go to John 
"Phones," Rob "Skels" Pierson, 
Jim, our indoor soccer goalie, and 
Mike, otherwise known as "Cap- 
tain Hook." Good job fellas, it'll 
be a blast - guaranteed! Glad to 
have ya' (yuk, yuk). Oh, and 
"McSweeny," forget what the P. 
and M. say, you're welcome 
down any time you like, cuz. 

Well, people, unless you've 
been hibernating under the re- 
cent snowfalls, you know that 
401 has been alive and rockin'! 
Two weeks ago, the "My Tie" 
party was a dangling success! By 
the time that 1 a.m. rolled 
around, the whole house was 
quite the shining example of 
scetchiness! We won't mention 
any names. Last week, the an- 
nual Beach Party was "Bitchin'!" 
In between dodging the 

Lifeguard stand, the Real Salt- 
water Pool, and the assortment 
of rafts, boats, and inner-tubes, 
the place got packed, and 
everyone rocked, 401 -style, just 
like the old days, when Manson, 
Conan and Trouble rocked the 
house all nite long Ah, 

memories Anyway, we were 

all treated to Spaceman's sexy 
Speedo Briefs, and Mac, the 
40-yearold Bag Man each diving 
into the pool and soaking the 
whole front half of the house. 
You guys just don't know how to 
draw the Hne! I mean it, now get 
outa here! Oh, and before I 
forget, we were treated to a visit 

last weekend, by alumni brother 
Andy "Trouble" Takach. Thanx 
for cruising down all the way 
from Baaaston. Next time don't 
wait so long to make an ap- 
pearance, huh? Anyway, it was 
good to see you, and we're glad 
all is going well. Maybe next 
time, bring the other 2 Boston- 
living alumni, Conan and 
Snowbunny, okay? 

Well, I know that it's Friday, 
and that you have better things 
to do than to read the paper, so 
why not hustle on down Phi Sig 
way? No doubt you've heard of 
any zany antics that might just be 
goin' on, so check it out, because 
you know, 401 rocks!!!! 

'till next we meet again,

seat and I was sitting there like an 
idiot in the front, watching the 
view instead of watching him and 
he got us in big trouble. We were 
downwind about 2 miles, 30 mile 
an hour crosswind and low. He 
was attempting to catch a draft 
and losing altitude all the time. I 
finally got my head out of the 
scenery and said you better get 
this sucker back. He was going to 
go around again. I got very snot- 
ty with him. I was 15 at the time. 
So, he straightened it out and we 
started heading back. We were in 
trouble and low. There was an 8 
foot fence between us and 7500 
feet of asphalt. The fence was 
made of railroad ties and barb 
wire - a tomato sheer - and he 
came sort of unglued coming 
back. He couldn't see worth a 
damn and I was in the front seat, 
so I said, "I got it." I took it away 
from him and I knew we weren't 
going to make it over the fence 
and I wasn't going to go through 
it. So, I created a crash and 
slammed the wingtip into the 
ground... it tore all to pieces but 
we were alright. It took us 8 
months to rebuild that sucker. 
Later we looked at his log book 
and I think his longest flight in 
Germany was 35 seconds, sliding 
downhill. After that, any strange 
person that came into the airport 
- Where's your log book? But that 
was my. free one. 

This interview was our free 
one. We enjoyed it, and we hope 
you did, too. 

Watts the Deal 

As February is already upon 
us, it occurred to me that there 
has not been an article that gives 
you, the faithfully educated (or 
over -partied depending on your 
outlook on life) an all-inclusive, 
comprehensive report on what 
the heck is going on here at 
WQSU-FM! Well folks, wake the 
kids and tell your neighbors; your 
worries are over. Each week 
"Watts the Deal" will attempt to 
keep you abreast of what's hot 
and what's not on WQSU-FM. If, 
and only if, you are not aware 
that we exist, this inaugural blurb 
of verbal dexterity will give you 
the poop, the whole poop and 
nothing but the poop on what 
goes on at FM 88.9. Here's the 
deal; WQSU is a 12,000 watt sta- 
tion located at 88.9 on your FM 
dial (that's all the way down to 
the left just above the Police-call 
scan and MTV). And, you got it, 
we are in stereo. Our format is a 
simple one, so pay close atten- 
tion; we sign on at 8 a.m. and 
play classical music until noon 
Monday thru Friday. This is 
good listening especially if you've 
had a particularly rough night the 
night before. On Saturday and 

Sunday we don't sign on until 9. 
Saturday mornings from 9 'till 1 
p.m. Linda Lou Stone gives you 
the best from her classic collec- 
tion of country hits, past and 
present. Sundays from 9-1 you 
can hear "On The Rock." This is 


Are you looking for some ex- 
citement to beat the winter 
doldrums? You'll be sure to find 
plenty of it at the 1986 Sus- 
quehanna University Fund 
Phonathon. This campus-wide 
event will be held in the Degen- 
stein Campus Center almost 
every evening (except during 
spring break) beginning Feb. 16 
through March 20. The Grotto, 
already transformed with new 
lighting and fresh paint, will soon 
be decorated with streamers and 
balloons, and filled with the noise 
of enthusiastic volunteer callers. 

During each of the 18 evenings 
of the Phonathon, students, staff 
and parents will be calling alumni 
and fellow parents on behalf of 
our annual giving program, the 
Susquehanna University Fund. 
Not only is this fun and a great 
way to do something special for 
Susquehanna, but special incen- 
tives will be offered in the way of 
nightly prizes as well as two 

a ^diversified mix of 
Christian Rock and Roll that 
sounds anything but sacred. It's 
really worth a listen. 

The rest of our weekend pro- 
gramming features a mix of 
Chart Rock and Album Rock un- 
til five o'clock, and then all 
Album Rock until 2 a.m. in the 

One other little-known and less 
understood segment of our daily 
format is Agwatch and Radio 
Smithsonian. You can hear these 
programs Monday thru Friday 
from twelve noon 'till .1:30. 
Agwatch encompasses the first 
hour, 12-1 and here one can find 
out -what's happening in the 
world of farming and agriculture. 
This is done courtesy of the 
Associated Press Radio Network. 
Inserted throughout this hour of 
programming is news (WQSU 
State and Local News, and AP 
Network News) and a sprinkling 
of country tunes. Radio Smith- 
sonian, at 1, has different 
segments each day that focus on 
issues that are pertinent to the 
way of being of the Smithsonian 

Lotsa' interesting stuff gets talked 
about, you just might want to im- 
prove your culture and check it 

The remainder of our format is 
simple, but hot! From 1:30 'till 
5:00, Monday thru Friday, our 
Chart Rock show(s) hits the air. 


grand prizes. The student who 
raises the most money in new and 
increased pledges throughout the 
phoning period will be presented 
with $100, while the student who 
gets the most new pledges will 
win $50. All volunteers will 
receive a "thank you" gift as well 
as a free five-minute phone call 
anywhere in the continental 
United States. 

The Phonathon is being coor- 
dinated by development office in- 
tern Ann Buffa. She is being 
assisted by a steering committee 
made up of Pam Culos, Claudia 
Kuhn, Laura McGinty, Kristin 
Meinig, Sharon Tirpak, and Skip 
Zimmerman. The committee is 
now organizing teams made up 
from members of organizations 
and other individuals. Anyone in- 
terested in participating can con- 
tact Ann or a member of the 
steering committee. 

Come out, have fun, and help 

We deal with Top-30 (not 
Top-40). Each week, a new 
countdown can be heard on 
Monday afternoon with Claudia 
Kuhn and Kris Pocaro from 1 :30 
'till 5. 

Lastly, but not at all leastly, 
our nighttime format! This is 
what we here at WQSU are most 
proud of. It's all Album Rock 
from 5 p.m. 'till 2 a.m.!! You say, 
"What's so important about 
that?" Well, if you notice as your 
turn your FM dial up and down, 
there is no other station that you 
can get that plays nothing but 
Rock & Roll!! It's a simple as 
that. There are specials every 
night too! At 7:05 Mon. thru 
Thurs. "New on Cue" can be 
heard. This is where we play new 
albums from start to finish taking 
time out only to flip the record. 
On Friday at 7:05, you can hear 
"Rockline." This is a classic 
album by groups from April 
Wine to ZZ Top; from Asia to 
Zebra; from AC/DC to Warren 
Zevon. So check it out, every nite 
at 7:05, you're bound to hear 
your favorite group/artist. The 
rest is just good old Rock and 
Roll from the 60's to the 80's. 
Got a request? Call up 374-9700, 
286-8400, or ext. 4378 if you're 
on campus. Any way you cut it, 
WQSU at night means good 
jams, so tune us in and crank it 
up 'cause it's Rock and Roll that 

just won't quit Definitely!

Challenger Remembered 

Frank Scobee. Mike Smith. 
Judy Resnik. Ronald McNair. 
Ellison Onizuka. Greg Jarvis. 
Sharon Christa McAuliffe. They 
were Americans, a small number 
of all of the people who make up 
the human race. They were seven 
names, names of anyone you 
might run into on the street. Just 
names, just another group of peo- 
ple, that is, until 11:40 a.m.. 
Tuesday, January 28, 1986. At 
that time, which for many will be 
frozen in history, the Space Shut- 
tle "Challenger" exploded, send 
ing those seven people to their 

"Challenger" seems to be an 
appropriate name for a ship of 
any kind. Yet, "Challenger" takes 
on a special meaning in this 
sense. Those seven human beings 
were challenged by the prospect 
of space travel. They died 
attempting to meet that 

Christa McAuliffe, most 
especially, was challenged by the 
prospect of space travel. She was 
a teacher, the first "private" 
citizen" selected to make a space 
flight. Out of many thousands of 
other human beings, she was 
selected to meet the challenge of 
space travel. Christa accepted the 
challenge wholeheartedly. She 
met it head-on. She never gave 
up, never surrendered. Even 


Our Interim Chaplain, is 
planning a very different and 
special day on campus come 
Wednesday, February 12, 1986. 

He plans to be in Horn Medita- 
tion Chapel for thirteen con- 
secutive hours— beginning at 
eight in the morning and continu- 
ing through eight in the evening. 

This unique day will be his 
"open door" to any and to all on 
campus— students, faculty, staff, 
etc.— to stop by and talk with 
him— to spend a little time in 
prayer and meditation together. 

And since it is Ash Wednesday 
in the calendar of the Church— 
the first day of the Lenten 
season— the pre-Eastern 
period— he will conduct a very 
informal twelve-minute service 
on each quarter hour— 8:15 a.m., 
9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., and all the 
way through to 8:15 p.m.— 
providing an opportunity to 
receive the Sacrament of the 

Altar for those who would 
welcome it. 

Never before has anything 
been attempted just like this. It's 
as simple and plain as it can 
be— the Chaplain, ready and 
available, to talk, to listen, to 
share a concern with any and all 
who make up the Susquehanna 
University Family. Do you have 
a problem? Maybe he can help as 
he listens and then offers a 
perspective or two from his years 
as a parish pastor and as an 

observer of the human scene. It's 
worth a try. He'll be setting aside 
the entire day— thirteen hours in 
all— from eight in the morning 
through eight in the evening. 
Let's take advantage of what he 
offers us in this way— come to 
think of it— twelve minutes in the 
Chapel never hurt anyone! Great 
day— and there's always the 
possibility of so much good that 
can come from it. 

Seibert 's Residents Complain 

A meeting for Seibert residents 
was held Tuesday, Jan. 28, where 
various problems concerning the 
building were discussed. The 
general design problems of 
Seibert, as well as what is being 
done about thenv were talked 

According to David Henry 
from the physical plant, he 
understands the problems from 
the poor design of the building 
and he has been fighting for im 
provements for several years. 

A major concern is the issue 
the heating system: the lack 
heat in some areas and a surpl 
of it in others. Designers are 

working on changes in the 
heating system, and new parts are 
waiting to be installed. 

Another issue of concern is the 
fire alarms. As many students 
know, there has been an 
unwelcome number of fire alarms 
during the first semester. Because 
there was only one alarm over 
semester break it is believed that 
many of the previous alarms had 

been unconsciously set, perhaps 
by cooking. Since changing the 
alarm system proves to be too ex- 
pensive, the residents are being 
made aware where the alarms are 
in the building, and are to be 
cautious when working around 
them. Faulty bells have been 
found and removed by workers, 
and any other bugs in the system 
have been removed. 

though she knew there were 
risks, and she understood the 
risks, she never surrendered. She 
died attempting to meet a 
challenge, and she never gave up. 

So, it's kind of hard for me to 
accept the term "private citizen." 
Or even the term "astronaut." 
Sha wasn't one, she wasn't the 
other; she was both. Christa 
McAuliffe was the first citizen to 
receive astronaut training: An 
astrocitizen. Or, look at it this 
way: She was another, special 
human being to train to be an 

If anything is to be learned 
from this tragic experience, 1 
hope it is that we must meet 
whatever challenges God throws 
at us. I believe that human nature 
is to be victorious in whatever we 
do. Sometimes (I hope all the 
time), those endeavors turn out to 
be a challenge from God. We can 
meet it, and we can succeed. If 
we need help, we can always ask 
Him. With His help, we can, in- 
deed we shall, overcome. 

Christa, we are forever in- 
debted to you and the rest of the 
crew. You have shown us that it 
is possible to meet challenges and 
succeed. How fitting that you 
should be numbered among the 
crew of a space shuttle named 
"Challenger." I love you Christa, 
and I thank you.

The Phenolumn 

By Doug Chamberlin 

XVIII The Flubonic Plague 

WARNING: The Surgeon 
General has 
determined that 
smoking, eating, 
thinking, and 
living can be 
hazardous to 
your health if 
you do them at 

This little sign is a reminder 
that the month of February is 
now upon us and that the 
Flubonic Plague has once again 
hit the nation (Susquehanna be- 
ing the apparent focal point) with 
full force. What exactly is the 
great plague? The disease goes by 
many names, including: The Bug, 
The Bla's, The "Common Cold," 
A 'Temperature," Fatigue, The 
24 Hernia, The Bummer, 
Oogyness, A "Stomach Bug," 
Yeachiness. Feeling Under the 
Weather, The Sick, The Out-Of- 
Its, High-On Virusness, The 
Downs, The 24 Hour Flu, or 
Dristan Heaven. No one really 
knows for sure what it is or what 
causes it, but we all know what it 
does to us. The symptoms aren't 
exactly those of a Cold or Flu, 
although there is usually nothing 
serious or persistent generating 
them. Nausea, sniffles, exhaus- 
tion, a rich supply of gas, and a 
headache that would make Mr. 
Rogers irritable are the more 
common problems encountered 
with Flubonic Plague. And worst 
of all, it somehow seems to snag 
nearly everybody during this time 
of year. 

I warn you right now not to 
use the Phenolumn as a doctor. If 
something is bugging your in- 
sides, it may or may not be 
Flubonic Plague. I, myself, after 
eating with my family in a 
Japanese restaurant, experienced 
12 hours of headaches, nausea, 
burning feet, twitches, 
multicolored burps, and an unex- 

plained fear of bamboo which all 
went away soon after I convinced 
my sister to put her shoes back 
on. During a more recent harrow- 
ing experience, I was fooled into 
thinking that I was tired due to 
lack of B vitamins and drank a 
shake (made in a blender) of 
yeast, raw egg, lecithin, tofu, 
yogurt, wheat germ, soy flour, 
magnesium, kelp and peanut oil 
flavored with lowfat milk and a 
pureed Big Mac. I managed to 
keep it down until nightfall. As it 
turned out, I was the victim of 
"the Bug" all along. On still 
another occasion, my friend suf- 
fered nausea, headaches, 
listiessness, and fatigue from 
Flubonic Plague which she con- 
tracted in early February but had 
convinced herself that she was 
suffering from what she called a 
"New Years Eve hangover 
flashback." What all of this 
means is that we may apply the 
term "the Plague" to any ailment 
that is not serious but gets us 
down for awhile, be it avoidable 
or not. 

If we can't escape it, we can 
make the best of it by utilizing 
certain techniques. First of all, 
society allows those of us who 
have caught "the Bug" a certain 
ration of pampering and sym- 
pathy. You may treat yourself to 
extra sleep and less work, in addi- 
tion to a few choruses of 
"Oohhs," "Aaaawwwws," and 
"Oh, poor baby'"s from friends 
who can empathize. Display your 
nausea proudly in the American 
way! One is also permitted to 
spend the entire day in sweat- 
pants while sick, a delicacy that is 
usually reserved for Dance and 
Phys Ed majors only. If you are 
really a glutton, you may even 
pretend you are very ill and 
parade around wearing two pairs 
of sweatpants at once to illustrate 
your plight, although this is 
strongly discouraged on hot days. 

Related to the category of sym- 
pathy is that of gaining brownie 

points. Remember, bosses and 
professors are impressed by some- 
one who completes his or her 
work while under the weather. In 
this case, violent coughing, sneez- 
ing, and especially stomach 
rumblings in the workplace im- 
press the conscientious employer. 

Use your illness to make 
friends. Being sick is something 
exciting to have in common with 
a member of the opposite sex. It 
can make for a fine conversation 
at lunchtime and can even lead 
on to bigger things (like 
hypochondria). And, men, don't 
be distressed if that pretty girl of 
your eye is no longer ill; a simple 
sneezing fit staged "accidentally" 
in front of her face will soon set 
the scene for that romantic Certs 

Finally, try to look on the 
bright side of having your own 
personal "bug." You're getting it 
over with now instead of saving it 
for later... You don't have to con- 
stantly worry about catching a 
bug if you already have one... 
You may honestly complain and 
be free of criticism... And 
sometimes, just occasionally, you 
get to take that fever medicine 
that honestly tastes like cherry

telligence that not everyone is 
equally well endowed. Some peo- 
ple have mental disabilities, i.e. 
retardation, mind affecting 
diseases, etc. Other people have 
physical disabilities, i.e. poor 
eyesight, missing body parts, etc. 
To improve humanity, all persons 
with substandard capabilities will 
have to be prevented from 
reproducing and so creating more 
substandard humans. Those who 
are injured or disabled due to age 
or have some other defect which 
will not be passed on to their 
children, will not be affected by 
this policy. Obviously, some 
standards will have to be set to 
define what is subhuman and 
what is human. The Winged 
Psychos of Destiny to Stomp Out 
Godless Pink Subversion Today 
League suggests a minimum in- 
telligence quotient of 100, deter- 
mined by I. Q. tests of the latest 
and most accurate type. Physical 
characteristics are a bit easier to 
detect, such as eyesight less than 
20/20, inherited diseases, etc. 

By now, some readers are 
probably invoking the name of 
Adolf Hitler, who instituted his 
own program of eugenics and 
genetic engineering. Many people 
today consider Hitler to have 
been an evil man and perhaps 
rightly so. Certainly his elimina- 
tion of Jews was distorted and in- 
excusable. However, merely 
because Hitler misused his 
powers does not mean eugenics is 
intrinsically wrong. There is great 
good to be achieved by enhancing 
the human race. Hitler used 
wrong and distorted standards of 
what made superior humans. To- 
day, however, more objective and 
reasonable standards can be set. 
It can actually be cruel to force 
horribly deformed babies to live 
agonizing lives, made possible by 
advances in science and the laws 
against killing. In the same way, 
it is cruel to bring people into ex- 
instance who can not live the lives 
of full humans because they are 
retarded or hearing impaired or in 
some other way are subhuman. 
This policy is also necessary to 

make up tor the lack of evolu- 
tionary forces in modern man. 
Man no longer has to compete 
with other predators for survival, 
so those who are less fit are not 

How can this policy be im- 
plemented in practice? First, all 
children should be checked after 
birth for defects. Those with in- 
herited/genetic defects should be 
killed immediately. Those with 
defects which can not be medical- 
ly repaired, but which can not be 
passed on to offspring, may be 
killed or allowed to live at the op- 
tion of the parents. Those babies 
with repairable defects should be 
allowed to live with the defects 

From this point until the 
children reach maturity, present- 
ly defined as age 18, they should 
be allowed to develop normally. 
At this age, all people will again 
be checked for the development 
of imperfections. Any found to 
have imperfections will have to 
be prevented from reproducing. 
Even those who pass, but have a 
family history of genetic diseases 
which appear later in life, will be 
treated as are those who fail. 
From this point onward, all who 
pass may freely live out the rest 
of their lives. There are two alter- 
natives for those who fail; 
sterilization or death. Which is 
practiced will have to be deter- 
mined by those in power. 

By starting now and following 
this policy, lesser humans will be 
weeded out. It will take a number 
of decades or centuries to breed a 
superior race of humanity. While 
the necessary measures seem 
harsh now, in the future, human 
suffering and misery will greatly 
decrease because of the mental 
and physical fitness of the 
superior humans who will evolve.

Friday, February 7, 1986— THE CRUSADER-Page 7 


"You're Gambling Every Damn Day" 

The Crusader "Board" had the 
privilege of having lunch with 
Larry Linville during his visit. 
We had a candid, informal talk 
on the various aspects of his life 
and career. This article will be 
assorted snippets from the color- 
ful conversation, with as little in- 
terruption from us as possible. 

The most obvious topic was 
M*A*S*H. He told us that he 
considered the fact that they 
were all theater people to be the 
strength of the show. He 
estimated that the six of them 
had about 140 years of ex- 
perience between them. It was a 
highly professional atmosphere. 
"It's a little law of the theater: 
'Leave your garbage outside, it 
will be there when you leave.' In- 
side you do the work." 

Linville got along with all the 
members of the cast. There were 
a few moments of disagreement, 
but mostly about how to make 
the show better. He was asked 
about his relationship with Loret- 
ta Swit. 

"The only argument I ever 
really got into with Swit was 
where we had this script where 
she was supposed to hit Frank in 
the mouth and she didn't want to 
do it. Actually, the director didn't 
want to do it either, Gene 
Reynolds. He thought it was too 
brutal and she thought it was 
unladylike. I said, 'C'mon, old fer- 
ret face has been asking for it 
through this whole damn show. 
The camera is there and it's, you 
know, (the scene dialogue) - Are 
you feeling better, are you ok 
now? Sure. Good. And they cut 
away and you hear 'smack' and 
they come back and I'm laying on 
my back. I said, 'If you don't get 
this on film, you're crazy.' So, we 
argued about it for about 20 
minutes, at the end of which I 
said, 'Look, the camera is there, 
it's all set up anyway, let's shoot 
it. If it stinks, you can cut the 
punch out...if it works, you've got 
something wonderful. They both 
said well, since we can cut it out, 
ok. I took Loretta aside and 
showed her how to do it. We 
went back and shot it and the 
next day_ Gelbart came down 
with tears in his eyes, he was 
laughing so damn hard. He says, 
'I never wrote that in the script, 
because I never thought you'd 
bring it off. After that, she saw it 
was funny, hell, she wanted to hit 
me in every script, (laughs)... She 
was very conscious of woman's 
lib and female equality and I said, 
'What's more equal than hitting a 
guy in the mouth.'" 

Linville was asked if he missed 
doing the show or was sorry he 
left. The answer was an emphatic 
"no." After 5 years he let go of 
the show psychologically and 
emotionally. He felt each had 
their own destinies. 

"My philosophy is when you 
finish with a project, you walk 
away from it... At the end of the 5 
years, when she flies off in the 
helicopter, poor old Frank is left 
standing there and says, 'Bye, 
Margret.' It was perfect. It was 

He said he was following an 
old tradition, "Leave them want- 
ing more." He felt that gave him 
a 30 year career, instead of only 
about 10, because he avoided be- 
ing type-cast. 

"(Leaving M*A*S*H) may not 
be too financially smart, but I'm 
not in the business for the money. 
If I wanted money, I'd have gone 
to Harvard Law and Business 
and screwed people out of their 
money for the rest of my life." 
We asked if he would tell them 
that at Harvard. "Hell yes." 

Linville was approached for 
"After M*A*S*H," but was 
uninterested. He did have a plan 
for the show, though. 

"They didn't like my idea. 
Klinger would run in and grab 
(Col. Potter) and drag him down. 
They'd open the door and there'd 
be a person sitting there in a 
straight jacket with his back to 
the door. Then, like The Exorcist, 
the head screws around and it's 
Frank and he says, 'Hi guys.'" 

He considers doing a series to 
be grueling. The work is 12 to 14 
hours a day. By the end of his 
time on M*A*S*H, he had done 
the equivalent of 27 full length 
motion pictures back to back. "It 
is a factory. You are a manufac- 
turer, 24 minutes and 10 seconds 
of film." 

"You have to be right. One 
failure can bury you. It's like 
playing Vegas. I had a friend who 
said recently, you want to go to 
Vegas? I said, what for, all you 
can lose is money. Because the 
game, the high pressure television 
game, is you playing Vegas, but 
you're playing with your mind, 
and with your psychology, with 
your emotions, with your body, 
everything you have. You're 
gambling every damn day." 

We asked Linville which he 
liked best: stage, screen, or TV. 

"I like all three of them, for dif- 
ferent reasons. Each one is a 
totally different process. Com- 
pletely different mediums. (It is a 
challenge) to function in all these 

mediums equally well. It's fun. 
Pictures can get awfully boring, 
when you're sitting around for 
days to do 30 seconds on film. As 
long as the 30 seconds are good, 
it's ok, but if not it's kind of 

We asked if the stage was the 
most difficult, since there is no 
second try. 

"Oh, that's absolutely right. 
Plus, on stage you get a nice 
bonus, which is, well, I just 
finished 8 weeks in Amerillo. The 
play was a fundamentally good 
play, but it had some places in it 
that were poor. And we kept 
messing around with it for those 
8 weeks coming up with new 
lines and pieces of business and 
kept messing around with it and 
by the very end the thing was just 
flying. That was the fun of that 
because you could go back and 
work on it. Even on Broadway or 
places like that you catch hell for 
messing around, that's a big no- 
no. It becomes, you know, like 
the Bible, you can't re-write it, it 

must be that way. That's kind of 
boring because I haven't seen a 
play written yet that can't be 
messed around with and im- 
proved. When you go to places 
like Amerillo it's great fun with a 
live audience to try out the varia- 
tions and changes. Write some 
bizarre line and throw it in and 
see if they laugh. If they don't, 
you write another one and throw 
that in and see if they laugh. 
Because you know there's a joke 
there and and audience should be 
laughing and if they're not, then 
you keep working on it. 

"On film that's a different 
situation, but you do have an au- 
dience there, too, which is the 
crew. And they don't see what 
your doing until you rehearse it 
for them because they have to 
photograph it and know where 
the equipment is going to be and 
whatever. So, the whole damn 
crew'll come in and watch to see 
what kind of creature they've got 
there. And if you can make them 
fall down and laugh, because 
they've seen everything, then 
you're funny, genuinely funny." 

What is Linville up to now? 
Producing, directing, writing? 

No producing, because that's 
where ulcers come from. He 
terms producing "insanity." He 
may do some directing in the 
future. He has written a 
screenplay and has another 
floating around in his head. 

"I had flying to do that was 
connected to New York. The 
wings were covered with ice and 
the ice would break off and hit 
the tail; it sounded like a gun go- 
ing off. I was with two other 
gentlemen who did not get on 
with brown pants, but did get off 
the aircraft with them, (laughs) It 
was a thrilling ride." 

He has flown since he was 1 1 
years old. He says he has had his 
one free crash, which he walked 
away from. We couldn't resist 
asking about the crash. 

"I was flying this airplane with 
this character from Germany 
who was supposed to be... a fly- 
ing ace. Later we found out he 
was a full-blown idiot. And he 
wanted to fly it from the back 

(Continued on page 4) 

He has had his most fun on the 
stage, particularly in "A Thou- 
sand Clowns in the World." He 
described that production as 
"stunningly brilliant." He does 
not believe that his best work is 
on film. 

He has done some recent TV 
work. He did "The New Love, 
American Style." He didn't want 
to do the pilot of "The Misfits of 
Science," but an added "0" on the 
salary persuaded him. 

"If I do it, I'm not playing that 
sissy Frank Burns," he said. In- 
stead, he did it like George C. 
Scott. "It hit the air and I get this 
weird phone call in the morning 
and it's (in Scott's voice) 'Linville, 
you S.O.B.' So, 1 replied, (again in 
Scott's voice) 'George, you're go- 
ing to have to get yourself a new 
voice.' (Laughs) He enjoyed the 
hell out of it." 

Linville has found that the jobs 
he didn't want to do came the 
easiest, and the ones he wants the 
most are the hard ones to get. 
You do the ones you don't want 
because they beg and plead and 
offer to pay you everything. It all 
balances out in the end. 

On the lighter side, Linville 
holds a degree in aeronautical 
engineering and has a great in- 
terest in flying. Our conversation 
often contained little mentions of 
flight. At one point we discussed 
Linville's experiences and views 
on air travel. 

Linville's philosophy on flying 
is that it isn't worth worrying 
about a crash. If it's going to hap- 
pen, it will happen. The only 
planes he gets nervous about fly- 
ing in are what he calls "vomit 
comets," small two-engine com- 
muters that land at little air 
strips. He had a story about one

The Susquehanna University 
mens basketball team clinched a 
Middle Atlantic Conference- 
Northern Division playoff spot 
and upped their overall record to 
15-5, 12-1 in the MAC 
Northwest League, with im- 
pressive victories over Wilkes and 
Lock Haven. 

In the Wilkes game, the 
Crusaders jumped out to an early . 
10-0 lead, and never trailed as 
they posted an 89-74 victory over 
the Colonels. Bruce Merklinger 
led the Crusaders by scoring 24 
points and pulling down 11 re- 
bounds, while captain Don P. 
Harnum chipped in with 20 
points. Carlton Corprew and 
Fran Decker played a solid all 
around game for Susquehanna. 
Corprew contributed 18 points 
and 15 rebounds, and Decker 
scored a season high 8 points, 
while dishing out 7 assists and 
making 4 steals. 

Susquehanna then played host 
to Division II Lock Haven 

University and used a solid effort 
on both ends of the court to 
notch their 7th straight win, 
77-64. Harnum was the game's 
high scorer, as he ripped the cords 
for 23 points, while Gress, Cor- 
prew and Merklinger added 17, 
12, and 12 respectively to aid the 
, Crusader's effort Decker and Jay 
Thatcher also made some ex- 
cellent passes from their point 
guard position to set up easy 
scores inside for the orange and 

With their 12-1 record in the 
MAC-Northwest League, Sus- 
quehanna has clinched at least a 
tie for first place in the league. 
They will be back in action on 
Saturday as they travel to 
Lycoming to play the second 
place Warriors. The Crusaders 
return home to O.W. Houts 
Gymnasium to host Lebanon 
Valley on Monday in a 7 p.m. 
contest, before traveling to York 
College on Wednesday for an 8 
p.m. game. Greg Betz 


On Feb. 1, Susquehanna 
wrestled Johns Hopkins on 
Alumni Weekend. Wrestlers 
from yesteryear gathered to 
watch the successors to their 
weight class battle for victory. 
What they saw was the real 
meaning of a comeback victory. 
SU went down 15-0 before you 
could say "takedown," with the 
1 34 lb. match being the closest of 
the night. SU's Gene 
Krumenacher was apparently on 
his way to a victory when JH's 
Ken Conner hit a 4-point move 
with :05 left in the match to win, 
18-16. The best was yet to come. 
At 142 lb., SU's Ken Peifer 
(8-1-1) won 7-3 and 150 pounder 
Chris Labrecque (10-0-0) handled 
JH's Houman Tavof-Motamen 
15-7 to cut the margin down to 8 
points. At 1 58 lbs. Joe Lawrence 
scored 5 points in the third period 
to win comfortably, 11-3. SU got 

a big win at 167 lbs., when Dave 
Jimison defeated JH's Lynn Voss 
6-4, and the score was now 15-14. 
At 177 lbs. SU's Paul Lesica ran 
into JH's Bill Nolan and suffered 
a 14-1 setback, puttin SU down 
20-14. With two weights to go 
the SU grapplers were relying on 
Steve Deckard and Steve Walter 
for wins... and they got them. At 
190 lbs. Deckard (5-1) won by 
technical fall (22-6) 6:53 into the 
match. The victory by Deckard 
put the entire dual meet on Steve 
Walter's shoulders. All that 
Walter did was build up a 6-1 
lead, through two periods, and 
hold off JH's Tom Kalup to win 
7-4 and give SU a 23-20 victory 
over Johns Hopkins, now 11-6. 
Susquehanna moved to 7-2- 1 and

Ladies On A Roll 

Realizing that a loss would be 
fatal to their playoff chances, the 
Susquehanna women's basketball 
team made haste of its three op- 
ponents last week. The Lady 
Crusaders first challenge was a 
fiesty Wilkes squad. Immediately 
Susquehanna jumped ahead, and 
the Lady Crusaders found 
themselves up 39-19 at halftime. 

Perhaps sensing victory too soon, 
Susquehanna seemed flat 
throughout the second half. The 
result was Wilkes outscoring SU 
40-36, only to come up short 
75-59. Leading the way for Sus- 
quehanna was Sandy Bartle with 

22 points (aided by 8-10 shooting 
from the line), 8 rebounds, 4 
assists and 2 blocked shots. Also 
shining for the, now 14-3, Lady 
Crusaders was Robena Reaid, 
Stacey Grady, and Beth Noble. 

Reaid, although held to just 9 
points, contributed 14 rebounds, 
3 blocked shots, and 2 steals. 
Grady, playing a solid game, had 
14 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 
steals. Noble also added 14 
points, along with 5 rebounds 

and 2 blocked shots. A big reason 
for the victory was SU's defense, 
which held Wilkes to 33.3% from 
the field. 

The Lady Crusaders next con- 
test was against Messiah, and it 
was over before it started. The 
Lady Cruaders held the hapless 
Messiah squad to just 23.9% 
shooting from the field, while SU 

shot an impressive 58.8%. The 
Lady Crusaders got a balanced 
attack, as seven players scored in 
double figures. High-scorer was 
Bartle with 24 points, along with 
her 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 

steals. Adding 11 points each 
were: Robena Reaid, Lisa 
Daecher, and Kelly Clemmer. 
Clemmer and Reaid also con- 
tributed 3 steals apiece. Con- 
tributing 10 points each for SU 

were: Beth Noyle, Stacey Grady, 
and Kay Czap. Hoyle and Jamie 
Forshey spearheaded the Sus- 
quehanna attack with 5 steals 
apiece, while Reaid and Nancy 
Stepsus each swatted away 4 

Rounding out the week, the 

Lady Crusaders traveled to 
Lynch Memorial Gymnasium to 
face Lebanon Valley. LV proved 
to be tough for the first 20 
minutes, going in at halftime 
down by 5 points, 33-28. The 
second half proved to be all Sus- 
quehanna, as the Lady Crusaders 
outscored Lebanon Valley 42-27 
to post the final 75-55 victory. 

Bartle and Reaid paved the way 
for SU with 19 and 10 points, 
respectively. Bartle also added 6 
rebounds and 5 steals, while 
Reaid ripped down 14 rebounds, 
dished out 3 assists, blocked 4 
shots, and had 4 thefts. Kay Czap 

and Beth Noble added 13 and 14 
points, respectively. In addition, 
Czap added 5 rebounds, accom- 
panied by Noble's 8 rebounds and 
2 blocks. The for Susquehanna 
was a result of rebounding and 
defense. The Lady Crusaders out- 
boarded LV 47-28 and held them 
to a measly 36.7% shooting frOm 
the field. 

The Lady Crusaders are back 
in action Feb. 12, as they travel 
to York to challenge York Col- 
lege at 6:00 p.m.

Swan Lake 

At Susquehanna 

The Dayton Ballet presents 
"Tchaikovsky's classic ballet 
"Swan Lake" as the next Sus- 
quehanna University Artist 
Series production on the stage of 
the Weber Chapel Auditorium. 

This beloved story, produced 
in two acts by the Dayton Ballet, 
opens with an engagement party 
for a handsome prince and a 
beautiful princess. Uninvited 
guests plot to separate the lovers 
and, with the aid of magic, suc- 
ceed when they change the 
princess into a lovely white swan. 

The magic, according to the 
legend, fails by day and the 
princess returns for her wedding. 
When the magician later turns in- 
to a black swan the princess's fate 
is sealed. 

The Dayton Ballet is the sec- 
ond oldest regional ballet com- 
pany in the United States. 
Founded in 1937 as an ex- 
perimental group for young 
dancers, it has grown into a pro- 
fessional company of 17 with a 
24-member adjunct company, 
Dayton Ballet II. 

In recent years the company 
has toured in Minnesota, New 
York City, Hamilton, Ontario, 
and Jackson, Miss. In addition to 
the full-length ballets, like the 
"Swan Lake" presented at Sus- 
quehanna, the company is com- 
mitted to premiering new works 
by the nation's finest young 

choreographers. This has lea to 
its having an astounding 190 
world premiers to its credit, in-

Anniversary Party Set 

It is the 10th anniversary of 
the project system at SU, and the 
formal celebration will take place 
Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. in the Evert 
Dining Room of the campus 
center. The guest speaker at this 
program will be Anne Valsing, 
the coordinator for the 
Governor's Private Sector Ini- 
tiative Task Force, out of the 
Governor's office. She will talk 
on what these volunteer services 
are. The task force presented SU 
with the Keystone award in 
1984. This award distinguished 
SU as one of 300 colleges to 
receive recognition for volunteer 
services in that year. Dean 
Anderson will present recogni- 
tion certificates to supervisors of 
the projects, as well as to those 
project members who have 
shown superior work and in- 
volvement effort in his or her pro- 
ject. President Cunningham will 
also cut a tiered cake to celebrate 
the anniversary. There will be 
other people at the ceremony in 
addition to those from the 
University and the guest speaker. 
The "Big Brothers" project will 
have some of their "little 
brothers" there, and several girl 
scouts will be present from the 
Girl Scout project. 

The project system at SU 
began in earnest in the 1975-76 
school year, when five projects 
existed. After 10 years the Senior 
Citizens, Girl Scouts, and Big 
Brothers projects seem to be the 
oldest thriving projects. This 
year, the projects are: Ar- 
boretum, Arts Alive, Computer 
Consultants, Career Crusaders, 
Doctor's Convalescent, Honor's 
Project, Big Brothers, Cross- 
roads, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, 
Sports Awareness, Students 
Helping Our Elderly, Communi- 
ty Computers, F.O.R.C.E., and 
the International Project. 

The project system, under the 
direction of the Residence Life 
Office, allows groups of 7-12 
students the privilege of living 
together in return for a commit- 
ment to volunteer service within 
the university and/or area com- 
munity. It provides a unique 
combination of the spirit of a 
special interest house with a 
pledge to both University and 
Community volunteer service. It 
is thought that this will bring 
about a learning experience that 
allows for individual growth and 

Project members have a com- 
mitment of 2-4 hours per week, as 
well as keeping a detailed, up-to- 
date "log" or "journal" of the pro- 
ject's progress and the contribu- 
tion of each project member. 

Each project has a manager 
who is responsible for com- 
munication with other managers 
and House Coordinators, and 
passing information to the pro- 
ject members. 

If you are interested in forming 
a new project, a written proposal 
is due to Carol Courtney, Resi- 
dence Life Office, in the campus 
center, no later than Monday, 
Feb. 24, 1986. When the pro- 
posal is submitted, the group will 
be required to have an interview. 

Interviews will take place from 7 
p.m. to 10 p.m. on the evenings 
of March 17, 18, and possibly 
March 19. All members of the 
group must attend. Selection an- 
nouncement will be made on Fri- 
day, March 21, 1986. If you are 
interested in a project that 
already exists, contact the project

Phonathon Starts Sunday Lewis Speaks 

Would you like to win $100? 
Take home prizes, have fun, and 
benefit Susquehanna at the same 
time? Then join us in the Degen- 
stein Campus Center beginning 
this Sunday at 6:25 p.m. for the 
Susquehanna University Fund 

Each Sunday through Thurs- 
day, from Feb. 16 through 
March 5, and March 17-20, 
teams of 20 callers will gather in 
the newly redecorated Grotto. 
After a half -hour training session, 
these volunteers will call alumni 
and parents for pledges to the 
Susquehanna University Fund. 
The SUF is vital to the continued 
progress of our university, 
because it supports current 
operating expenses such as finan- 
cial aid, library purchases, stu- 
dent services, and campus 
maintenance. Our overall goal for 
the SUF is $600,000 and the 
Phonaton goal is $75,000. 

Laura McGinty and Sharon 
Tirpak are the weekly chairs who 
have organized calling teams for 
the evenings of Feb. 16-20. The 
enthusiastic teams signed up to 

participate on these dates are 
made up of students from Zeta 
Tau Alpha, Kappa Delta, Phi Mu 
Alpha, Lambda Chi Alpha, and 
Reed Dorm. 

These volunteers will begin the 
battle for two grand prizes: $100 
for the student who raises the 
most money in new and increased 
gifts, and $50 for the student who 
convinces the most new donors 
to make pledges. As these prizes 
will be given for cumulative 
amounts, we welcome repeat 
callers who wish to add dollars or 
donors to their totals— as long as 
there are available phones! 

While most of our teams have 
been organized through campus 
groups, any individual is en- 
couraged to join in the fun. 
Nightly and spot prizes will be 
awarded, and each caller will 
receive a gift and a free five- 
minute phone call in appreciation 
of their efforts. If you are in- 
terested in helping in any way, 
please contact Ann Buffa or

Defense Fund Scholarship in 
1971-72. While working for the 
legal committee, he handled all 
complaints, including contracts, 

landlord-tenant issuer, and 
discrimination complaints. 

In 1972, Mr. Lewis joined the 
Philadelphia district attorney's 
office as a trial assistant, serving 
funder now Senator Arlen 
Specter. He was icgal counsel to

SGA Needs Better Communication 

Since ny letter of December, I 
have received quite a few 
responses, both informally and 
through The Crusader. In this let- 
ter, I would like to respond and 
make some new points. 

Most of the December article 
was devoted to criticizing the 
semester system and some con- 
current practices. Yet, I got no 

Our Corner . 

formal response to this issue. 
Most of the students I have 
spoken with about the semester 
system have expressed dislike 
with it. Very few favored it. Ad- 
mittedly, I did not take a random 
sample of students or a campus- 
wide poll. Perhaps most students 
have accepted the new system or 
feel nothing can be done about it. 

1 return once again with pen in 
hand to my weekly corner. Make 
that "Our Corner." I intend this 
week to focus on a single ques- 
tion, as I promised last week. The 
very thought should strike fear 
into the hearts of those with 
something to hide. 

This week the question gun is 
aimed at the Campus Bookstore. 
This neat little organization pro- 
vides our college community with 
needed services, no doubt. The 
question arises when one looks at 
the cost of these services. The 
general opinion is that bookstore 
prices are a little higher than 
other places. At last we come to 
the question itself: How much 
higher and why? 

To answer the first part of the 
question, we took a look at 10 
"necessity" items in the bookstore 
and priced them. The items on 
the list were: Flex shampoo, 

Safeguard soap, Crest toothpaste, 
Listermint mouthwash, Tylenol, 
Contact cold tablets, Verbatim 
computer disks, Mead spiral- 
bound notebooks and folders, 
and Bic pens. 

We then comparison shopped 
to price the identical items at the 
Rea & Derrick downtown and at 
Boscov's at the mall. We found 
seven of the items at Rea & Der- 
rick and five at Boscov's. Those 
not found at either were: com- 
puter disks and identical 
notebooks and folders. In addi- 
tion, Boscov's did not have 
Tylenol or Safeguard. 

The folders will be considered 
probably equal anyway, since 
they were only 35$ each at the 
bookstore. The Safeguard was 
only 40 higher at the bookstore, 
so it too will be considered equal. 
The notebooks will not be con-

Surprisingly, I got the most 
response on my inquiries into 
SGA (Student Government 
Association) activity. The opin- 
ions I got were very 
dichotomous. Many students felt 
SGA was next to worthless. 
Others were amazed or angered 
that I had the audacity to ques 
tion anything SGA does. Some 

An examination of the other 
items is in some cases staggering. 
A look at the table (Bs- book- 
store, no pun intended, RD- Rea 
& Derrick, Bo -Boscov's) shows 
the disparity of prices, and the 
bookstore is always highest. The 
differences: Flex, 57$; Crest, 29« 
and 39<t; Listermint, 38$; 
Tylenoi, 37C; Contact, 98$ and 
$1.18; Bics, 30* and 70<t. 

Some of these differences may 
seem small, but added up they are 
significant. The total bill for one 
of each of the items shows this: 
bookstore, $16.37; Rea & Der- 
rick, $13.52; Boscov's $12.82* 
(*since Boscov's was always 
equal to or less than Rea & Der- 
rick, $2.87 was figured for the 
Tylenol). The differences be- 
tween the bookstore and the 
other two are, respectively, $3.55 
and $2.85. 

The computer disks were not 
found anywhere, but the staff felt 
that $5 for two would be close, 
but slightly high. The computer 
project on campus is offering 
them for $2 each (though I don't 
know the brand). The bookstore's 
price: $6.50 for two. 

The second portion of the 
original question was why. It still 
stands. These across-the-board 
higher prices indicate that it is 
because of having various trade- 
offs, i.e. some higher and some 
lower. One possible reason could 
be the volume of purchase, since 
the bookstore's would be less. 
This cannot explain a one dollar 
difference in the price of Contact. 

The fact is that we just don't 
know why. That is precisely why 
I wrote this column. We do know 
that the bookstore is
